Depends: Three diuretics daily, especially full dosage of prescription ones, is a potent dose and is usually reserved for patients with high grade fluid retention states seen in congestive heart failure or liver disease for example. Side effects must be watched for, but your prescribing physician who knows your condition best, is also best qualified to advise you about this matter.
