Table of contents:

Lasix (Furosemide) is a diuretic medication used to treat high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, and edema (fluid retention). It works by increasing the amount of urine your body produces, allowing your body to rid itself of extra fluid. Lasix also helps to reduce the amount of salt and water in the body, helping to lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Furosemide is a medication that can help reduce the amount of excess fluid in the body (edema) caused by conditions like heart failure, liver disease, and kidney disease. By reducing the amount of fluid, it can help to reduce symptoms such as difficulty breathing and swelling in the arms, legs, and abdomen.

Lasix is considered safe to take during pregnancy, but it should only be used if the potential benefits outweigh the risks. It is also used to treat fluid retention associated with some kidney and liver diseases.

Uses and Dosage

Lasix medication comes in tablet form and should be swallowed whole with water. It typically does not upset the stomach, so it can be taken with or without food. You can usually take Furosemide once a day in the morning, although sometimes it may be taken twice a day (once in the morning and once at lunchtime) or every other day. You do not need to take Furosemide at the same time every day, and you can occasionally take it at a different time if it is more convenient for you.

The usual dose of Furosemide to treat adults with high blood pressure is 40mg to 80mg per day, while the dose for those with heart failure or edema is 20mg to 120mg per day. For those over 65 years of age, the dose may be lower due to an increased risk of side effects. For babies and children, the dose is determined according to the child's weight or age.

Are there any long-term side effects?

Furosemide is safe to take for a long time, but you will have to see your doctor or nurse regularly for blood and urine tests. These make sure the chemicals in your blood are properly balanced.
