Description

Furosemide is commonly used in the treatment of pulmonary edema (fluid in the lungs) and heart failure. It may also be used in the treatment of some types of electrolyte imbalance, including high potassium and high calcium levels.

What is Furosemide?

It is an effective diuretic possessing a wide therapeutic range. Pharmacologically it promotes the rapid removal of abnormally retained extracellular fluids. The rationale for the efficacious use of diuretic therapy is determined by the clinical pathology producing the edema. Salix is indicated for the treatment of edema, (pulmonary congestion, ascites) associated with cardiac insufficiency and acute noninflammatory tissue edema.
