Lasix - Summary
Lasix is a diuretic medication used for treating edema (i.e. swelling) in some people with other underlying medical conditions. People who need a Lasix medication prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider in the area who can prescribe generic Lasix, including Lasix 20 mg and Lasix 40 mg, when appropriate to do so.
What Is Lasix Used For?
Lasix, like bumetanide (Bumex) and torsemide (Demadex), belongs to a class of medications known as loop diuretics. Containing the active ingredient furosemide, Lasix is thought to work in the loop of Henle and the proximal and distal tubules of the kidney by impairing the absorption of the electrolytes chloride and sodium. In doing so, Lasix causes water to be excreted into the urine, leading to diuresis, and is why Lasix medication is sometimes referred to as a water pill. Lasix is used in the treatment of edema related to advanced liver disease and congestive heart failure, often in the setting of high blood pressure, and possible for other reasons requiring diuresis.
Lasix - Dosage and Cost
Lasix prescription medication is available as Lasix 20 mg, Lasix 40 mg and Lasix 80 mg tablets. In terms of dosage and administration, Lasix is typically started at Lasix 20 mg given as a single dose. Some people take Lasix water pills on a more regular basis as determined by their specific health needs and the judgement of their medical provider. Once administered orally, diuresis from Lasix often peaks within two hours and the effects last for up to eight hours. Branded Lasix medication is relatively affordable, costing a little over $1 per Lasix 20 mg tablet at many pharmacies in the United States. Generic Lasix tablets are generally cheaper. Some insurance plans may cover costs associated with a Lasix medication prescription (depending on the insurance coverage). Also, Lasix coupons can sometimes be found online or using a copay card.
Can I Buy Lasix Online?
Lasix OTC is not available in the United States as Lasix is a prescription medication. Because of this, one cannot just buy Lasix online as the first step is consulting with a licensed medical provider. People who need a Lasix medication prescription, however, can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Lasix medication, including generic Lasix, Lasix 20 mg and Lasix 40 mg water pills, when appropriate to do so.
Lasix - Side Effects
Before using Lasix medication, it is important to discuss possible side effects and other concerns with one's pharmacist and medical provider. Side effects from Lasix medication use include dehydration, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal cramping. In excess, Lasix tablets can cause significant electrolyte abnormalities and low blood pressure. Lasix can cause hearing abnormalities and people using Lasix prescription medication regularly should be monitored for hearing changes. People with a known hypersensitivity to the ingredients in Lasix should not use the medication. Lasix and alcohol should not be used together.
