M2 Pill - Mylan's 20mg Furosemide
What is Mylan's M2 pill? What kind of medication
is the small round white pill with M2 index on the front side (the
reverse side is blank)?
Mylan's M2 pill is Furosemide 20mg
(generic for Lasix) - a loop diuretic used in the treatment of congestive
heart faillure, hypertension, edema, pulmonary edema, ascites, oliguria,
hypercalcernia, nonobstructive oliguria, and renal failure.
medication is also used in patients operated on for renal
transplantation. Each M2 pill contains 20mg Furosemide.
Furosemide prevents accomulating too much salt in the body, removing it
through urinary tracts. Each molecule of common salt (NaCl) binds about
twenty molecules of water in the body. Two much salt in the system
means water retention which in its turn means higher blood pressure,
excessive heart load, and harder work for the liver and kidneys. Making
you urinate more often, Furosemide reduces the amount of salt in your
system, removing excessive water and in this way lessening the load on
your cardiovascular system, the liver, and the kidneys.
However, too much urinating may cause dehydration and blood volume
reduction. It may cause circulatory collapse and/or vascular thrombosis
and embolism. When taking Furosemide (including Mylan's M2 formulation),
you should pay attention to any signs of liquid disbalance in your
body. Dry mouth, weakness or restlessness, hypotension, increased or
faulty heart beat - all these can mean that the dosage of the
medication should be changed, or the treatment discontinued. You are
strongly recommended to ask your doctor for advice about taking Mylan
M2 Furosemide and drinking water or consuming salt during treatment.
