I am taking 10 mg lasix twice daily and 20 meq potassium daily. Is this a good ratio?

Hello, Eugene! How are you?

Are these the doses your doctor has prescribed?

There's really no definitive rate that I can give you for how much potassium Lasix depletes from the body, it can vary from person to person.

Have you actually tested as being low in potassium?

The FDA lists the typical side effects of Lasix as possibly including nausea, dizziness, increased urination, hypotension and dehydration.

The potassium is known to irritate the stomach, so it should only be taken with food.
