I've been on Bumex for a full month. I have not lost any water weight. The swelling in my feet was so bad I was afraid to touch them lest they burst. The swelling has gone down a lot, but not completely. I was taking 1 mg twice a day for 2 weeks, then 2 mg twice a day for two weeks, and beginning today, I'm on 2 mg three times a day.

Comment:
Started taking this drug on Friday May 31st, 1 mg tablet. And today June 2nd have already lost 5 pounds of water weight. Feel really good and tightness in legs is getting better. Was taking lasic and it did not work at all except to cause bad leg cramps. Really pleased with this drug.
