I take this along with Bumetanide and it works fantastic! Metolazone could get water out of a rock. I do however have much lower potassium from taking this, so if you are thinking of taking it make sure to to have your Dr. check your levels regularly, I take 800MG of an OTC Potassium Chloride (make sure it's Potassium chloride as other types of potassium will not be enough to make a difference no ...

Metolazone is the absolute worst drug. I have to take it for fluid buildup 1 - 2 a month. When I do take it, my potassium levels go critically low and I end up with acute kidney failure. However, I don't have any other choice because the Torsemide that I take daily has all but stopped working. This stuff is the devil. If you can avoid it, you would be better off to do so.

My cardiologist prescribed me this water pill due to edema on both upper and lower extremities and fluid accumulation in my abdomen, It works fast and after 5 days I had hypokalemia.

I have used Metolazone for years, and it has worked better than any water pill out there. But the longer you are on it the less effective it is. It did take a long time but now the swelling is back in my abdomen and ankles. I take this for heart issues, and if the dose is doubled, the water gain goes up, and postassium goes down
