What vitamin or vitamins help one urinate excess fluid, like lasix (furosemide) would?

Vit. B6 and Vit. C: Vitamin b6 has diuretic effects and rids your body of excess fluids, in the form of urination. Vitamin c is not stored in your body and can also have a diuretic effect. Be sure you check with your doctor. Avoid dehydration.
