Burinex contains the generic ingredient bumetanide and belongs to the class of drugs called loop diuretics. Sometimes called water tablets, this type of medicine draws excess water from the blood which helps patients with congestive heart failure and edema.
Doctors prescribe Burinex to patients with edema to relieve symptoms like shortness of breath and swelling of the legs, ankles and feet.
For people with congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver and kidney disease, edema may occur. Edema is the swelling, especially in the legs, caused by excess fluid held in the body’s tissues. Burinex works on certain cells in the kidneys and increases urination. Less fluid remains in the bloodstream and swelling is reduced.
The usual daily dose is 0.5mg to 2.0mg taken orally once per day. If additional doses are required, a second dose may be given after four to five hours. Wait another five hours before a third dose is given if necessary. The daily maximum dosage is 10mg.
Common side effects may include:
These may not be all the side effects of Burinex 1mg.
Burinex should not be taken by people who are unable to urinate (anuria) or have severe electrolyte depletion. Do not take this medication if you are allergic to it or any of its ingredients.
Burinex is a potent diuretic so careful medical supervision is required. Potassium levels in your blood may be reduced so your doctor may recommend consuming bananas and orange juice. For patients with hepatic failure, the dosage should be kept at a minimum.
Store at room temperature and away from light. Keep the blister pack inside the outer carton. Burinex 1mg tablets are supplied in blister packs of 30 tablets.
Edema means there is an excessive amount of water in your body and can cause symptoms like swollen ankles, legs and feet, feeling bloated, trouble breathing or wheezing and weight gain. For patients with congestive heart failure, fluid accumulates in your body because your heart is not pumping the blood effectively. Liver disease and kidney disease can also cause edema.
When patients have edema, it may be difficult to move around due to swelling in the legs and difficulty breathing. You can order Burinex conveniently from your home at YouDrugstore..com.
