its to prevent the mother and her baby from getting infections... some patients might go into labor and give birth in an unsterile environment, which can infect the baby and …the mother later on... some patients might think they dont need it, but still its recommended to take it just to be safe. taking it wont cause harm, other than the needle pain... if you are pregnant, consult your health care provider about this..
If the question is "can you give two different diuretics at the same time?" than the answer is yes.
Using loop diuretics (such as furosemide) and aminoglycoside antibiotics (such as gentamicin, tobramycin) together can increase the risk of damage to the inner ear leading to …hearing loss. .

A 30 April - 1 May 1960 DÃ¼sseldorf congress of neurologists warned of the dangers of thalidomide. The regulators who had allowed thalidomide in the first place did nothing.… Thalidomide was eventually taken from the market on 27 November 1961, by its maker, Chemie GrÃ¼nenthal GmbH, and thus not by the regulators who had allowed it in the first place. http://www.wdr.de/themen/gesundheit/pharmazie/contergan/chronik.jhtml?rubrikenstyle=contergan Thalidomide thus continued to be given to pregnant women after 1 May 1960. So yes, thalidomide was tested before given to pregnant women (after 1 May 1960). And I did not yet examine the question whether thalidomide had been tested before being marketed. Thalidomide was definitely known in the year 1938 and [its] defects were noted in Phoenix, AZ (USA) in a medical journal that year. It was known as a cure for [Hansen]'s Disease and made by [Richardson]-Merrill Co. in [Cincinnati], OH (USA). I don't know what action was taken, but a young female doctor named Frances Oldham Kersey (or Kelsey) recognized its dangers. Theodore, Princeton, WV/USA (reaction under From The Times April 4, 2008 Thalidomide: 50 years on victims unite to seek more compensation Nigel Hawkes, Health Editor http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/health/article3671815.ece Kelsey was the lady who in 1960 only joined the USA Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Once there, she further delayed thalidomide's approval (thalidomide was marketed since 1957) and was given a Presidential award by USA president Kennedy for that delay. Wikipedia says that Kelsey is credited SINCE NINETEEN THIRTY-EIGHT with her interest in teratogens - that is, drugs that cause congenital malformations, that 1938 was the date of the creation of the FDA, and that Kelsey managed to be appointed there in 1960 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frances_Oldham_Kelsey Thalidomide was marketed since 1957. Kelsey was only appointed in the FDA in 1960. How can she get (all) the credit for having 'saved' the USA from it? http://bphouse.com/honest_money/human-testing/ GrÃ¼nenthal apparently purchased the trade name of the drug - Contergan - and therefore probably the substance itself, from a French firm, RhÃ´ne-Poulenc, which was under Nazi control during the war years. (From The Sunday Times February 8, 2009 Thalidomide 'was created by the Nazis' http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life_and_style/health/article5683577.ece Documents have emerged which suggest that scientists led by a British professor had discovered a compound with an almost identical chemical formula to thalidomide in 1949.

Yes, Demerol can be used with a loop diuretic
Only indirectly. If too much of a loop diuretic (e.g. furosemide) is taken, and the individual becomes severely dehydrated, as a result, then it is possible for a metabolic en…cephalopathy to ensue, thus causing confusion, mumbled or slurred speech, and more.
I Got tested the day they confirmed my pregnancy and I was about 6 or 7weeks when I had it confirmed! I had my positive show up on April 3rd didn't get in to the ob until May… 16th! so probley between them times or sooner depends on how fast you get into the ob office!

In general, pregnant women should not use diuretics unless a physician recommends their use
Bumetanide (Bumex) and furosemide (Lasix)
These drugs are given to prevent excess water retention in patients with associated right heart failure
The reason for not giving this particular vaccine during pregnancy is the risk of transmitting measles to the unborn child.
Can you use loop diuretics instead of thiazide diuretics in nephrogenic diabetes inspidius what will happen?
In most cases it has been noted that loop diuretics worsen thecondition of the kidney in diabetes insip.
Loop diuretics act by competing for the chloride site on the Na-K-2Cl cotransporter. Inhibiting sodium chloride reabsorption also inhibits the backleak of potassium and the ge…neration of the lumen-positive potential. As a result, calcium excretion rises.
