Yes, for now I plan on continuing the diuretic. As to whether or not it's safe in the long run, I've read conflicting things. Basically though, it should be safe as long as you take it as directed. A routine blood test would probably show if there are any ill effects. Regarding my symptons, fullness was never really a problem for me. It was only something I occasionally had. In the past couple of weeks though, my hearing has improved and I no longer have hearing distortion. I still have tinnitus but the volume is greatly reduced, but I've suffered from low-level tinnitus for many years which at this point I'm guessing is permanent.
