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
Is it safe to take lisinopril 40 mg twice daily, metoprolol tartrate 25 mg once daily, and bumetanide 1 mg once daily safe. I'm also hep c.?
Lasix is needed for CHF/CKD fluid overload but causing burning during urination. Should UTI be suspected (finished antibiotic course). Should low dose antibiotic be considered if inflammation/URI is recurring? Will bumex work better in this case?
Stop taking it: If it is an extreme necessity, and there are no alternatives, and you don't know whether this an allergic reaction or an adverse drug reaction (side effect), see an allergist/immunologist for evaluation and possible desensitization to the said drug for treatment if a particular disease episode, good luck ...Read more
