Indications

Lasix is a loop diuretic medication used to treat edema associated with cardiac, renal, and hepatic failure as well as hypertension.

Furosemide is an anthranilic acid derivative that helps treat fluid retention and high blood pressure by preventing the reabsorption of chloride. The medication also helps salt pass into your urine to prevent your body from absorbing too much.

This medication helps treat edema in those with congestive heart failure, liver disease, or a kidney disorder may encounter. Lasix also helps reduce and balance high blood pressure.
