I am taking Lyesic for retaining fluid. I am on 1 tablet a day to get rid of any excess fluid, I have lost 80 pounds since first taking it in June 1, which was by injection twice a day in the hospital for two weeks, when I had left the hospital on June the 15, I had lost 55 pounds, and another 25 pounds at home. I feel a lot better of course have been carrying around a lot of excess fluid for a long time. Something had triggered my body to retain fluid suddenly, I was full right up to my neck before going in to the hospital. The only thing that I can attest the rapid fluid buildup is I was taking 2/3 of a cup of aloe vera juice before bed 3 weeks prior to excess fluid retention, would this have been the culprit to my dilema or is it something else?
