Lasix Substitute

Lasix® (furosemide) is a prescription drug used to treat high blood pressure and fluid retention. However, if you experience bothersome side effects or if the medication is not adequately controlling your symptoms, several substitutes for Lasix are available.
 
Some of these Lasix substitutes for controlling high blood pressure include:
 
  • Losing weight
  • Limiting your salt intake
  • Becoming more physically active
  • Drinking less alcohol
  • Changing your diet (including more fruits and vegetables)
  • Taking other medications.
     
For treating fluid retention, some alternatives to Lasix can include:
 
  • Limiting your salt and fluid intake
  • Wearing support stockings to reduce fluid retention in the legs
  • Becoming more active (avoiding sitting or standing in the same position for too long)
  • Taking other diuretic medications.
     
There are several Lasix substitutes, including other medications or lifestyle changes. If this medicine is not working for you or if it is causing unwanted side effects, ask your healthcare provider about trying something other than Lasix.
