Furosemide Market - Introduction

Furosemide is a medication used to reduce edema (extra fluid in the body) due to diseases/conditions such as kidney disease, heart disease, and liver disease. It is also used for the treatment of high blood pressure. Furosemide is sulfamoylanthranilic acid derivative. It is also known as diuretic and is primarily administered orally or intravenously. The injectable or intravenous form is used when the drug cannot be administered orally, especially in patients with chronic diseases. The medication helps the kidneys eliminate unneeded water and salt from the body through urine. It blocks the absorption of sodium, chloride, and water from the fluid in the kidneys. However, furosemide carries many side effects such as dehydration, low blood pressure, and electrolyte depletion. The medication reduces symptoms such as shortness of breath, and swelling of arms, legs, and abdomen.

In October 2015, the company recalled 16,270 bottles of tablets of diuretic furosemide as per the FDA Enforcement Report.
