Furosemide tablets is one of a group of medicines called diuretics (water tablets).
Your doctor might prescribe Furosemide tablets to treat a condition called oedema where there is too much water in your body. This could be due to problems with your heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, blood vessels or high blood pressure. Furosemide helps your kidneys to get rid of the extra water that is not needed in your body.
This drug is also used to treat high blood pressure. Lowering high blood pressurehelps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems.
Furosemide is a “water pill” (diuretic) that causes you to make more urine. This helps your body get rid of extra water and salt.
