My daughter wants me to buy her Diurex water pills to loose a quick 5 lbs. by this weekend. My question is: Do they really work that fast?

The first question you should ask yourself is this one: can losing 5lbs by this weekend be healthy? :/

She's very healthy and fit...she is needing to loose a few pounds to make weigh-in for her power lifting meet. I just want to be sure they will work before I have her take some pills.

From a mother who suffers from a eating disorder....ARE YOU NUTS? Do not let your daughter take water pills to lose weight. The first question you should be asking yourself why is it important to sacrafice her heatlh for a few lbs? Let her weigh in what she weighs as is and reinforce that she's fine exactly as she is...

Danger!!! Besides, it's just water weight, not real fat loss. It's just a number. If she needs to make a weigh in, she should do what many athletes do and work out in a sweat suit and sit in a sauna Smile

Just be careful and remember that taking fluid pills can cause a drop in blood pressure and possibly throw the electrolites off causing dizziness and cramping of the muscles. Just my thoughts on the matter...

How old is your daughter if she needs you to buy them for her??

Weight loss pills of any kind are DANGEROUS!!

I have them, I tried them for water retention relief for my period. My breasts are so swollen and very sore, I am in a lot of pain. These pills did not make me lose any excess water ( what they the experts claim is causing my breasts to be so sore). In short, they do not work, or at least for me.

Go back and read this post and tell me if you think maybe READING your own post sounds a little crazy.

If anything, tell her to drink MORE water.

If you like your daughter's kidneys working the way they do now, I would not suggest buying these for her.

Nuts to do so. Though even grade school and Jr high wrestling competitions encourage this type of insanity. Why my daughter won't let her boys wrestle.

Sorry Irish, I find it a bit odd that you've just joined today, appear to have no weight to gain or lose and make only this comment. As always, wholefoodnut nails it. Might (or might NOT) be safe -- but nuts to do. More complete information as far as interactions and possible side effects can be found on drugs.com and search the drug name.

I took them before and not only did I constantly go to the bathroom, but it gave me horrible foot and leg cramps, I wouldn't recommend them

With the incidences of kids dying playing sports, I certainly would NOT give any of the kids in my family diuretics. They are all in sports and are encouraged to drink water during competition.

Diuretic's are good for conditions like COPD when a person's body is drowning in their own fluid build up. In anyone they can cause a depletion in essential nutrients. queeshia, your leg crams may of been caused by the loss of vitamin c and magnesium due to the unnatural fluid loss.
