What are Furosemide injections 20 mg for hypertension (diuretic, Lasix)?
Furosemide is a loop diuretic medication. It works by inhibiting Na and Cl reabsorption within the renal tubule, by this, causing more sodium, chloride and potassium to remain in the urine. By decreasing the amount of fluid in the body, Furosemide injections reduce the blood flow and lower blood pressure.
