Lasix (furosemide) is a loop diuretic (water pill) that prevents your body from absorbing too much salt. This allows the salt to instead be passed in your urine.
Lasix is used by bodybuilders shortly before competitions, and sometimes up to two days beforehand, to excrete excessive water so that they appear hard, defined, and have a ripped physique on stage.
Furosemide should only be used the last 4-7 days leading up to a contest, with around 20 mg a day, 40 mg at the very most.
Possible side effects:
- Circulatory Disturbances
A potassium supplement (not overdosed) is important to keep on hand. Lasix should ONLY be used by the most experienced bodybuilders.
