Product Description

 

GENERIC NAME: (Furosemide)

BRAND NAME: Lasix


Description: 

Lasix (Furosemide) is a potent diuretic "Water pill" that is used to eliminate water and salt from the body. In the kidneys, salt (composed of sodium and chloride), water, and other small molecules normally are filtered out of the blood and into the tubules of the kidney. The filtered fluid ultimately becomes urine. Most of the sodium, chloride and water that is filtered out of the blood is reabsorbed into the blood before the filtered fluid becomes urine and is eliminated from the body. Furosemide works by blocking the absorption of sodium, chloride, and water from the filtered fluid in the kidney tubules, causing a profound increase in the output of urine. The onset of action after oral administration is within one hour, and the diuresis lasts about six to eight hours. The onset of action after injection is five minutes and the duration of diuresis is two hours. The diuretic effect of Lasix (Furosemide) can cause depletion of sodium, chloride, body water and other minerals. Therefore, careful medical supervision is necessary during treatment.

 

Dosage:

Lasix (Furosemide) dose uses for treatment of edema in adults is 20-80 mg as a single dose. The same dose or an increased dose may be administered six to eight hours later. Doses may be increased 20 to 40 mg every six to eight hours until the desired effect occurs.

 

Lasix (Furosemide should be stored at room temperature in a light resistant container.
