Hi all, I was in another thread and this was being discussed, but I didn't want to hijack the thread - so I am starting this one. I've never taken a pill to lose my water weight before. As I have stated before, my doctor prescribed Lasix to me to take every other day. I have not taken it at all because I'm nervous about side effects. I have read that others on this forum are taking something and are happy, just making sure to eat a banana or drink some orange juice.
My question is with Lasix being prescription only, is there something you can buy over the counter that does the same thing, but maybe just not as strong. Or is this a case where prescription is better and safer?
