When people talk about hypertension and the medications they use for this nasty condition, they rarely talk about Lasix, or at least that is how it looks to me. Which is not a good thing, as the medication is just as efficient as some of the more popular ones and causes much less side effects. I know as I have been taking it for quite some time now.
My story is the story that resembles so many stories from the US. When I was younger, I used to take care of my body, not even knowing. I was active in high school and in college I was on our football team. No one thought about staying healthy back then, it was just something that you did without even knowing. However, as I got out of college and started working at my firm, things changed significantly.
My job is an office one. It is not extremely tedious and I got the chance to advance. However, with promotions came more responsibility and with more responsibility came much more stress. Also, when you concentrate on your job, you tend to neglect other aspects of your life. For one, you stop exercising as you simply do not find the time. Also, you start eating out more and more, and in most cases, eating out means eating junk food. I even started smoking when I was well over thirty, which has to be dumbest thing I have ever done.
And as you would expect, when I was about 43, maybe 44, I went for my regular yearly checkup, only to find that I have developed hypertension. It was not entirely out of the blue as I was not feeling my old self anymore. The biggest symptom that I have observed is that I got tired very easily. I noticed it when I would play with my kids in the garden. Daddy got short of breath very easily.
Luckily, my doctor is one of those doctors who tend to prescribe Lasix to their high blood pressure patients and she did so with me as well. As soon as I started taking Lasix, I felt my condition improving, having more energy and being able to play with the kids for hours outside, not getting winded. I also quit smoking and started taking care of my stress levels. All in all, I really managed to take care of my high blood pressure and this is why I would recommend Lasix to everyone
