Furosemide 40 mg and spironolactone 25 mg. Should I take both at once or take both the same day at different times or discontinue one? Did anyone can share your experience?
Hi. You do know you are actually in the dog community forum, do you? Is it you or your dog that is taking these diuretics? Aldactone (spironolactone) and Lasix (furosemide) are occasionally combined to lower blood pressure, maintain electrolyte levels, or reduce fluid retention. They are both commonly referred to as 'water pills'. There are no contraindications that say they should not be taken together. They are better taken in the morning, because they will increase the urgency to urinate, so if you (or your dog) take them in the evening, you (or your dog) will want to visit the loo during the night.
