What is Lasilactone (Frusemide/Spironolactone) used for?
Lasilactone (Frusemide/Spironolactone) is an oral diuretic medication prescribed to treat patients with oedema. It operates by preventing sodium absorption in the kidneys to draw excess medication out of the body to be eliminated through urination. It is commonly prescribed to treat oedema caused by heart failure, liver cirrhosis, or kidney failure. Your doctor may prescribe this medication for the treatment of other unlisted purposes, as well.
