Loop diuretics assist the kidneys in ridding the body of excess water and salt. They are primarily used to lower blood pressure and may be used to treat high blood pressure, heart failure, cirrhosis and edema. Loop diuretics help the kidneys pass out more fluid, alleviating fluid buildup and easing symptoms such as breathlessness or edema. Examples of loop diuretics include: Lasix (furosemide), bumetanide, Edecrin (ethacrynic) and Demadex (torsemide).
