diuretics and shiftwork

  1. I'm sure there must be many who have this problem. What do you do about your own medication times when you change shifts from nights to days? Is it hard on your body to change the times that you take your diuretic so that you're not constantly waking up to go to the bathroom when you're trying to sleep? How do you manage this problem?

    Wow that would be very hard. I have no words of wisdom for you. I would like to see if other nurses have good solutions who have lived this problem.

    I take my pills before work, no matter if it's 5AM or 5 PM so that I'm AWAKE when that 40mg of Lasix kicks in.
