Diuretics. Potent diuretics
Torasemide acts as saluretic; its effect is associated with inhibiting renal absorption of sodium and chloride ions in the ascending limb of the loop of Henle. In humans, the diuretic effect quickly reaches its maximum in the first 2–3 hours after intravenous and oral administration, respectively, and remains stable for almost 12 hours.
Treatment of oedemas and/or effusions caused by heart failure if intravenous administration of the medicine is needed, e.g. in pulmonary oedema due to acute heart failure.
Adults. Treatment should be initiated with a single 2 ml dose of Torasemide-Darnitsa which is equivalent to 10 mg of torasemide per day. If the effect is insufficient, then the single dose can be increased to 4 ml of the medicine, which is equivalent to 20 mg of torasemide. If the effect is insufficient in this case, a daily dose of 8 ml of Torasemide-Darnitsa, which is equivalent to 40 mg of torasemide, can be used for not longer than 3 days.
