Furosemide Atrial Fibrillation Side Effects

Furosemide Atrial Fibrillation Side Effect Reports


The following Furosemide Atrial Fibrillation side effect reports were submitted by healthcare professionals and consumers.

Furosemide Atrial Fibrillation Causes and Reviews


An arrhythmia is a problem with the speed or rhythm of the heartbeat. Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common type of arrhythmia. The cause is a disorder in the heart's electrical system.

Often, people who have AF may not even feel symptoms. But you may feel

  • Palpitations -- an abnormal rapid heartbeat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Weakness or difficulty exercising
  • Chest pain
  • Dizziness or fainting
  • Fatigue
  • Confusion

AF can lead to an increased risk of stroke. In many patients, it can also cause chest pain, heart attack, or heart failure.

Doctors diagnose AF using family and medical history, a physical exam, and a test called an electrocardiogram (EKG), which looks at the electrical waves your heart makes. Treatments include medicines and procedures to restore normal rhythm.

Furosemide Atrial Fibrillation Reviews

I have the same feeling, definitely you are not strange.

Sat, 19 Mar 2011

I feel light headed, and my eyes feel dry as if wind is blowing. My vision has become unusually blurred and I there is a greenish yellowish tinge around my vision when I go outside in the light. When I first woke up this morning, everything I looked at had a greenish looking filter over it and when I went out to drive , my eyes were light and color sensitive to everything. It's weird as if I were in the Twilight Zone, gradually it got a little more tolerable and bearable, but there has definitely been a change since they gave me all this different medicine. I don't feel right or like myself.I feel strange

I am taking 40mgs of Furosemide daily it has really helped , i went for a drug screen for a job and it came back altered could you please tell me what caused this ?
Tue, 16 Sep 2008
After about 3 yrs of Lasix (20mg) I developed an unknown allergic reaction that caused blistering on my hands and feet. My feet would get 20-30 at a time and my hands would get hundreds at a time. I had to take medication to keep the breakouts minimized. This slow torture lasted 2 years or so. Due to a situation on my part that engaged my stubborn streak I was without lasix for a month. I realized that since I wasn't taking the lasix I also wasn't needing the pill for the blisters. Started lasix again... blisters. Stopped taking lasix... no blisters. After 2 yrs lasix wasn't really working anymore for me so it didn't really matter that I stopped. I could drink a liter of water have a lasix and still not urinate to excess. I am still sensitive to processed foods and drinks however that are flavored with the wrong quot;fruity flavoringquot; (somehow related to a chemical in lasix). No more blisters or claritin though. Yeah!
