User Comments about Lasix
28 Sep 2011 Lasix has helped to control blood pressure and swelling in my legs
   —Posted by Anonymous

13 Jul 2011 Lasix overall is a good drug. With the problems that I experience with fluid retention, when I take it, it does relieve me of fluid. The down side to me of this drug is that it cause cramping in the abdomin area and it increases the urge of urination, but that is what the drug is ment to do.
