A 24-year-old female asked:

Is lasix (furosemide) more effective than spiro for edema? should lasix (furosemide) be considered for someone who didn't benefit much from spiro?

Diuretics : Furosemide (Lasix) and spironolactone are both diuretic drugs, but are quite different in the way they work. The best medicine for a particular patient depends on the medical indication, what other medicines are being used, and other individual factors. For a personal answer consider a consult here on HealthTap.
