Re: [FH] Diagnosed- Unclassified Cardiomyopathy, Lasix Dosage? Fluid in Legs & Abdomen.
- Simba was taking 12.5 lasix twice a day along with
many other meds including a baby aspirin (81mgs) every
3 1/2 days. He had restrictive cardiomyopathy. We
started with a lower dose of lasix and worked up to
this one within a couple months.
