What is Dytor (Torasemide) used for?
Dytor (Torasemide) is an oral diuretic used to treat patients suffering from fluid retention caused by heart failure, liver cirrhosis, or kidney failure. The medication operates by preventing sodium absorption to draw excess water out of the body to be eliminated through urination. This function may also make it useful for treating hypertension. Your doctor may prescribe this medication to be used along with others or for the treatment of other unlisted conditions, as well.
How should I use Dytor (Torasemide)?
Always follow your doctor`s instructions while using Dytor (Torasemide) to get the safest and most effective results from treatment. One tablet is normally administered in the morning, but your individual instructions will be determined by your age, weight, health condition, and the severity of your symptoms. The doses should be swallowed with a large glass of water and may be taken on an empty stomach, although a snack or meal is suggested prior to use if you experience nausea. Never split, chew, or crush the tablets as this may destroy or alter the effects of their contents. It is recommended to greatly increase your fluid intake while using this medicine to prevent dehydration. You are also not recommended to take the medication prior to going to sleep as increased urination may cause sleep disturbances.
