The active ingredient in Burinex is generic bumetanide, which is part of the family of drugs called diuretics, specifically loop diuretics. Burinex removes excess water from your body which has abnormally accumulated and is causing symptoms such as swelling of the ankles and shortness of breath.
Edema may occur in patients with congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver and renal disease including nephrotic syndrome. Burinex helps to remove water from the bloodstream and relieve symptoms like wheezing and swelling of the ankles.
Burinex is called a loop diuretic because it acts on the cells in the loop of Henle which is located in the kidney. Loop diuretics decrease sodium, chloride and potassium reabsorption in the kidneys and as a result, get rid of excess water in your body.
Burinex is a potent diuretic, so doses are individualized for each patient. Your doctor will carefully monitor your response to this mdication. Your doctor will prescribe the appropriate starting dose for you. For continued control of edema, an intermittent dose schedule, with rest periods of one to two days, is recommended as the safest and most effective method.
In patients with pre-existing liver disease, encephalopathy may occur. Common side effects may include:
These may not be all the side effects of Burinex 5mg.
Do not take Burinex if you have a condition called anuria (the inability to urinate), have severe electrolyte depletion, or are hypersensitive to bumetanide and other sulfonamide derivatives.
Excessive doses, or using Burinex too frequently, can lead to profound water loss, electrolyte depletion, dehydration, reduction in blood volume and circulatory collapse with a possibility of vascular thrombosis and embolism. These are particular concerns in elderly patients taking this medication.
Keep the Burinex blister pack of tablets inside the outer box and protect it from light. Store it at room temperature.
For people with heart failure, the pumping action of the heart is not strong enough to circulate the blood around your body. This may cause fluid to build up in areas like your legs and lungs. Symptoms may include swollen ankles, feeling bloated, shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing. Severe leg edema may lead to skin ulcers. Edema can also occur as a result of cirrhosis of the liver and kidney disease.
