How does Furosemide work? Aug 18 , 2022

Furosemide is a type of medicine called a diuretic. It's used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), heart failure and a build up of fluid in the body (oedema).

It's also sometimes used to help you pee when your kidneys are not working properly.

Diuretics are sometimes called "water tablets" because they make you pee more. This helps get rid of extra fluid in your body.

Furosemide is only available on prescription. It comes as tablets and a liquid that you swallow. It can also be given by injection, but this is usually only done in hospital.

Furosemide sometimes comes mixed with other diuretics, including with:

  • amiloride (called co-amilofruse, Frumil or Frumil LS)
  • spironolactone (called Lasilactone)
  • triamterene (called Frusene)
