Furosemide Oral Solution

Furosemide is a loop diuretic (water pill) that prevents your body from absorbing too much salt. This allows the salt to pass into your urine instead. Furosemide is used in the treatment of fluid retention (edema) in people with congestive heart failure, liver disease, or kidney disorders such as nephrotic syndrome. Furosemide is also used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Take Furosemide on an empty stomach, swallowing it without chewing and with enough liquid. If you think the action of this medicine is too strong or weak, tell your doctor or pharmacist. Your doctor will prescribe the lowest dose sufficient to produce the desired effect. In adults, it is recommended to start treatment with medium, one or two tablets (20 to 80 mg of furosemide) daily. The maintenance dose is half a tablet per day and the maximum dose will be as indicated by your doctor and will depend on your response to treatment.

What is Furosemide?

Furosemide pills are diuretics that belong to the sulfonamide class. It acts by increasing urine elimination (diuretic) and decreasing blood pressure (antihypertensive).

How does it work?

This blood pressure drug (Furosemide) is a loop diuretic with a brief and quick onset diuresis. The furosemide inhibits the Na + K + 2Cl- co-transport system, which is situated on the cell luminal membrane of the ascending branch of the Henle loop: the efficiency of furosemide's saluretic action is therefore dependent on the drug that enters the tubules via an anion transport mechanism. The suppression of sodium chloride resorption in this section of the Henle handle causes the diuretic activity. As a result, the sodium excretion percentage can approach 35% of the glomerular sodium filtration. Higher sodium excretion causes increased urine excretion (due to water binding by osmosis) and increased potassium secretion from the tubule distal. The process of excretion of calcium and magnesium ions is also increased. 

What are the benefits of taking it?

Always under the prescription of your doctor, this medicine is indicated for the treatment of:

  • Edema (fluid retention swelling) associated with congestive heart failure, liver cirrhosis (ascites), and kidney disease, including nephrotic syndrome (treatment of basic disease takes precedence).
  • Edema, subsequent to burns.
  • Mild and moderate hypertension

How do I use it and its dosage?

Use this high blood pressure medication precisely as directed by your doctor or pharmacist. If you are still unsure, see your doctor or pharmacist again.

Take Furosemide on an empty stomach, without chewing and with plenty of fluids.

Inform your doctor or pharmacist if you believe the activity of this medication is too strong or too weak.

Your doctor will prescribe the smallest dose necessary to get the desired result.

Adults should begin therapy with a medium dose of one or two tablets (20 to 80 mg furosemide) daily. The maintenance dose is half a tablet each day, with the maximum amount determined by your doctor based on your response to therapy.

In babies and children, a daily dose of 2mg/kg body weight, up to a maximum of 40 mg per day, is indicated. Your doctor will tell you how long you will be taking this medication. Do not discontinue therapy before.

Side effects & precautions

Like all medicines, this high diastolic blood pressure treatment medication can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.

As with other diuretics, prolonged administration of this medicinal product may increase the limitation of sodium (hyponatremia), chlorine (hypochloremic alkalosis), and consequently of water. It could also increase the loss of potassium (hypokalemia), calcium, and magnesium. These disorders are manifested with intense thirst, headache, confusion, muscle cramps, painful contraction of the muscles especially of the extremities (tetany), muscle weakness, heart rhythm disturbances, and gastrointestinal symptoms.

In particular in elderly patients, Furosemide may lead to or contribute to the occurrence of decreased total blood volume, dehydration, and coagulation disorders (thrombosis).

Furosemide can cause or aggravate the discomfort of patients with difficulty urinating, therefore, acute retention of urine can occur with possible secondary complications.

Rarely, cases of kidney problems have been reported that may result from an allergic kidney reaction (interstitial nephritis).

Treatment with Furosemide may lead to temporary increases in the blood levels of urea and creatinine, and increased blood levels of cholesterol, triglycerides, and uric acid, which may lead to gout attacks.

Occasionally the number of platelets can be excessively reduced (thrombocytopenia). In rare cases, leukopenia (a decrease in white blood cells), eosinophilia (an increase in a type of white blood cell, eosinophils), or fever may occur; In isolated cases, agranulocytosis (a decrease in one type of white blood cell, granulocytes), and a decrease in the number of red blood cells (aplastic anemia or hemolytic anemia) may appear.

Furosemide may decrease glucose tolerance. In patients with diabetes mellitus, a deterioration of metabolic control can be observed, and latent diabetes mellitus may manifest.

A drop in blood pressure may occur. When pronounced, it can lead to a worsening of the ability to concentrate and react, a mild state of mental confusion (clouding), a feeling of pressure in the head, headache, dizziness, drowsiness, weakness, vision disorders, dry eyes. mouth, inability to maintain an upright position (orthostatic intolerance). Rare cases of allergic inflammation of the blood vessels (vasculitis) have been described.

Occasionally skin and mucosa reactions such as itching, rash, blisters, and other more serious reactions such as erythema multiforme, bullous pemphigoid (autoimmune skin disease), Stevens-Johnson syndrome (severe vesicular skin and mucous membranes), toxic epidermal necrolysis (a severe skin disorder characterized by blistering and exfoliative lesions), exfoliative dermatitis, purpura, and allergic reaction to the sun (photosensitivity). Rarely, severe allergic-type reactions (anaphylactic or anaphylactoid) occur.

Rarely, a tingling sensation in the extremities (paresthesias) and hepatic encephalopathy (mental disturbances in patients with liver problems) may occur.

Rarely, hearing problems and a subjective sensation of clinking (tinnitus) may appear, although usually reversible, especially in patients with severe kidney problems and/or low blood protein levels (hypoproteinemia).

Digestive disorders such as nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea may rarely appear.

In isolated cases, liver problems (liver problems) can develop, such as intrahepatic cholestasis, increased liver enzymes, or inflammation of the pancreas (acute pancreatitis).

Why can't I get this medicine on the NHS?

Many patients have reported that it has become difficult to obtain liquid version of their medicines when they are having difficulty taking more traditional dose forms.

Instead of prescriptions for manufactured solutions or suspensions, some patients are being advised to use a crushed tablet dissolved in water to achieve a liquid version of their medicine.

Unfortunately, this isn’t always a suitable or convenient option for some patients.
