Steady state absorption kinetics and pharmacodynamics of furosemide in congestive heart failure.

Furosemide, a potent loop diuretic, is commonly used in the treatment of congestive heart failure (CHF). Unpredictability in the diuretic effect following oral doses has been attributed to variable and incomplete absorption and to variability in the pharmacodynamic response to furosemide. The present study is undertaken to investigate the absorption… (More)
