What is Furoscix used for?

This medication is used to reduce extra water in the body in people with heart failure. Getting rid of the extra water can improve symptoms of heart failure such as trouble breathing or swelling (edema). It can also decrease the strain on your heart and blood vessels. This medication is known as a diuretic (like a "water pill"). It works by increasing the amount of urine you make. This injectable form of furosemide is not meant for long-term use and is used when the drug cannot be taken by mouth.
