36 weeks pregnant, What the effects of taking bumetanide during the last months of pregnancy?
I was diagnosed with preeclampsia, and my doctor prescribed bumetanide (Miccil). I took 1 mg a day for 22 days until I read it could be harmful, is it?
Asked by Vida Kirtdoll 6 months ago.
You need to continue taking it if your doctor said so. If you don't, you can suffer from seizures, high blood pressure, pre-term labor, and your baby could die. Answered by Kizzy Fehrman 6 months ago.
It can be harmful, but benefits outweigh the risks. It is a category C drug, meaning drugs should be given only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. Not teratogenic in animals but at high doses it is embryocidal, causing fetal growth retardation and delayed ossification. No adequate human data but reported association with cardiovascular defects in 1st trimester exposure. Diuretics in general suppress lactation thus should be used cautiously.

hi i am taking bumentanide.but it seems it is causing the water retention now instead for these reasons 1.i am having sign of dehydration such as weak muscles and light headedness (which goes away when i drink water) 2.lets say i don't drink anything but my ankles have a little fluid in them.so i take my bumetanide and hope fluid passes but nothing does.but soon as a go for a glass of water is flows like waterfalls.for example..i drink a 500 ml..i pee 500 ml straight away i am on 3 miligrams of bumetanide daily to help with my heart failure do you think the dose might be a tad bit high which is causing me to be drained of my minerals and fluids which in return causes me to retain water since my body needs to hold on to it?? what are your thoughts thanks alot Answered by Cheyenne Budniewski 6 months ago.
Your dose is a tad higher than usual (0.5 - 2 mg are the usual doses). The doc should be testing your kidney function while you are on this. He also should have given you directions about how much fluid you can take per day. The dizziness is a common side effect of the drug. Hopefully you are getting a potassium supplement, and are having your potassium levels checked regularly. This diuretic will lower your sodium and potassium levels, but the doc should give you directions on managing that. Potassium is a critical electrolyte needed daily for bodily functions. At any rate, what you are describing is not increased water retention, but may be mild dehydration. Check with the doc about reducing the dosage. I assume he tried less potent drugs first, such as furosemide? Bumetanide is a very powerful diuretic. Best wishes. Answered by Jay Goodpasture 6 months ago.
There is a product called cell-u-loss at the site below which is great for water retention. I have never had any side effects with this product but it is great for getting the water off. Answered by Gregoria Stevenson 6 months ago.

Could be Bumetanide, 2mg strength. It is a loop diuretic, similar to lasix. But, as previously mentioned, if it's not yours, just throw it away. Answered by Kala Lienke 6 months ago.
Throw it in the trash. Do not put it down the toilet as all drugs disposed of this way end up in our water supply. I recently read about contamination of water sources by flushing drugs and chemicals and the resulting problem is scary. Answered by Pierre Lasselle 6 months ago.

My mother is taking metolazone, along with bumetanide. This may not be unusual, but through research, I've found that this can cause a serious decrease in potassium and magnesium levels. My mother is also diabetic. She has been complaining of very blurred vision. Could this be a result of the combined diuretics or the side effects of her blood sugar? Her physician seems to have difficulty treating her, so any information would be GREATLY appreciated. Answered by Angelita Strevels 6 months ago.
Some side effects are: Diuretics, sometimes called water pills, help rid your body of sodium and water. They work by making your kidneys excrete more sodium in urine. The sodium, in turn, takes water with it from your blood. That decreases the amount of fluid flowing through your blood vessels, which reduces pressure on the walls of your arteries. Answered by Christeen Digirolomo 6 months ago.
I take a diuretic and it has caused no problems with vision. My potassium level was a bit low but I just eat a banana everyday and things are fine. Blurred vision is more likely caused by glaucoma. I'd get her eye pressure checked by an optometrist. Answered by Leroy Aronov 6 months ago.

Diuretic not having much effect?
so i took one of my diuretic pill( bumetanide 1mg) just before i went to sleep .there i water in my ankles but i didn't pass much urine. what does that mean? is my body dehydrated and trying to hold on to water? i also have heart failure
Asked by Trinh Leinberger 6 months ago.
Go see a doctor or nurse at a clinic. Alternatively have you checked the website web MD? Answered by Luanna Rettinger 6 months ago.
You're right on the money, Ken. Diuretics do no good except insure that you keep good relationships going with your doctor. The water retention in your ankles (edema) happened because your body sensed a drought condition (dehydration) and compensated for it by storing extra salt - which retains water. Drop the diuretic, drink lots of water and exercise - you need to flush out the extra salt. Make sure you lay off the salt for a couple of days. BTW - if you're drinking soft drinks, coffee or any other alternative to water, those are contributing to the problem because they act like a diuretic. Heart failure is definitely caused by dehydration. Click on the link below to learn about the correlation between dehydration and disease. Click on the second link to learn how to treat it.
