Furosemide is in a class of medications called diruretics. It works by causing the kidneys to get rid of unneeded water and salt from the body into the urine. It is used alone or in combination to treat high blood pressure. Furosemide is also used to treat edema, caused by various medical problems including heart, kidney and liver disease. High blood pressure when not treated can cause damage to the brain, heart, blood vessels, kidneys and other parts of the body. Damage to these organs may cause heart disease, a heart attack, heart failure, stroke, kidney failure, loss of vision and other problems. In addition to taking this medication, making lifestyle changes will also help to control your blood pressure. These changes include eating a diet that is low in fat and salt, maintaing a healthy weight, exercising most days, not smoking and using alcohol in moderation.
