In brief: Why is there fluid?
The choice of therapy depends on accurate diagnosis.
Plus, some therapies provide short term relief and others change the underlying physiologic processes. For one of the most common causes of fluid in the lungs, congestive heart "failure", medications called diuretics are prescribed. When your doc chooses which diuretic to use, it depends upon many other factors including heart & kidney function.
