 1  Fluid retention I got the worst of the side effects.It caused my uric acid levels to rise off the charts,which caused severe gout in hands and feet.It bought on kidney disease and muscle damage.So many side effects that there's not enough space to list them all.Be very cautious about this one. 57 2 years

 3  congestive heart failure I have only been on this drug for one day, although the dr has tried lasix for the past 3 weeks with no results she put me on this yesterday. I feel better,no chest pain, BUT I GAINED 2 pounds over night and was awake ALL NIGHT! I am still short of breathe, but that is nothing new. So I can't blame it on this medication. F 61 1 days

 1  Edema/fluid retention These pills caused paralysis in less than 12 hours after I took the first (and only) one. Woke up and could not move my hands. They were locked in fists. My speech was slurred and my facial muscles were also locked. I could barely walk. I had to be transported to the ER via ambulance where I received a potassium IV. These pills had depleted my potassium level to 2.5. I had another attack of paralysis in the ER. Do not take these pills unless your doctor has checked your potassium levels before prescribing. Mine did not and this was the most terrifying experience of my life. I will never, ever take these again. F 29 1 days

DEMADEX  (TORSEMIDE):  Torsemide is used to reduce extra fluid in the body (edema) caused by conditions such as heart failure, liver disease, and kidney disease. This can lessen symptoms such as shortness of breath and swelling in your arms, legs, and abdomen. This drug is also used to treat high blood pressure. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Torsemide is a "water pill" (diuretic) that causes you to make more urine. This helps your body get rid of extra water and salt.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
