Were you looking for information about Furosemide? Furosimide is a common misspelling of furosemide.
Furosemide (Lasix®) is a prescription medication used for controlling high blood pressure and treating water retention. It is a diuretic ("water pill") that works by increasing the amount of salt and water that the kidneys remove from the blood. The drug can increase urination and may also cause side effects such as nausea or vomiting, sensitivity to the sun, and electrolyte imbalances. Before your healthcare provider prescribes furosemide, make sure he or she is aware if you are pregnant, have diabetes, or have any allergies.
