Torsemide is a loop diuretic (water pill) that prevents your body from absorbing too much salt, allowing the salt to instead be passed in your urine. Torsemide treats fluid retention (edema) in people with congestive heart failure, liver disease, or a kidney disorder such as nephrotic syndrome. This medication is also used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Torsemide may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
Demadex, generic name torsemide, belongs to a group of drugs known as Loop diuretics. It is used to treat edema that is associated with the kidney, heart, liver failure or conditions where the patient's body has excess body water. The medication can also be used alone or with other medication to treat high blood pressure. Demadex can also be prescribed by a physician for other reasons other than what has been stated here.
