Been a little dehydrated.So figured water is better than Tea or Coffee.

So I've been drinking Flavored Carbonated Water. :shrug: But it don't seem to be helping.

Is Carbonated different from Tap Water?

I don't know about the carbonated water. But carbonated drinks will leach calcium from your bones. The Dr. told me to stay away from carbonated drink because I have osteoporosis.

It should work just as good but if your taking water pills they may be to strong and causing you to loose to much fluid.

That would be the colas .....they have phosphoric acid in them. Some sodas don't have that. You'll find it on the labels.

Thanks PinkBat, that's good to know. I do miss them and would like to have one once in a while.

The water pill may be to strong and taking to much water out of your system.
Maybe you could ask your doctor what he or she thinks if you are loosing to much water.

Doctor may have to lower the Mil Grams on the pills a little.
