Furosemide - An Overview
Furosemide, marketed under the brand Lasix, belongs to a class of medications known as diuretic medications. Through Push Health, people in need of a furosemide prescription can connect with a licensed medical provider who may be able to prescribe furosemide if it is safe and appropriate to do so.
What Is Furosemide Used For?
Furosemide is a diuretic medication. Furosemide is sometimes prescribed to manage high blood pressure (hypertension) alone or in combination with other medications such as hydrochlorothiazide. Furosemide is also used for the treatment of edema in conditions such as heart failure and cirrhosis. Similar to bumetanide and torsemide, furosemide is thought to block the absorption of sodium and chloride in the proximal and distal tubules and the loop of Henle. Furosemide is bound to proteins in the plasma and has a terminal half-life of roughly two hours. Furosemide is excreted in the urine.
Furosemide - Dosage and Cost
Furosemide tablets are white and taken orally, available as furosemide 20mg, 40mg and 80mg tablets. Furosemide itself is a white to off-white odorless crystalline powder that is largely insoluble in water. The usual starting furosemide dosage is 20mg but that depends on the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. Furosemide tablets are considered affordable and typically cost under fifteen cents per tablet. In some cases, the cost of furosemide medication may be covered under one's insurance plan. Also, furosemide coupons may be available at times to help reduce the cost of the medication even more.
Can I Buy Furosemide Online?
In the United States, furosemide is a prescription medication. As such, one cannot just buy furosemide online as the first step is getting a prescription and furosemide OTC is not available as a result. To help people in need of furosemide, Push Health connects people taking furosemide medication with licensed medical providers near them who can prescribe furosemide if it is safe and appropriate to do so.
Furosemide - Side Effects
Side effects of furosemide use include, but are not limited to, dehydration, electrolyte imbalances, thirst, weakness, lethargy and muscle cramps. Furosemide should not be taken by anyone with a hypersensitivity or allergy to the medication or in people with anuria. People allergic to sulfonamide medications may also be allergic to furosemide. Furosemide and alcohol should not be used together. Prior to use, concerns about side effects associated with furosemide use should be discussed with one's pharmacist and medical provider.
