Lasix Diuretic Information

Lasix® (furosemide) is a prescription medication used for treating high blood pressure and fluid retention caused by various conditions (such as congestive heart failure, cirrhosis, and kidney failure). It is approved for both uses in adults, but only approved for treating fluid retention in children and infants.
As a type of diuretic, Lasix works by increasing the amount of salt and water the kidneys remove from the blood. This extra salt and water is then passed out through the urine. By increasing the amount of water removed from the blood, Lasix causes a decrease in blood volume. Because of this effect, the medication can lower blood pressure and help with water retention.
Although most people do not have any problems while taking this particular diuretic, Lasix is not suitable for everyone. For instance, you may not be able to safely use this medication if you have diabetes, kidney disease, or electrolyte problems. You also may not be able to take it if you are currently taking certain medications, including some vitamins, herbal supplements, and nonprescription medications.
Lasix comes in the form of tablets and is typically taken once or twice a day. Before you start taking the prescription diuretic Lasix, information on the medication's specific uses, effects, dosing guidelines, and warnings should be fully reviewed as they pertain to your particular situation.
