Torasemide (JAN) Indication

For the treatment of hypertension, edema induced by congestive heart failure or renal disease, and ascites associated with hepatic disease.

Torasemide (JAN) Pharmacology

Torasemide, a monosulfonamyl loop diuretic, differs form other thiazide diuretics in that a double ring system is incorporated into its structure. Torasemide is used alone or with atenolol in the management of hypertension and edema. Micropuncture studies in animals have shown that torsemide acts from within the lumen of the thick ascending portion of the loop of Henle, where it inhibits the Na+/K+/2Cl--carrier system.
