WHAT IS FUROSEMIDE 20MG USED FOR?
- Anonymous11 months ago
A loop diuretic also known as Lasix. Treatment (preventive and emergent) of heart failure, primarily, as left sided heart failure tends to result in fluid backing up in the lungs as the left ventricle is unable to fully eject. That condition means that fluid overload may result in fluid backing up into the lungs & could be lethal. Competitive body builders use it when they get close to contest day in order to show their cuts & vascularity to a further extent. Docs routinely will order it for a patient who rapidly becomes edematous as this could indicate onset of acute heart failure.
Lasix works at the Loop of Henle(s) in the kidney(s) & is NOT Potasium sparing.

It's a diuretic and reduces fluid in the body. Often used for congenital heart disease, fluid in the lungs or other parts of the body.

Apparently you already knew. How ELSE would your question end up in the right section? Oh, and YOU'RE ON THE INTERNET. Couldn't you look it up yourself? You're at least 26 years old, after all.
