Hello I am 50 year old female. I have been taking Lasix for 3 1/2 weeks at the same time I got an right ear infection but both ears bothered me. I thought from taking my antibiotics and Prenisone it caused many issues. It turns out in may be the Lasix. Symptoms include my heart racing, shortness of breath, dizziness, watery right eye, burning in my ears, tongue, genital area. I also have ringing in my ears, loss of hearing, plugging of the ears, tingling and numbness in hands and feet.Tingling in my mouth. I have been to the ENT and my ear infection is gone but still having the ear and other issues. ENT doctor said it could be bacteria or issue with potassium level and least likely caused by Lasix I let my primary care doctor know I stopped taking medication yesterday. I have originally been taken Triamterene for 25 years, other than low potassium, no problems. My Endocrinologist felt Triamterene causing high PTH level so suggested I stop and if needed switch to Lasix. Wow this Lasix medication is very scarey and I am shocked to read how it can ultimately kill you.
