An Overview of Lasix Side EffectsAs with any medicine, side effects can occur with Lasix® (furosemide). However, not everyone who takes the drug will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can be easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Lasix. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Lasix side effects with you.)
