What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

Furosemide is used to reduce extra fluid in the body (edema) caused by conditions such as heart failure, liver disease, and kidney disease. This can lessen symptoms such as shortness of breath and swelling in your arms, legs, and abdomen. Lasix is also used to treat high blood pressure. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Furosemide is a "water pill" (diuretic) that causes you to make more urine. This helps your body get rid of extra water and salt.
Furosemide is a very potent medication. Using too much of Lasix can lead to serious water and salt/mineral loss. Therefore, it is important that you are closely monitored by your doctor while taking Lasix. Tell your doctor right away if you become very thirsty or confused, or develop muscle cramps/weakness. See also Side Effects section.
How to Use Lasix
Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start taking furosemide and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Take Lasix by mouth as directed by your doctor, with or without food, usually once or twice daily. It is best to avoid taking Lasix within 4 hours of your bedtime to prevent having to get up to urinate. Dosage of Lasix is based on your medical condition, age, and response to treatment. For children, the dose is also based on weight. Older adults usually start with a lower dose to decrease the risk of side effects. Do not increase your dose or take it more often than directed. Take Lasix regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time(s) of the day as directed. Keep taking Lasix even if you feel well. Most people with high blood pressure do not feel sick. Sucralfate, cholestyramine, and colestipol can decrease the absorption of furosemide. If you are taking any of these drugs, separate the timing of each dose from furosemide by at least 2 hours. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens (for example, your blood pressure readings remain high or increase).
Before taking furosemide, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. Lasix may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Lasix, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,kidney problems, liver problems, inability to make urine, gout, lupus. If you have diabetes, furosemide may affect your blood sugar. Check your blood sugar regularly as directed and share the results with your doctor. Your doctor may need to adjust your diabetes medication, exercise program, or diet. Furosemide may reduce the potassium level in your blood. Your doctor may instruct you to add potassium-rich foods to your diet (such as bananas, orange juice) or prescribe potassium supplements to prevent potassium loss. Ask your doctor for more details. Lasix may make you more sensitive to the sun. Limit your time in the sun. Avoid tanning booths and sunlamps. Use sunscreen and wear protective clothing when outdoors. Tell your doctor right away if you get sunburned or have skin blisters/redness. Lasix may make you dizzy or blur your vision. Alcohol or marijuana (cannabis) can make you more dizzy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs alertness or clear vision until you can do it safely. Limit alcoholic beverages. Talk to your doctor if you are using marijuana (cannabis). Severe sweating, diarrhea, or vomiting can increase the risk of dehydration. Report prolonged diarrhea or vomiting to your doctor. Follow your doctor's instructions about the amount of fluids you can drink. Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). Babies born early (premature infants) and children may be more sensitive to certain effects of Lasix, such as kidney stones. Older adults may be more sensitive to the effects of Lasix, especially dizziness and water/mineral loss. During pregnancy, Lasix should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. Lasix passes into breast milk and may affect milk production. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
If you miss a dose of Lasix, take it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Take your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.
