  • my eyes have gotten so dry since taking 40 mg lasix/day. Even taking every other day I still have severe problems with dry eye. I have gotten eye infections also from the dry eye. Eyes will start to throb. I use eye drops during the day and 4x a night. Never had all these problems until started lasix. If I do lose fluid due to pill, fluid still comes back.

  • Lasix with low blood pressure
    Hello My Medical Family,
    My mom has been in ICU for over a month now. She has been on lasix for over 6 years now and for two nights the hospital has not given her lasix. I can see her legs and arms puffy filled with liquids and it makes me so sad to see moms in this pain. Dr kept telling us that her blood pressure was too low for them to give her lasix but for the past 3 hrs her readings are 114/55. Im just so torn knowing that she has her own meds of lasix at home that i can bring to her. Can someone out there please help? So thankful to have a forum like this to express our concerns knowing they would be helped.
