  • What are the benefits of Lasix?

    Lasix removes excess salt and water from your bloodstream, which helps improve blood pressure and prevent fluid retention.

About Lasix (furosemide) 

Lasix (furosemide) is a loop diuretic used to treat fluid retention (edema) and high blood pressure in people with congestive heart failure, liver disease, and kidney disorders. It helps the kidneys eliminate extra salt and water through urine.

Lasix is available only by prescription. It is available in a generic formulation under brand names, including furosemide.

Lasix may be prescribed as tablets. It’s always important to follow the specific instructions on your prescription, as they can vary based on the formulation and dosage prescribed.

If you're prescribed Lasix, be sure to complete the entire course of the diuretic unless your doctor specifically tells you to stop. If you don’t complete your prescription, the diuretic may not fully treat your high blood pressure or edema. 

Lasix (furosemide) uses

There are several FDA-approved uses for Lasix, but your healthcare provider may also prescribe it off-label to treat other medical conditions.

Your PlushCare doctor may prescribe Lasix tablets for the following reasons or other reasons not listed here. Ask your online doctor or pharmacist if you have questions about why a medication is prescribed.

  • High blood pressure
