What is torsemide?
Torsemide is a prescription drug that is used to treat high blood pressure and edema (fluid retention) caused by various medical problems. Torsemide helps the body get rid of excess salt and water by producing more urine.
High blood pressure is a common, but serious condition. When left untreated, it can place you at a greater risk of having a heart attack or stroke.
Torsemide is most effective when combined with healthy lifestyle changes such as eating a diet that is low in salt and unhealthy fats, maintaining a healthy weight, getting regular exercise, and abstaining from smoking and excessive alcohol consumption.
