No, fursosemide is a water pill (diuretic) otherwise known as lasix.

Fludrocortisone is a corticosteroid, that is used to help control the amount of sodium and fluids in your body. It is used to treat Addison's disease and syndromes where excessive amounts of sodium are lost in the urine. It works by decreasing the amount of sodium that is lost (excreted) in your urine. It is also used sometimes to raise blood pressure.
