FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q. How is Lasix different from Torasemide?

Lasix Tablet and Torasemide are both loop diuretics. It is used to treat high blood pressure and edema caused by underlying conditions of the liver, kidneys, or lungs. Unlike Torasemide, Lasix Tablet is also used to treat hypercalcemia (high levels of calcium in the blood). Torasemide has a longer duration of action compared to Lasix tablets and is safer for patients with renal failure.

 

Q. Should I drink a lot of water while taking Lasix tablets?

It is recommended to drink plenty of water while taking Lasix tablets. This is because Lasix Tablet increases urine production to remove excess fluid and electrolytes from the body. If you sweat a lot, exercise vigorously, or are in a hot climate, this fluid removal can increase your chances of dehydration. However, if you have kidney or heart problems, you should consult your doctor who will tell you how much water you should consume. Contact your doctor if you have any further questions or concerns.

 

Q. What happens if I take too many Lasix tablets?

Taking too many Lasix tablets can cause certain side effects, such as headaches, irregular heartbeat, dizziness, and temporary loss of consciousness. You may also feel thirsty and have to urinate frequently. If you notice any of these side effects or feel unwell, call your doctor right away.

 

Q. How long should I take it?

Lasix tablets should be taken in the dosage and duration prescribed by your doctor. Depending on the disease being treated, you may need to take it for a long time, even for a lifetime.

Q. Can I stop taking Lasix if my blood pressure drops?
