Furosemide Fall 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!
