In brief: None

You may want to find a clinic that can see you.
Many CHF meds are available at WalMart as part of their $4/month, $10/3 months program. I have many patients on generic meds doing well. Please find a clinic you can go to. Heart failure can be treated very well these days.

In brief: Unfortunately

Unfortunately there are no water pills (also known as diuretics) that are available over the counter. There are some over-the-counter (otc) pills that are sold as menstrual side effect aids and claim to reduce bloating that list caffeine or pyrilamine as diurectics.
These may make one urinate, but not in the way that diurectics for heart failure do. Do not take these products in any dose ever if you have chf. While CHF is not truly cureable, it can be very successfully treated and sometimes permanently improved with medications that are mostly generic and inexpensive. If you do not have money, you more than likely qualify for medicaid. I encourage you to try to access this program. There are two office for medicaid services in your area, depending on the zip code in which you live: south street office, st. Joseph county dfr 100 w.
