Active ingredients: furosemide (frusemide)
What it is used for
Oedema: Frusemide-Claris Injection is indicated in adults, infants and children for the treatment of oedema associated with congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver and renal disease including the nephrotic syndrome. Frusemide is particularly useful when an agent with greater diuretic potential than that of those commonly employed is desired. Parenteral therapy should be reserved for patients unable to take oral medication or for patients in emergency clinical situations. Frusemide-Claris Injection is also indicated as adjunctive therapy in acute pulmonary oedema and cerebral oedema where intense and rapid onset is desired. If gastrointestinal absorption is impaired or oral medication is not practical for any reason, frusemide is indicated by the intravenous route. Parenteral use should be replaced with oral frusemide as soon as practical.
