Overview Information on Furosemide

Pharmacist Tip
Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs mental alertness until you know if furosemide will make you drowsy or dizzy.     
Furosemide is a type of medicine known as a loop diuretic, or, by its more common name, a water pill.

You may have a medical condition that is causing your body to retain extra fluids. When this happens, you may see swelling in some area of your body. Not everyone who needs to take furosemide has swelling.

Your doctor will decide if taking furosemide is right to treat your condition.

Your doctor may want you to take furosemide alone or with other medicines to treat your condition, such as high blood pressure, heart failure, or liver or kidney problems. While furosemide may help reduce the amount of fluids in your body and make you more comfortable, it will not cure your underlying condition.
