OverviewLASIX TAB 40MG is an Over-the-counter (OTC) drug.
LASIX TAB 40MG is composed of: FUROSEMIDE (40 MG)
Furosemide is a potent loop diuretic (water pill) that prevents your body from absorbing too much salt, allowing the salt to instead be passed in your urine. Furosemide is also used on its own or together with other drugs to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Furosemide treats fluid retention (edema) in people with congestive heart failure, liver disease, or a kidney disorder such as nephrotic syndrome. This can lessen symptoms such as shortness of breath and swelling in your arms, legs, and abdomen. 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 (diuresis).
UsageFUROSEMIDE is generally used to treat: Edema, Heart Failure, Hypertension, Stroke, Heart Attack
FUROSEMIDE can address symptoms like: Shortness Of Breath, Arms Swelling, Legs Swelling, Abdomen Swelling
