ridaq and furosemide

My mother will be 90 years old in August 2019. She was prescribed Furosemide 40mg, 2 tablets in the morning and 1 tablet at 2pm. (prescribed after cardiac failure) She also drinks 1x Ridaq 12.5mg each morning after breakfast. Other medication is Isosorbide Dinitrate 10, 1 tablet 3x per day. She drinks +- 1.5lt water pd. She's complaining of having to get to the toilet 4/5x during night +- once every 30-45 during the day. Could the Furosemide and Ridaq dosages too much for her. Thank you ## That is a normal side effect of both Furosemide and the Hydrochlorothiazide in the Ridaq, they are both intended to remove excess fluid from her body to help prevent future congestive heart failure, they can also help to lower high blood pressure. She should make sure her doctor is aware of how of...

What Is Small Round yellow Pill M2?

pale yellow small round pill with M2 on one side ## Based on the description provided, the closest match I could find is identified as Furosemide 20 mg; which has M2 imprinted on one side and blank on the other. The only difference is that this particular pill is "off-white" and not yellow. I noticed however that you described it as a "pale" yellow, so I can only speculate that this could still be a viable match. Manufacturer: Mylan Pharmaceuticals Inc. National Drug Code (NDC): 00378-0208 For verification, you can also compare the size of your pill to this one, which happens to be 6.00 mm You can learn more about this drug on the page for Furosemide Details I hope this helps! ## What is a yellow pill with M2 on one side and a M on the other side?
