Can you take Lasix (furosemide) for weight loss?

Lasix (furosemide) is a potent diuretic which, if given in excessive amounts, can lead to a profound diuresis with water and electrolyte depletion. Weight loss can occur when taking Lasix (furosemide) due to fluid loss. Therefore, careful medical supervision is required and dose and dose schedule must be adjusted to the individual patient's needs.
