    What patients must know is that Furosimide has many ineffectiveness complaints, which is based on the generic manufacturer. Some are very good, like Mylan, while others, like Qualititest, are close to fake. I can only blame the FDA's complete lack of oversight on Generics for what has become life threatening for profit fraud.ð??¯

    This is the first time using this brand. I have used a different brand before that just a half pill would work immediately. This has not done a thing.

    Severe swelling in ankles and legs. Can NOT get rid of it an Lasik is not helping at all. Gets worse as the day goes by. Wondering if one of my medications is not causing the problems.

    I experienced severe edema and fluid leakage from my lower legs. My skin was breaking down and my calves were covered in blisters and ulcers.
