Patient Concerns

Frequently asked questions for Dyloop 20mg Tablet

Frequently asked questions for Torasemide

Yes, Dyloop can cause gout. It increases the blood uric acid levels by increasing its absorption from the kidneys which can cause a gout attack. Inform your doctor if you have hyperuricemia or a history of gout before taking this medicine. Use of Dyloop is contraindicated in patients with gout.
Q. How is Dyloop different from furosemide?
Both Dyloop and furosemide are loop diuretics and are used to treat high blood pressure and edema caused by underlying liver, kidney or lung diseases but Furosemide is also used in the treatment of hypercalcemia (high calcium levels in the blood). However, Dyloop works for a long time and is safe to use in patients with renal failure as compared to furosemide.
Dyloop can increase your blood sugar levels. This can worsen your diabetes control and affect your blood and urine sugar tests. Inform your doctor if you are a diabetic before taking Dyloop.
Q. How is Dyloop different from chlorthalidone?
Both Dyloop and chlorthalidone are diuretics, however, they belong to different groups and act on different parts of the kidney. Chlorthalidone is less potent than Dyloop but has a better blood pressure lowering effect. Chlorthalidone increases calcium levels while Dyloop decreases calcium levels but both lower the blood potassium levels (hypokalemia).
Q. Can I use Dyloop with spironolactone?
Dyloop can be taken with spironolactone. When used together the diuretic effect gets added along with maintaining the blood potassium levels. Dyloop is a loop diuretic and causes loss of potassium from your body while Spironolactone is a potassium-sparing diuretic which prevents the loss of potassium.
Diarrhea is a common side effect of Dyloop. Other commonly seen gastrointestinal side effects are the loss of appetite, upper abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and constipation.
Q. Can I take Dyloop with allopurinol?
Dyloop can be taken with allopurinol. Dyloop can increase uric acid levels and allopurinol lowers uric acid levels. So, allopurinol is given to decrease the hyperuricemic effects of Dyloop. However, allopurinol is not safe in patients with renal failure, so may need to be replaced with another similar medicine like febuxostat.
No, Dyloop should not be used if you have a history of sulfa allergy or to sulfonamide group of anti-diabetic drugs.
