I have a recommendation, @tlovesherdad2020, but it's not for any specific medication or therapy, which would be going beyond what Mayo Connect members should be offering. I'm prompted by multiple mentions of Lasix, a drug that I have some sad experience with. Suffice it to say that Lasix put me in danger by driving potassium out of my system along with excess water. It took a nephrologist and an endocrinologist two months to fix the problem. My recommendation is this: Consider taking Lasix only if the medical team you trust prescribes it and offers close scrutiny of the results from the first minute until your therapy carries you to a stable condition. Since Torsemide is a "loop diuretic" like Lasix, you may wish to have a detailed discussion with your doctors about managing treatment with that drug as well. Martin

I don't think any of us was prescribing a medication but we were querying via example to learn more.
