Dear Ma'am, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns. Natural diuretics include green tea, parsley , hibiscus and various fruits and vegetables including watermelon, grapes, celery, asparagus, onions, garlic and bell peppers.. however their action can be mild and may not be effective if you are experiencing severe edema..
Unfourtanetly most diuretic medications require a prescribtion with the exception of Diurex water capsules , diurex aquagels and Aquaban (pamabran) .. However, diuretics need to be used with caution as overuse can lead to the side effect of dehydration and they can also cause the side of skin rashes, sleeping disorders, iron deficiency. Also
removal of excess water may reduce the essential vitamins and minerals from the body, resulting in a nutrient shortage. I hope you find this helpful

Thank you for your response. I do have a follow-up question, just in general. Do you have the ability to provide prescriptions? For example, the Ventolin is a prescription medication - would you be able to provide a prescription for that?

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ma'am, hello again..

Unfortunately prescriptions need to be in written format from a licenced doctor in your county..

I hope I could help you further..
