My wife has fluid buildup from her heart not beating right, They put her on 80 MG. of lasix twice a day, is this a little too much?

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.
