Lasix (Furosemide) Medication Information

The prescription medication Lasix® (furosemide) is commonly used for controlling high blood pressure and treating water retention caused by various conditions, including congestive heart failure, cirrhosis, and kidney failure (renal failure). It belongs to a class of drugs called diuretics, which work by increasing the amount of salt and water removed from the blood.
Lasix comes as a tablet that is typically taken by mouth once or twice a day. Because the medication increases urination, it is best to take it in the morning to avoid needing to get up to use the bathroom throughout the night. If you take it multiple times per day, it is best to take your last dose of the day before 6 p.m., unless you are instructed otherwise.
If you still have questions about Lasix after reading this article (and our other articles on this topic), talk to your healthcare provider for more information. He or she knows your situation best.
