Bumetanide Inj Uses

Bumetanide is used to reduce extra fluid in the body (edema) caused by conditions such as congestive heart failure, liver disease, and kidney disease. Getting rid of extra water helps to reduce fluid in the lungs so that you can breathe easier. It also helps to decrease swelling of the arms, legs, and stomach/abdomen. This medication is known as a diuretic (the same kind of drug as a "water pill"). It causes your body to get rid of extra water by increasing the amount of urine you make.

How To Use Bumetanide Inj

This medication is given by injection into a vein or into a muscle by a health care professional, as directed by your doctor. Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment.
