User Comments:

For High Blood Pressure: “I am a Type 2 diabetic with high blood pressure. I was hospitalized with heart failure due to too much liquid in my system. After leaving the hospital in June I was on lasix. Then the doctor changed me from lasix to torsemide at the end of June. With change in medications I had the following issues.40 mg twice a day: Extreme HeadachesVery high blood sugar for me (235-275)Low blood pressure (sometimes 90/60)Dehydration20 mg twice a day:Lowered Blood Pressure (almost too much)Blood sugar is in the 190-220 range and I can’t get it to a lower number. Originally at 110-125.LethargicDizzinessI keep getting told the medication is not really responsible for the blood sugar rising like it has. Too much of a coincidence for me.”

For Edema: “I find that torsemide works very well for me. I don’t take it every day, more like every third or fourth day. The only down side is that if I take it every day I get very painful cramps in my thighs. Now I take Calcium-Magnesium and that seems to reduce the incidense of cramping. If one does happen I also take a tablespoon of mustard, recommended by Dr. Oz on tv, which has turmeric in it and that helps very much also.Torsemide helps greatly with reducing any edema that I have in my ankles, feet and legs. Other than the occasional cramping, I experience no other side effects and I will continue taking this drug.”

Demadex (torsemide) for Edema: “Torsemide has really been effective in reducing the edema that I suffer from Pulmonary Hypertension. IT really gets out the extra fluid without any harsh side effects. I used to take LAsix (furosemide) and I had to be taken off it after I suffered painful red nodules all up and down my legs. Furosemide was far more harsh than the Demadex and I’m glad my doctor switched me to it.”
