What is the Indication for BUMETANIDE

  • INDICATIONS AND USAGE Bumex tablets are indicated for the treatment of edema associated with congestive heart failure, hepatic and renal disease, including the nephrotic syndrome. Almost equal diuretic response occurs after oral and parenteral administration of bumetanide. Therefore, if impaired gastrointestinal absorption is suspected or oral administration is not practical, bumetanide should be given by the intramuscular or intravenous route. Successful treatment with Bumex tablets following instances of allergic reactions to furosemide suggests a lack of cross-sensitivity.
