What is Lasix?
The active ingredient of Lasix is furosemide. It is a loop diuretic that reduces the amount of salt absorbed by the body, which allows the salt to be excreted by the urine. This substantially increases the volume of urine and is used to treat fluid retention in people with kidney disorders, liver disease, or congestive heart failure. This medicine can also be used to quickly normalize high blood pressure.

What are the indications for using Lasix?
Lasix is usually used to treat the following conditions:

  • Edema – is a condition when not enough water is being excreted by the body. This can be caused by renal disease (nephrotic syndrome), liver disease (cirrhosis), or by congestive heart failure. Lasix is among the most powerful agents with diuretic effect.
  • Hypertension – is a condition when the average blood pressure is over 140/90mmHg. Lasix can either be used alone, or it can be combined with other antihypertensive agents.

What is the dosage of Lasix?
The initial dosage of Lasix ranges from 20 to 80 mg, which should be given as a single dose. This is usually followed by a prompt increase in diuresis. If necessary, the same dose can be given to the patient after 6 to 8 hours. The necessary dose of Lasix will vary depending on the patient, and should be given once or twice per day. Severe edematous states may demand for the dose to be carefully raised to 600 mg per day.

What are the contraindications for using Lasix?
The only patients who shouldn’t take Lasix are those with allergy to furosemide and those with anuria (a state during which no urine is produced by the kidneys).
