    Have only taken for 2 days. I have type 2 diabetes and all of a sudden my blood sugar was 598 without other cause. I read here that it could rarely affect ones blood sugar. It has never been that high. Calling the Doc if it doesn't straighten out.

    Put on torsemide following aorta valve repair surgery for fluid retention and it caused my createnine blood level to increase. Dr. took me off after a week, will repeat blood work in one week to see if level returns to acceptable range. Felt tired the week I was on it and my urine output wasn't what I thought it would be.

    I have tired many edema medications. This is by far the best the Dr has put me on. In just 3 days my ankles and feet are back to normal and my stomach belly has decreased considerably. I lost 12 lbs of fluid in 3 days. Now im back on hydroclorothiazide to help maintain the edema.
