Comment:
This drug came highly recommended. I was expecting frequent urination but this was a serious understatement. I was going every 30 minutes and drinking everything I could get my hands on. In less than a week I returned to my physician, had stat labs drawn and was admitted to the hospital for two days to flush the drug from my system. Potassium, and creatin were high and I was extremely weak.

Comment:
I was excited to start this med. but I urinate ever hour and at night ever 2 hours. On the plus my bs is lower and I lost several lbs the first week. That's the only reason I stayed on the med. is because of the weight loss. Seems to be some bad side effects in the long run CANCER, from what I read. I'm reading reviews on other meds. hopefully safer and more reviews.
