Frusemide Sandoz (Frusemide)
What is Frusemide Sandoz (Frusemide) used for?
Frusemide Sandoz (Frusemide) is an oral diuretic prescribed to treat patients suffering from oedema. This condition may be caused by heart failure, liver cirrhosis, or kidney failure and results in the accumulation of water in the body causing swelling. The medication operates by preventing sodium absorption in the body to draw the excess water out of the body to be eliminated through urination. Your doctor may also prescribe its use for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.
How should I use Frusemide Sandoz (Frusemide) ?
Frusemide Sandoz (Frusemide) should always be used according to your doctor`s instructions to get the safest and most effective results from treatment. The normal regimen is one tablet administered once or twice daily depending on your age, weight, current health, the condition being treated, and the severity of your symptoms. These should be swallowed with a large glass of water and may be taken on an empty stomach, although a snack or meal is recommended prior to use if you experience nausea. Do not split or crush the tablets before swallowing them to avoid unintentionally destroying or altering the effects of their contents. It is suggested to increase your fluid intake during use to prevent dehydration as this medication may cause frequent urination. Ask your pharmacist or doctor any questions you have about the medicine to ensure the correct administration.
