Hi! I am 34 weeks pregnant. Dr. told me to take lasix 40 mg daily with coconut water. I have swelling in my feet. But bp is normal-120/80. I have little problem in urinating but now it's much better. Is it ok to take this medicine? I have read on the internet that it should not be taken.

lasik push the bladder fr urine if u cn urine witout tht its gud.. do not tk it much.... try other house methods for urine

As per adviced by our expert Dr Nikhil Datar (Gynecologist) -
Amita well done. You are right. In pregnancy lasix is not preferred at all. Except in circumstances where benefits overweight risks. I do not use lasix to treat swelling.
