Description
Furosemide Tablets can be used to stop the build up of extra water in your body. This extra water can cause swollen ankles, shortness of breath and feeling more tired than usual. Furosemide Tablets work by helping you to pass more water (urine) than you usually do. If the extra water in your body is not removed, it can put extra strain on the heart, blood vessels, lungs, kidneys or liver.
How to use
Adults and elderly: The usual dose is one or two tablets first thing in the morning. Your doctor will tell you how many tablets to take.
Children and adolescents (under 18 years of age): Not recommended as safety in this age group has not yet been established.
