Patient Concerns

Frequently asked questions for Torsinex 10mg Injection

Frequently asked questions for Torasemide

Yes, Torsinex 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 Torsinex is contraindicated in patients with gout.
Q. How is Torsinex different from furosemide?
Both Torsinex 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, Torsinex works for a long time and is safe to use in patients with renal failure as compared to furosemide.
Torsinex 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 Torsinex.
Q. How is Torsinex different from chlorthalidone?
Both Torsinex and chlorthalidone are diuretics, however, they belong to different groups and act on different parts of the kidney. Chlorthalidone is less potent than Torsinex but has a better blood pressure lowering effect. Chlorthalidone increases calcium levels while Torsinex decreases calcium levels but both lower the blood potassium levels (hypokalemia).
Q. Can I use Torsinex with spironolactone?
Torsinex can be taken with spironolactone. When used together the diuretic effect gets added along with maintaining the blood potassium levels. Torsinex 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 Torsinex. Other commonly seen gastrointestinal side effects are the loss of appetite, upper abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and constipation.
Q. Can I take Torsinex with allopurinol?
Torsinex can be taken with allopurinol. Torsinex can increase uric acid levels and allopurinol lowers uric acid levels. So, allopurinol is given to decrease the hyperuricemic effects of Torsinex. However, allopurinol is not safe in patients with renal failure, so may need to be replaced with another similar medicine like febuxostat.
No, Torsinex should not be used if you have a history of sulfa allergy or to sulfonamide group of anti-diabetic drugs.
Torsinex can decrease weight by removing excessive water from your body. However, it is not used for weight loss in obese patients as it does not affect body fat.

It can decrease the blood potassium, sodium, chloride, magnesium, and calcium levels and increase blood sugar and uric acid levels. It is very important to get electrolytes and kidney function tests done on a regular basis while you are taking this medicine.
Torsinex is a safe drug if used in prescribed dose and for prescribed duration as advised by your doctor.
Torsinex is not known to cause hair loss. Consult your doctor if you have hair loss while you are taking Torsinex.

Torsinex can be taken with prednisone. However, when used together, they can lower blood potassium levels (hypokalemia) which can be severe, causing muscle pains or cramps, loss of appetite, weakness, dizziness, or confusion. Inform your doctor if you have these symptoms. Take potassium supplements or foods rich in potassium like orange, lemon or other citrus fruit.

Both Torsinex and metolazone are potassium-lowering diuretics. When given together, they can lower blood potassium level (hypokalemia) which can be severe, causing muscle pains or cramps, loss of appetite, weakness, dizziness, or confusion. Inform your doctor if you have these symptoms. Take potassium supplements or foods rich in potassium like orange, lemon or other citrus fruit.
