could i use lemon water with my cozaar (losartan) as a diuretic?

Diuretic?: Lemon water does not take the place of a diuretic to remove edema fluid, so do not take it to get rid of edema.. Indeed, taking too much fluid is exactly what patients with edema should not do. Speak to your physician for more information.
