So Dr. Miller says that I have to take stuff with extra potassium when on Lasix - 40 mg once a day. I am supposed to take it in the morning....but between being awake until 3 am.....moving very slowly....and having to run several errands....it was 3 pm before I took it.
He suggested tomato juice....you know I have no poker face. He said "What about Gatorade?" Well that sounded ok. but guess what? Gatorade had 30 mg of potassium per serving...and tomato juice has 900 mg. Seriously, 900. I read all the labels. Smart water. V-8 Splash. V-8 Infusion. All the sports drinks and enhanced waters.
So I guess I am stuck drinking the stupid tomato juice. With my bananas, which work just as well when topped with ice cream. And no....I don't know how those M&Ms got there.
