What is furosemide?
Furosemide is a prescription medication used to treat high blood pressure and edema (fluid retention) associated with congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver, and kidney disease. Furosemide is most effective when taken as a supplemental treatment alongside diet and exercise.
If left untreated, high blood pressure can damage many parts of the body including the heart, brain, blood vessels, and kidneys. This can result in many dangerous issues, such as heart disease, heart failure, heart attack, stroke, vision loss, and kidney failure.
