When lasix doesn't work for fluid retention

That is most unusual, talk to a doctor.  They might increase your lasix dosage or frequency.   But the proper amount of lasix is critically important and has to be adjusted from time to time, depending on observing how much fluid you are retaining (the skin pinch is a common testing technique).

If you have CHF or kidney function problems, use of lasix and balancing the correct amount and changing dosage frequently can be a delicate process needing close watching.   Too much lasix can make you dehydrated and that can be bad.  If you do have CHF or kidney problems you should be reviewing your lasix use with the cardiologist (heart) or the kidney specialist (a nephrologist).

Lasix is very powerful and effective at getting fluid out of the body when you are "retaining" too much water.

I am happy that you found Lasix to be so successful for you. You should remember that it must be carefully monitored so I would strongly suggest that you make no change to the dosage without your physician's aproval.

If you were NOT on the clock - then it cannot be termed 'work related.' If you are a 'salaried' employee rather than an hourly wage employee - that might be another story. Your Company's Liability Insurance would kick in.
