A diuretic is a medicine which increases the amount of urine that you pass out from your kidneys. They are often referred to as 'water tablets'. Furosemide is used to clear excess fluid from your body in conditions where your body retains more than it needs. This extra fluid causes you to feel breathless and tired, and your feet and ankles to swell - it is called water retention (oedema), and it is commonly caused by heart failure. Diuretics are also a common treatment for high blood pressure (hypertension). Furosemide is prescribed for high blood pressure when it cannot be sufficiently controlled by other diuretics.Before you start the treatment, read the manufacturer's printed information leaflet from inside the pack. It will give you more information about furosemide.Take furosemide exactly as your doctor tells you to. It is usual to be prescribed one dose to take each day, and you will be asked to take it preferably in the morning. Some people could be asked to take two doses a day, in which case one dose should be taken in the morning and the other early-mid afternoon. Your doctor will tell you how many tablets (or how much liquid medicine) to take for each dose. You will find the directions for taking the doses printed on the label of the pack, to remind you about what the doctor said to you.Furosemide side-effects What can I do if I experience this?
