Re: [FH] New to this group, been of CRF group
Have you tried checking the links for someone in your area?

When my girl developed pleural effusion, they added spironolactone to her
medications. She was already taking enalapril and lasix. It cleared it
right up. Other people have had good luck using rutin (500mg daily).
