Product Information

 

Frusenex contains 100mg of its active ingredient Furosemide. Furosemide is a strong diuretic or “water pill”, a drug used to help with fluid retention or edema caused by a number of medical conditions like heart failure, kidney and liver diseases. Furosemide will help reduce symptoms of swelling of the arms, legs, and abdomen. This drug is also prescribed for patients with hypertension which leads to a reduced risk of stroke, heart attack and other kidney problems.

 

The kidneys are responsible for filtering the blood of salt (composed of sodium and chloride), water and other small molecules. The filtered sodium, chloride and water from the blood is reabsorbed into the blood before the filtered fluid becomes urine and then eliminated from the body. Frusenex works by stimulating the excretion of excess salt and water from the kidneys, thereby increasing the volume of urine. The active ingredient Furosemide, is a loop diuretic which specifically inhibits water and salt reabsorption in the ascending limb of the loop of Henle in the kidneys, by blocking the co-transporter of sodium, potassium and chloride.

 

This drug may also be prescribed by a healthcare professional for other medical conditions not mentioned above.

 

Manufacturer

 

Frusenex 100 is manufactured by Geno Pharmaceuticals Ltd.

 

Dosage

 

Consulting a physician is necessary before using this medication to determine the right dosage per individual. Each patient varies in dosage due to varying health factors.   

 

Furosemide tablets has a recommended dose of 20mg to 80mg as an initial adult dose and a maintenance dose of 20mg to 40mg every 6 to 8 hours.

 

For edema associated with heart failure, the recommended initial dose is 40mg per day and may be reduced to 20mg per day or 40mg on alternate days. Sometimes, a higher dose of 80mg or more daily in divided doses may be used. Elderly patients should start at lower doses, an initial dose of 20mg then may be increased in necessary.

 

The recommended dose for hypertension is 40mg to 80mg per day, alone or in combination with antihypertensive drugs. The medication must be taken continuously even if the patient feels fine unless instructed by a physician otherwise. Hypertension usually does not present any symptoms.

 

Furosemide tablets are taken orally, swallowed whole with a glass of water, and may be taken with or without food. However, taking the tablet with food reduces gastrointestinal discomfort. The tablet must be taken during the day, and avoid taking it within 4 hours of bedtime to prevent sleep interruption at night due to frequent toilet breaks.

Never double the dose just to make up for a missed dose. Take the missed dose as soon as remembered, but skip it if it’s almost time for the next dose. This medication must be taken regularly to get optimum benefit. The prescribed dose must strictly be followed and must not be changed without the advice of a physician to prevent the risk of irreversible hearing loss from high doses of Furosemide.

Frusenex may cause hypersensitivity to sun, therefore, sun exposure for long periods, tanning booths and sunlamps must be avoided. The use of sunscreen and protective clothing is recommended when going outdoors.

 

Frusenex may cause a reduction in potassium blood levels which may require a patient to take potassium supplements and potassium-rich diet.

 

Caution is advised to pregnant and lactating women. Frusenex is under Pregnancy Category C – animal studies have shown adverse effects on fetus, but there are no adequate human studies. Frusenex is known to be passed onto breast milk and may slow down breast milk production. This medication may be used by pregnant and lactating women only as prescribed by a physician, after weighing the benefits over the risks.

 

Frusenex may interact with other medications, causing serious side effects or change in how medications work. Ototoxic effects may be increased if Furosemide is taken concomitantly with aminoglycoside antibiotics, ethacrynic acid and cisplatin. Salicylates can reduce the diuretic effect of Furosemide and concomitant use may increase risk of salicylate toxicity. Severe hypotension may occur if Furosemide is combined with ACE inhibitors and MAOIs, and phenytoin may interfere with the renal action of Furosemide. Furosemide can antagonize the skeletal muscle effect of tubocurarine, antagonize hypoglycemic effect of antidiabetic drugs, can potentiate the action of succinylcholine and can increase nephrotoxicity of cephalisporins. It can also increase the risk of cardiotoxocity with cardiac glycosides and antihistamines. Concomitant use of Frusenex and chloral hydrate is not recommended as it may lead to flushing, sweating attacks, restlessness, nausea, increased blood pressure and tachycardia.

 

Increased damage to kidneys will occur if Furosemide interacts with the following medications:

  • Antivirals
  • Chemotherapy
  • Bowel disorder medications
  • Medications that prevent organ transplant rejection
  • Osteoporosis and antibiotic injectable medications
  • Other pain and arthritis medications

 

Sucralfate must be taken at least 2 hours before or after taking Furosemide because simultaneous use can reduce the hypotensive and diuretic effect of Furosemide.

 

Consult a healthcare professional for more information on Frusenex drug interactions.

Alcohol in combination with Furosemide (Frusenex) may cause side effects such as headache, dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting or changes in heart rate, due to the additive effects as both can lower blood pressure.
