Just don't take before a long car ride or activity where you can't stop frequently. You will have to take lots of trips to the bathroom. I just wait till I'm at my destination.

My husband was prescribed Bumex 8 weeks ago to address edema. After 6 days on this drug he began having convulsive-like tremors at night. These went on all night and neither of us got any sleep for several nights. We experimented by having him skip the drug one morning. No shakes that night. He tried the drug again the next morning. Tremors that night, and so on. He has not taken it for seven days now and finally has had 2 good nights in a row. The cardiologist has switched him to another diuretic, but we are waiting a couple more days to start it.
