Pharmacotherapeutic group: Furosemide.
ATCvet code: QC03CA01
Frusedale 40 mg oral tablets contain Furosemide. Furosemide is a potent loop diuretic with a rapid action.
Furosemide inhibits electrolyte resorption in the proximal and distal renal tubules and in the ascending Loop of Henle. Excretion of sodium, potassium and chloride ions is enhanced, and also water excretion is enhanced. Furosemide has no effect on carbonic anhydrase. Diuretic activity begins one hour after oral administration and continues for four hours. The potency ensures diuretic action even when renal function is poor. Loop diuretics may cause severe potassium loss.
