Furosemide is a diuretic, otherwise known as a "water pill" It is to remove retained fluid from the body and prevent the body from absorbing too much salt. It is known as a "loop diuretic" and is often given in conjunction with potassium supplements (K+) because it flushes potassium from the body as well and the person can become low on potassium. Removing excess fluid can help decrease the burden on the heart muscle and it helps to lower blood pressure as well.
