I don't use lasix but from what I've read (the experience of others) doctors change lasix doses as needed. This may be a lot to begin with, get the fluid out of there. Then when she's more stable the doc will probably lower the dose. I assume she has a follow up appointment soon?
over a long period it would be too much. did he advise her to start a low sodium diet and restrict fluid intake? Keep an eye on her for any possible dehydration. You can google a search for that. I feel for her, the constant potty trips are annoying.
