What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

Description

Lasix is a medication that is used to treat swelling (edema) associated with congestive heart failure, liver cirrhosis, and kidney disease. It's also used to treat high blood pressure.

Furosemide is the generic name of Lasix.

Lasix is supplied in 20 mg, 40 mg, and 80 mg tablets for oral use.

Directions

Take Lasix as directed by your doctor. If you have any questions or concerns about the medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist.

Lasix dosing is based on the patient's response. Typically, Lasix is taken by mouth one to two times a day, whereas some patients only use Lasix on an as-needed basis. Because Lasix causes frequent urination, many patients take it earlier in the day so that they do not have to wake up to use the restroom all night.

Ingredients

Furosemide, a loop diuretic, is the active ingredient in each Lasix tablet. Lactose monohydrate NF, magnesium stearate NF, starch NF, talc USP, and colloidal silicon dioxide NF are the inactive ingredients included.

Contraindications

Patients whose kidneys cannot produce urine should avoid Lasix.

Patients with an allergy to furosemide or to any of the other ingredients contained in Lasix should not take the medication.

Cautions

  • Before you begin treatment with Lasix, inform your doctor of the following:
    • All the medications you take
    • Your allergies
    • Your medical history and current health problems
    • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Lasix can cause dehydration, low blood pressure, and electrolyte abnormalities.
  • Lasix should be used with caution by patients who are allergic to sulfonamide medications.

Side Effects

Hepatic encephalopathy in patients with liver problems, pancreatitis, allergic reactions, ringing of the ears, hearing loss, dizziness, headache, and low blood pressure are some Lasix medication side effects; however, these are not all the side effects that can occur. Tell your doctor immediately if you experience side effects that bother you or won't go away.

You can buy Lasix online at a competitive price and with a valid prescription from your doctor at Canada Drugs Direct.
