My husband has been prescribed Furosemide diuretic for fluid build up due to heart irregularities . He already has a low weight . This was discussed with the GP who said he was not over concerned about the weight , and any loss with the tablets . Blood pressure has dropped to 98/44 since the tablets . The NHS page says 90/60 is the lower limit . His weight has dropped , he is already under the dietician for disease malnourishment .
Not sure now how to tackle this . He needs the diuretics for fluid reduction and his heart , but the weight loss and blood pressures drop are to me an issue .
Talk about swings and roundabouts !
