Were you looking for information about Furosemide? Furosemid is a common misspelling of furosemide.
Furosemide (Lasix®) is a diuretic often used for the treatment of high blood pressure and fluid retention. By increasing the amount of salt and water that the kidneys remove from the blood, the medicine can cause a decrease in blood volume, lowering blood pressure and helping with water retention. The medication is available by prescription and comes in tablet form. You should talk to your healthcare provider before using furosemide if you have diabetes, gout, or liver disease.
