Lasix

Lasix is a highly effective FDA approved medication for the treatment of excessive edema (fluid retention) due to kidney disorder (nephrotic syndrome), heart failure, cirrhosis and liver disease. It is also used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lasix works by regulating the way in which the body absorbs salts.

Also known as:  Furosemide.

Description

Lasix prevents excessive edema (fluid retention) in people with kidney disorder (nephrotic syndrome), heart failure, cirrhosis and liver disease. It is also used for the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension), high levels of potassium (hyperkalemia), calcium (hypercalcemia), and magnesium (hypermagnesemia).

The active component, Furosemide, is a potent loop diuretic (water pill) that eliminates water and salt from the body. Furosemide works by blocking the absorption of sodium, chloride, and water from the filtered fluid in the kidney tubules, causing a profound increase in the output of urine (diuresis).

Lasix starts to act within one hour after oral administration, and the effect lasts for about 6-8 hours.

Dosage

Lasix is available in tablets which should be taken orally with a full glass of water.

The dosage of Lasix depends on the body weight and on the health status of the recipient.

Take Lasix at the same time once a day.

Do not take more than your recommended dose, as high doses of furosemide may cause irreversible hearing loss.

Do not crush or chew the tablet.

To achieve the most effective results, do not stop taking Lasix suddenly.

Overdose

In case of a Lasix overdose visit your doctor or health care provider immediately. Symptoms of a Lasix overdose include fainting, tinnitus, confusion, weakness, lightheadedness, lack of appetite.

Storage

Store at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F) away from moisture, light and heat. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of the reach of children.

Calcitonin was used in conjunction with saline diuresis, furosemide, and prednisone in treatment of a dog that consumed a rodenticide that contained cholecalciferol and has been touted as safe for nontarget species. This report shows that the rodenticide is toxic to dogs and that salmon calcitonin is a useful treatment for the often refractory hypercalcemia induced by vitamin D toxicosis.

We developed a microelectrode technique to characterize the electrophysiological properties in Caco-2 cells, and used it to determine the mechanisms of absorption enhancers. The action of absorption enhancers on the apical membrane of Caco-2 cells was estimated by measuring the apical membrane potential (Vm) with the microelectrode. The Vm value of Caco-2 cells in Hanks' balanced salt solution containing 0.5 mM K+ was 18.9+/-0.8 mV (n=217), and the apical membrane resistance was 49.4+/-1.1 MOhms (n=160). In the electrophysiological study with absorption enhancers, laurylmaltoside (LM) markedly decreased the Vm value, while sodium glycocholate (NaGC) moderately reduced this value, and EDTA did not affect the value. These findings might be associated with their action sites, plasma membrane or tight junction in Caco-2 cell monolayers. In influx and transport studies with these absorption enhancers, LM enhanced the influx of furosemide, which is transported via both the transcellular and paracellular routes into Caco-2 cells, and enhanced its transport to the basolateral side of Caco-2 monolayers more than that of 5(6)-carboxyfluorescein (CF), a paracellular marker. EDTA did not increase the influx of furosemide, and enhanced the transport of furosemide and CF across Caco-2 cell monolayers to the same extent. In contrast, NaGC only slightly increased the influx of furosemide and did not enhance the transport of either furosemide or CF across the Caco-2 monolayers in this study. These findings were well correlated with the effects of these absorption enhancers on the electrophysiological parameters. Therefore, the microelectrode technique might be useful for evaluating the action of absorption enhancers in the plasma membrane at an intact cell level.

All submersions involved bodies of freshwater. Fourteen animals were submerged in man-made water sources, 13 were submerged in natural water sources, and the body of water was not recorded in 1 case. Twenty (71%) submersions occurred from May through September. Cause was identified in 16 animals and included extraordinary circumstances (n = 6), falling into water (5), breaking through ice (3), and intentional submersion (2). Twelve animals were found submerged in water with unclear surrounding circumstances. Treatment included administration of supplemental oxygen, antimicrobials, furosemide, corticosteroids, and aminophylline and assisted ventilation. Respiratory dysfunction was detected in 21 animals. Neurologic dysfunction was detected in 12 animals, hepatocellular compromise was detected in 6 animals, and cardiovascular dysfunction was detected in 4 animals. Three dogs had hematologic dysfunction, and 2 dogs had acute renal dysfunction. Eighteen (64%) animals survived to hospital discharge, but all of the cats died. In 9 of 10 nonsurvivors, respiratory tract failure was the cause of death or reason for euthanasia.

Therapeutic efficacy of some orally administered molecules is often conditioned by their solubility in physiological fluids as well as their absorption. The last aspect becomes more limitative and conditioning drug plasmatic profiles when the active ingredient is preferentially absorbed in a specific region of the gastrointestinal tract. A case is represented by furosemide (FURO) preferentially absorbed in the stomach, site in which, because of its acidic nature, is poorly soluble. To solve this problem new oral solid formulations have been developed. The inorganic-organic hybrid MgAl-HTlc-FURO has been formulated in tablet in which floating and mucoadhesion properties have been combined. Swellable (Methocel K4, Methocel K15, Methocel K100 M, hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose) or swellable/erodible polymers (Methocel E50 LV, Methocel K100 LV), used to obtain the floating, were combined to Carbopol(®) (971P or 974P) to confer mucoadhesion capacity. Prepared tablets were deeply characterized in terms of hydration capacity, erosion %, buoyancy lag time/floating time and mucoadhesion. The most suitable tablets selected from these preliminary tests, submitted to in vitro release studies, showed a sustained release of FURO. This is useful to maintain the therapeutic concentrations for a long time, in comparison to conventional dosage forms, thanking to the enhancement of formulation residence time in the stomach.

A new method is described for the determination of the most common diuretic and laxative adulterants found in formulations of anorexics and antidepressants. The method is based on the separation of furosemide, hydrochlorothiazide, chlorthalidone and amiloride (diuretics), phenolphthalein (laxative), amfepramone (anorexic) and fluoxetine and paroxetine (antidepressants) by capillary zone electrophoresis with capacitively coupled contactless conductivity detection. The method showed a precision ranging from 1.9% to 6.9% for a concentration of 25 mg/L, 0.6% to 5.3% for a concentration of 50 mg/L and 1.6% to 6.0% for a concentration of 100 mg/L for all analytes. The accuracy was 99% for amiloride, 102% for chlorthalidone, 101% for hydrochlorothiazide, 101% for furosemide, 94% for phenolphthalein, 105% for fluoxetine, 114% for paroxetine and 117% for amfepramone. The method allowed the drugs to be determined in the formulations at concentrations higher than 5.1 mg/kg for amiloride, 7.7 mg/kg for chlorthalidone, 6.8 mg/kg for hydrochlorothiazide, 10.7 mg/kg for furosemide, 8.4 mg/kg for phenolphthalein, 11.0 mg/kg for fluoxetine, 9.4 mg/kg for paroxetine and 11.0 mg/kg for amfepramone. Three of the 26 analysed herbal formulations were found to be adulterated (not declared on the label) with the diuretic hydrochlorothiazide. Five other samples contained diuretics declared on the label on the formulation. Thus, a total of eight samples, which were marketed as natural products, contained diuretics (declared or not) on the formulation.

We analyzed the results of 112 consecutive coronary angiography examinations (CAG). All patients received intravenous 500 mL multielectrolyte fluid (PWE) before catheterization. Group I of 55 randomly selected cases in addition were treated with 300 mg of NAC. The other 57 cases (group II) received only hydration. After catheterization, we administered 500 mL 0.9% saline with 20 mg furosemide. A nonionic, low-osmolality contrast agent (OPTIRAY) was used for all catheterizations. All patients underwent measurements of serum creatinine and creatinine clearance levels before and after the procedure (CREA0, CREA1, CC0, and CC1, respectively). We assessed the influence of NAC on CREA1 and the relative change of CREA1/CREA0 and CC1/CC0 ratios.

The effect of cis-chlorodiamine platinum (cisplatin) on different tissues of rat was studied. Nephrotoxicity and neurotoxicity were clearly observed both clinically and histologically. The minimising action of penicillamine as a chelating agent and/or lasix as a diuretic on the toxic side-effect of cisplatin was also studied. Both agents succeeded in reducing the toxic side-effect of cisplatin to some extent but failed to reduce mortality among the experimental animals. The study has also manifested liver and heart to be additional organs susceptible to damage, following cisplatin treatment.

This study indicates that the enlargement of the intrastrial space requires not only the blockade of the Na+-K+-2Cl- cotransporter but also normal activity of the Na+-K+-ATPase, and suggests that the bumetanide-induced enlargement of the intrastrial space resulted from the imbalance between the activities of the Na+-K+-2Cl- cotransporter and the Na+-K+-ATPase.

TRV120027 is a novel β-arrestin biased ligand of the angiotensin II type 1 receptor; it antagonizes canonical G-protein-mediated coupling while, in contrast to classical angiotensin II type 1 receptor antagonists, it engages β-arrestin-mediated signaling. Consequently, TRV120027 inhibits angiotensin II-mediated vasoconstriction while, via β-arrestin coupling, it increases cardiomyocyte contractility. We hypothesized that TRV120027 would elicit beneficial cardiorenal actions when added to furosemide in experimental heart failure.

Mesenteric perfusion pressure was measured in the in situ blood-perfused mesentery of anaesthetized rats. Increases in perfusion pressure were produced by mesenteric periarterial electrical stimulation at 3, 6 and 10 Hz before and after the administration of frusemide 5 mg/kg intravenously (i.v.) or vehicle. Loss of volume due to diuresis was prevented by replacement with intravenous saline. Frusemide did not cause any changes in blood pressure or baseline perfusion pressure. Responses Suprax And Alcohol to electrical stimulation were inhibited by frusemide (P less than 0.05) but unchanged by vehicle administration. Acute bilateral nephrectomy or treatment with indomethacin (2 mg/kg i.v.) prevented the inhibitory effect of frusemide on responses to sympathetic nerve stimulation. Responses to sympathetic nerve stimulation were potentiated by an infusion of angiotensin II (12 ng/min) into the mesenteric artery. This infusion did not alter either blood pressure or baseline perfusion pressure. Administration of frusemide 5 mg/kg i.v. attenuated the potentiating effect of angiotensin II on vasoconstrictor responses to electrical nerve stimulation. Frusemide may lead to the release of a prostanoid or prostanoid precursor which inhibits vascular constrictor responses.

The resting membrane potential of innervated and denervated rat diaphragm muscle fibres was studied at different concentrations of Cl-, K+ and Na+ in the external solution and following the furosemide treatment. Combination Drug Benicar The Cl- equilibrium potential (ECl) and resting potential are equal in innervated fibres while denervation shifts the ECl value in the positive direction when compared with the resting potential value. The postdenervation depolarization is delayed in furosemide-treated muscles. It is concluded that neurotrophic control disturbance leads to activation of furosemide-sensitive Cl-influx system, which causes elevation of the intracellular concentration of chloride ions and muscle membrane depolarization.

Capillary leakage Syndrome (CLS) is a rare clinical syndrome, that was first described in 1960, characterized by acute episodes of generalized edema, hemoconcentration, hypoproteinemia and monoclonal gammopathy, in the vast majority of cases. We describe a 39-year-old man with anasarca, bilateral pleural and pericardial effusions, ascites and diffuse alveolo-intersticial edema. Clinical and laboratory findings were Hyzaar Tablets consistent with an acute episode of CLS. Treatment with prednisone, furosemide and aminophylline was started, which lead to a gradual improvement in 48 hours. Pathophysiologically there is an increase in capillary permeability with the extravasation of fluid and plasmatic proteins to the extravascular space that can lead to hypovolaemic shock. In the second phase there is a reentry of the fluid overload leading to pulmonary edema. The etiology of this hyperpermeability still remains unclear. The role of cytokines has become central in the comprehension of pathophysiology of CLS. Adhesion molecules are probably also involved in the genesis of capillary leakage. CLS treatment remains empirical. However, at present it seems that the association of steroids with furosemide, aminophylline and terbutaline are capable of controlling the clinical manifestation of the acute episodes in most cases. To our knowledge no prophylatic therapy has clearly proven its efficacy. There are only a few series analyzing the long-term evolution of patients with CLS. Further studies are necessary with the objective to collect enough patients with CLS to observe natural history of the disease and evaluate the efficacy of empiric treatments.

This review discusses the possibility of whether furosemide acyl glucuronide, a metabolite of furosemide, contributes to the clinical effect of diuresis. First an analytical method (e.g. HPLC) must be available to measure both parent drug and furosemide acyl glucuronide. Then, with Arcoxia Online correctly treated plasma and urine samples (light protected, pH 5) from volunteers and furosemide-treated patients, the kinetic curves of both furosemide as well as its acyl glucuronide can be measured. The acyl glucuronide is formed in part by the kidney tubules and it is possible that the compound is pharmacologically active through inhibition of the Na+/2Cl-/K+ co-transport system; up to now the mechanism of action has been solely attributed to furosemide. The total body clearance of furosemide occurs by hepatic and renal glucuronidation (50%) and by renal excretion (50%). Enterohepatic cycling of furosemide acyl glucuronide, followed by hydrolysis, results in a second and slow elimination phase with a half-life of 20-30 h. This slow elimination phase coincides with a pharmacodynamic rebound phase of urine retention. After each dosage of furosemide, there is first a short stimulation of urine flow (4 h), which is followed by a 3-day recovery period of the body. The following clinical implications arise from study of the elimination kinetics of furosemide. Repetitive dosing must result in accumulation of the recovery period. Accumulation of furosemide and its acyl glucuronide in patients with end-stage renal failure results from infinite hepatic cycling. Impaired kidney function may result in impaired glucuronidation and diuresis. While kidney impairment normally requires a dose reduction for those compounds which are mainly eliminated by renal excretion, for diuretics, a dose increment is required in order to maintain a required level of diuresis. The full clinical impact of the accumulation of furosemide and its acyl glucuronide in patients with end-stage renal failure has to be determined.

The altered permeability characteristics of erythrocytes infected with malaria parasites have been a source of interest for over 30 years. Recent electrophysiological studies have provided strong evidence that these changes reflect transmembrane transport through ion channels in the host erythrocyte plasma membrane. However, conflicting results and differing interpretations of the data have led to confusion in this field. In an effort to unravel these issues, the groups involved recently came together for a week of discussion and experimentation. In this article, the various models for altered transport are reviewed, together with the areas of consensus in the field Imitrex Dose Injection and those that require a better understanding.

The response of renin release to the administration of renin inhibitors cannot be studied with conventional enzymatic methods used to measure plasma renin. In the present experiments, a novel multirange enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for human and primate renin was used to investigate the changes in plasma immunoreactive renin after renin inhibition. A potent and long-acting statine-containing renin inhibitor, CGP 29 287, was injected in conscious marmosets after mild or severe sodium depletion. In mildly sodium-depleted marmosets, CGP 29 287 (0.1 mg/kg i.v.) reduced mean arterial blood pressure and completely inhibited plasma Viagra Jelly Reviews renin activity for up to 30 minutes. This response was associated with a transient increase in plasma immunoreactive renin concentration. After a dose of 1.0 mg/kg i.v., the reduction of mean arterial pressure and the complete inhibition of plasma renin activity persisted for up to 120 minutes. These effects were accompanied by a sustained increase in plasma immunoreactive renin concentration. In severely sodium-depleted marmosets, CGP 29 287 (1.0 mg/kg i.v.) induced a marked fall in systolic blood pressure and complete inhibition of plasma renin activity within 30 minutes of injection. Plasma immunoreactive renin levels increased to 257% of pretreatment values. The converting-enzyme inhibitor enalaprilat (2 mg/kg i.v.) induced a fall in systolic blood pressure of similar magnitude, which was accompanied by an increase in plasma renin activity. Levels of plasma immunoreactive renin increased to 210% of pretreatment values. Hydralazine (0.2 mg/kg i.v.) did not increase plasma renin activity or plasma immunoreactive renin levels despite a comparable hypotensive effect.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Three patients with chronic heart failure, men aged 29, 78 and 69 years, developed severe dyspnoea and oedema in spite of reduced sodium and fluid intake and medication including furosemide. Heart failure may become 'resistant to diuretics' due to pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic causes. High-dose continuous intravenous administration of a loop diuretic may afford relief in such cases, if necessary in combination with a thiazide derivative, an ACE inhibitor, an inotropic agent or an extracorporal technique. Monitoring and correction of the state of hydration of a patient with chronic heart failure may improve the prognosis and the quality of life.

There are reports indicating that diuretics including chlorothiazide, furosemide, ethacrynic acid, amiloride and bumetanide can have anticonvulsant properties. Intracellular acidification appears to be a mechanism for the anticonvulsant action of some diuretics. This study was conducted to investigate whether or not triamterene, a K(+)-sparing diuretic, can generate protection against seizures induced by intravenous or intraperitoneal pentylenetetrazole (PTZ) models. And to see if, triamterene can withstand maximal electroshock seizure (MES) in mice. We also investigated to see if there is any connection between triamterene's anti-seizure effect and ATP-sensitive K(+) (KATP) channels. Five days triamterene oral administration (10, 20 and 40 mg/kg), significantly increased clonic seizure threshold which was induced by intravenous pentylenetetrazole. Triamterene (10, 20 and 40 mg/kg) treatment also increased the latency of clonic seizure and decreased its frequency in intraperitoneal PTZ model. Administration of triamterene (20 mg/kg) also decreased the incidence of tonic seizure in MES-induced seizure. Co-administration of a KATP sensitive channel blocker, glibenclamide, in the 6th day, 60 min before intravenous PTZ blocked triamterene's anticonvulsant effect. A KATP sensitive channel opener, diazoxide, enhanced triamterene's anti-seizure effect in both intravenous PTZ or MES seizure models. At the end, triamterene exerts anticonvulsant effect in 3 seizure models of mice including intravenous PTZ, intraperitoneal PTZ and MES. The anti-seizure effect of triamterene probably is induced through KATP channels.

The aim of the current study was to evaluate the accuracy of allometric scaling methods for drugs metabolized by UDP-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs), such as ketoprofen, imipramine, lorazepam, levofloxacin, zidovudine, diclofenac, furosemide, raloxifene, gemfibrozil, mycophenolic acid, indomethacin, and telmisartan. Human plasma clearance (CL) predictions were conducted from preclinical in vivo data by using multiple-species allometry with the rule of exponents and single-species allometric scaling (SSS) of mice, rats, monkeys, or dogs. Distribution volume at a steady state (V(ss)) was predicted by multiple-species allometry or SSS of V(ss). Oral plasma clearance (CL(po)) was calculated under the assumption that F(a) × F(g) was equivalent across species. Each of the results was compared with the observed parameter calculated from the clinical data after intravenous or oral administration. Multiple-species allometry and SSS of mice, rats, and dogs resulted in a similar accuracy of CL and CL(po) predictions. Monkeys tended to provide the most accurate predictions of human CL and CL(po). The ability to predict the half-life, which was determined from CL and V(ss) predictions, was more accurate in SSS of rats and monkeys. The in vivo fraction metabolized by glucuronidation (f(m,UGT)) in bile duct-cannulated monkeys was relatively similar to that of humans compared with other animal species, which likely contributed to the highest accuracy of SSS prediction of monkeys. On the basis of the current results, monkeys would be more reliable than other animal species in predicting human pharmacokinetics and f(m,UGT) for drugs metabolized by UGTs.

The response of patients with tinnitus to the suppressive effects of IV furosemide is about 50%. Since furosemide is a drug without known effects on the central nervous system but with well documented effects in the auditory periphery, we hypothesized that it suppressed tinnitus of peripheral origin and that the response rate was due to that selectivity. To test this hypothesis we recruited 14 patients with unilateral tinnitus who had previously undergone either a labyrinthectomy or acoustic neuroma removal in the complaint ear. Tinnitus in these patients would most likely be of central origin. The first 12 patients tested were negative in response to IV furosemide as compared to the 50% response rate already documented. The last two patients had acoustic neuromas removed and were positive to IV furosemide. meaning that their tinnitus was suppressed. Examination of the case records of these latter two patients revealed that their cochlear portion of the VIIIn had been spared during surgery. We therefore suggest that IV furosemide selectively suppresses tinnitus of peripheral etiology.
