Furosemide Cough Causes and Reviews


Coughing is a reflex that keeps your throat and airways clear. Although it can be annoying, Coughing helps your body heal or protect itself. Coughs can be either acute or chronic. Acute Coughs begin suddenly and usually last no more than 2 to 3 weeks. Acute Coughs are the kind you most often get with a cold, flu, or acute bronchitis. Chronic Coughs last longer than 2 to 3 weeks. Causes of chronic Cough include

  • Chronic bronchitis
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
  • GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease)
  • Smoking
  • Throat disorders, such as croup in young children
  • Some medicines

Water can help ease your Cough - whether you drink it or add it to the air with a steamy shower or vaporizer. If you have a cold or the flu, antihistamines may work better than non-prescription Cough medicines. Children under four should not have Cough medicine. For children over four, use caution and read labels carefully.


Furosemide Cough Reviews

Thu, 08 Sep 2011

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!
