Question: Hi , are there any Lasik drugs that have a lesser affect on the kidneys?
Answered by Dr. Grzegorz Stanko 2 hours later

Thank you for the query.

I assume that you mean medicine with active ingredients Furosemidum/Ramipril. Depending of the stage of heart failure, it is possible to use beta-blockers medicines, which do not affect kidneys as much as furosemidum. However, heart failure is serious disease and every medicine change should be verified by your doctor.
You can ask him about Metoprolole or Bisoprolole usage.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.

My mum (79) demanded that she come off bisoprolol after taking for 3 years, as she felt she should not have been on it. The doctor agreed and she is now suffering with increased heart rate (120bpm) at times, but wont see a doctor. She suffers generally with her nerves and feels that going back on the bisoprolol again will calm her down. Is she just panicing or will the panic attack be because of coming off the bisoprolol? She also came off bumetanide at the same time, for the same reason (ie she felt she should never have been put on those tablets)
