Were you looking for information about Furosemide? Frusemide is a common misspelling of furosemide.
Furosemide (Lasix®) is a prescription drug used for treating high blood pressure and fluid retention. It is a diuretic that works by increasing the amount of salt and water that the kidneys remove from the blood. The medication comes in tablet form and is usually taken by mouth once or twice a day. While most people tolerate furosemide well, potential side effects include nausea and vomiting, low potassium levels (or other electrolyte imbalances), and sensitivity to the sun.
