I am a 49 year old woman . I am currently drinking 1 40mg Lasix and 1 600mg Plenish K per day for my water retention . As from next year I won’t be on a medical aid and I cannot afford not to take my water retention tablets . I drink average 2 liters of water per day . When I get up in the mornings my face ( eyes , lips , cheeks ), hands and ankles are very swollen . If the water retention is really bad , I take 2 Lasix tablets with 2 Plenish K tablets per day . I take the tablets early in the mornings because then it seems to work faster and better . I also take 1 20mg Pur-Bloka per day . My problems started in 2009 when I went to hospital with bronchitis that turned into pneumonia . My Dr then told me that the muscle around my heart was damaged and that my heart has to work harder to pump the blood through my body . Because it was damaged it worked slower and that was the cause of my water retention . In 2001 I had a hysterectomy and since then I’ve been taking my 1 2mg Estrofem per day .Which Vital tablets can I take that will do the same as the Lasix ? The Plenish K I have to take to balance out to salt content in my body .
