What is Bumex?

Filed under: Uncategorized — @ 11:17 am

Bumex is used to decrease the amount of excess salt and water in your body by increasing the output of urine. It is prescribed for treatment of edema, or fluid retention, associated with congestive heart failure and liver or kidney disease. It is also occasionally prescribed, along with other drugs, to treat high blood pressure. Bumex is a powerful drug and should not be taken in larger amounts, as it can severely decrease the levels of water and minerals, especially potassium.

How should you take Bumex?

It should be taken in the morning after breakfast as it may increase the frequency of urination and may cause loss of sleep.
