INTRODUCTION

TORMAX 5 contains Torasemide which belongs to a group of medicines called diuretics. It is used to treat high blood pressure alone or in combination with other antihypertensive agents. This medicine has been found to be effective in treating edema associated with chronic renal and heart failure where a rapid onset of diuresis is required. Torsemide acts by inhibiting the sodium, potassium and chloride carrier system. It increases the urinary excretion of electrolytes such as sodium, chloride, and water thus increasing the amount of urine produced without significantly altering glomerular filtration rate, renal plasma flow or acid-base balance.

Take TORMAX 5 according to the dose and frequency as advised by your doctor. Swallow it as a whole. Do not chew, crush or break the medicine. Do not drive or operate machinery while taking this medicine, since it may cause dizziness. Before taking this medicine, inform your doctor if you have liver, kidney or heart problems. This medicine is not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding. The common side effects are headache, dizziness and constipation.
