Yes Lasix has sulfa & the specific uses of Lasix include:

* Controlling high blood pressure (hypertension)
* Treating water retention (edema) due to several causes, including congestive heart failure, cirrhosis, and kidney failure (renal failure).

For more accurate & professional info it is recommended to seek medical advice or talk to the pharmacist who would have prescribed the med., hope this helps?

Furosemide (lasix) is a loop diuretic which increases the urine flow greatly and helps the low functioning kidney in its function.
loop diuretics are the most efficacious of all diuretics and are effective in GFR as low as 5-15units(normal=125 units).
