Furosemide, sold under the brand name Lasix among others, is a medication used to treat fluid build-up due to heart failure, liver scarring, or kidney disease.[1] It may also be used for the treatment of high blood pressure.[1] It can be taken by injection into a vein or by mouth.[1] When taken by mouth, it typically begins working within an hour, while intravenously, it typically begins working within five minutes.[1]

Common side effects include feeling lightheaded with standing, ringing in the ears, and sensitivity to light.[1] Potentially serious side effects include electrolyte abnormalities, low blood pressure, and hearing loss.[1] Blood tests are recommended regularly for those on treatment.[1] Furosemide is a type of loop diuretic that works by decreasing the reabsorption of sodium by the kidneys.[1]
