Whether you're dealing with menstrual bloat, puffiness, or water weight, Diurex can help relieve these discomforts by encouraging urination to drop excess fluid. Diurex is available in a variety of formulations to suit your lifestyle, including several options without caffeine.
The main benefit of this medication is its ability to reduce or eliminate bloating caused by excess fluid retention, particularly in the pre-menstrual and menstrual periods. Bloating can cause fatigue and discomfort, especially in the lower abdomen area. This is due to the fact that about 60% of our bodyweight is made up of water. A diuretic helps remove this water weight, and in the process relieves these symptoms such as bloating, puffiness, and water weight gain.
This medication can also help prevent high blood pressure when used as directed. However, it is important to regularly see a doctor while taking these pills because the diuretic action can change your kidney strength and blood potassium levels. This can be dangerous. It is important to monitor your blood pressure while on these medications and drink plenty of fluids, especially potassium-rich foods such as bananas.
These drugs, sometimes called water pills, are often prescribed for high blood pressure because they can decrease the amount of sodium (salt) that is retained in the body by causing the kidneys to release more urine. They are typically taken one pill per day or as prescribed by a doctor. It is recommended that you start these tablets 5 or 6 days before your expected menstrual period and continue until the desired relief is obtained or your period ends. Drink a minimum of 6 to 8 glasses of water each day while taking this medication.
