Lasilactone (Frusemide/Spironolactone) is a medicine used to treat patients suffering from low potassium symptoms, fluid retention, and hyperaldosteronism. The two active ingredients of the medicine help it achieve its function by actively reducing the loss of potassium from the patient’s body as well as eliminating excess water and sodium levels and converting them into the urine. The medicine can also be prescribed to patients suffering from high blood pressure. Frusemide is the ingredient responsible for working on fluid retention and swelling; conditions that are common to patients who have experienced liver or heart-related conditions in the past. It helps the kidney eliminate all excess water and fluids in the body and convert them to urine. This medicine is only used to control these symptoms but not to cure the conditions.
