Furosemide was first developed in the early 1960s, and later gained acceptance as an effective treatment to edema and high blood pressure. More importantly, it gained a huge following for its ability to shed excessive water weight in a very short amount of time.
This has two main applications. The first is for bodybuilders using anabolic steroids that are high in estrogen, resulting in a lot of water retention that comes along with the added muscle bulk. Lasix helps rid their bodies of water, creating a more defined look for muscles. The other application is for athletes that compete in weight classes. Lasix can help an athlete remove weight before a weigh-in, and then gain it right back after ceasing use.
If you are looking for a way to drop down in your weight class, or simply need to remove the water retention from a steroid cycle, it’s hard to find a better ally than Lasix.
