sideeffects ## As with many diuretics, Furosemide can cause dehydration and electrolyte imbalance, including loss of potassium, calcium, sodium, and magnesium. It is especially important to prevent potassium loss. Excessive use of Furosemide will most likely lead to a metabolic alkalosis due to hypochloremia and hypokalemia.

It's been two days since you posted this, so I'm guessing that you're over any symptoms that the drug may have caused you. 80mg of furosemide is a high dose, but if you made it threw the day ok then I personally wouldn't stay worried. If for some reason you still notice any effects from it, I would highly recommend that you go to your doctor and let him know what happened. He o... ...

stopping furosemide

Hi, I'm from the UK. My 78yr old mum has been prescribed 120mg furosemide daily for heart failure, but the side effects are dreadful and two days ago she decided to stop taking them. She has been on them for 9 months and I don't think it is wise for her to stop them suddenly. Is she putting herself at risk by doing this? Thank you ## Hello, Cate! How is your mum doing? Yes, she could certainly be putting herself at risk. Congestive heart failure is caused by high blood pressure, which causes the body to retain too much fluid. The intent of this medication is to help remove that excess fluid, to reduce the strain on her heart, so it can function better and more easily, thus, if she stops taking it suddenly, she could experience elevated blood pressure, elevated heart rate and, go... ...

No, it isn't likely that the medication would still be causing it, if you've been off of it for 3 weeks, now. The FDA classifies it as a diuretic and lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain and dehydration.
