Legs and abdomen: Many many individuals have "dependent edema", wherein fluid collects in "dependent" or gravity sensitive places in the body. In these instances venous return to the heart may be permanently impaired and hence fluid collection can occur. Most commonly found in the legs, in nursing home patients it may collect in the hips or even an arm. ...Read more

Low blood pressure: Faintness would likely be from dehydration from taking a strong diuretic in addition to multiple other blood pressure lowering medications. Listen to your body and consider using life style change and frequent movement through the day to manage stress skillfully . Stress is a potent cause of high bp.

Can amphetamines be found after heavy diuresis with meds Lasix (furosemide) and bumex and 24~48 hours since supposed use?

Can amphetamines be found after heavy diuresis with meds Lasix (furosemide) and bumex  and 24~48 hours since supposed use?

Probably: I don't know the answer and it would depend to some extent on exactly which amphetamines and what dose was taken but i suspect they can be measured at 48 hours. I don't think the diuretics are a factor since they don't selectively remove amphetamines which remain in the serum and tissures until metabolized fully. Methamphetamine has a 5 hr half life and is surely measurable at 24 hours. ...Read more
