I have to take lasix and potassium together. Yeah it sux. I go every 60 min to 90 mins 24/7... before I take lasix. Then its twice as often. I have kidney issues too. But if we dont... we would be alot worse off.
Good luck.

I am on metoprolol, as I said, and the only time I've gained weight is when I overeat and have unhealthy foods.

Is anyone else cutting their carbs to lose weight or maintain?
