Carlismine...you are thinking of furosemide, which is the generic for Lasix. I take both Lasix and Aldactone. Lasix is a stronger diuretic than Aldactone, but the Aldactone prevents the loss of potassium that the use of Lasix alone can cause. Was he also prescribed potassium tablets to go with the Lasix? If not, be sure to watch his potassium levels.
DeeDee, we will anxiously be awaiting results of the biopsy and praying for good news.
