    lasix and synthroid (bad combo?)

    Just had a question,has anyone used lasix ( rx fluid reduction pill) while they are on synthroid? I woke this morning feel like a water balloon! My face,hands,feet are so swollen! I'm a water drinker,average 6-8 20oz bottles per day.But the dr said that was great.I'm afraid to use any meds with synthroid,just started them Oct 25 (50 mcg)..any advise would help..

    Synthroid's website prescribing information does mention an interaction with furosemide [generic Lasix] and thiazide diuretics. The info is too technical for me to determine whether it's to blame for your swelling. Check with your pharmacist... he/she will know.
