Treating oedema Furosemide Lasix

Uses
Lasix (Furosemide) is a type of medicine called a loop diuretic or water pill which is used to treat oedema (another name for fluid retention) in patients affected by congestive heart failure, or diseases affecting the liver or the kidneys. It may sometimes be prescribed as a high blood pressure treatment, and patients with hypercalcaemia (high calcium levels) have also been treated with this medicine.

This drug works by triggering the creation of more urine by the body, thereby allowing the body to rid itself of any unnecessary salt and water. The main ingredient in this medicine is sometimes referred to as frusemide.

Dosage and Administration
Lasix (Furosemide) tablets need to be administered in accordance with the dosage guidelines given by the prescribing doctor. Adults treating congestive heart failure are sometimes told to take it once per day (with the dosage taken in the morning) or else twice per day (one dose in the morning and another in the evening). However, the exact amount of medication required can be different, and all patients must visit their doctor before starting treatment and only take the prescribed amount.

Side effects
Taking Lasix (Furosemide) might cause side effects, such as:

  • Vomiting
  • Blurry vision
  • Feeling thirsty
  • Spinning sensation
  • Cramps affecting the muscles

Tell your doctor about any side effects you notice during treatment. In some cases, serious side effects are possible. You must immediately seek medical attention if you notice hearing problems, fever, a sore throat, weight changes, paleness of the skin or any other serious side effects.

Precautions
Taking this medication can cause some patients to experience skin which is sensitive to the sun. You are advised to wear proper protective clothes and to apply sunscreen if you are going to be exposed to the sun.

If you become severely thirsty, weak or drowsy, see a doctor straight away, as the amount of fluids and salts that are in your body may need to be tested.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Lasix (Furosemide) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you suffer from any allergies.
  • If you suffer from any other health conditions or illnesses.
  • If you are using any other medicine (including all non-prescription).
  • If you are using any supplements, vitamins, or herbal products of any kind.
