INTRODUCTION

TORSID 20MG 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. It 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.

TORSID 20MG will be administered by a doctor or nurse. Your doctor will decide the dose and frequency depending on your condition. Before receiving this medicine, inform your doctor if you have liver, kidney or heart problems, pregnant or breastfeeding. The common side effects are dizziness, headache, nausea, and excessive urination.
