Lasix Oral

Lasix® (furosemide) is an oral medication used as a diuretic ("water pill") for controlling high blood pressure and treating water retention caused by congestive heart failure, cirrhosis, and kidney failure (renal failure). It comes in tablet form and is typically taken by mouth once or twice a day.
 
The dose of Lasix your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on how you respond to the medicine, other existing medical conditions you may have, and other drugs you may be taking. Because this drug increases urination, it is best to take it in the morning to avoid getting up to use the bathroom throughout the night. If you take it multiple times per day, take the last dose of the day before 6 p.m.
 
The oral form of Lasix works by increasing the amount of salt and water the kidneys remove from the blood, which is then passed out through the urine. By increasing the amount of water removed from the blood, the medication causes a decrease in blood volume. Because of this effect, Lasix can lower blood pressure and help with water retention.
