Summary of Clinical Use
Used to treat hypertension and oedema associated with congestive heart failure.
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Torsemide inhibits ion transport via the kidney-specific Na-K-Cl symporter SLC12A1. These transporters are located in the ascending loop of Henle and their inhibition results in increased water excretion.
