Overview

What is Torsemide?

Torsemide is a diuretic of the pyridine-sulfonylurea class. Its chemical name is 1-isopropyl-3-[(4--toluidino-3-pyridyl) sulfonyl] urea and its structural formula is:

Its molecular formula is CHNOS, its pKa is 7.1, and its molecular weight is 348.43.

Torsemide USP is a white to off-white crystalline powder. The tablets for oral administration also contain crospovidone, lactose monohydrate, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, and povidone.



What does Torsemide look like?



What are the available doses of Torsemide?

Tablets:  5 mg, 10 mg, 20 mg and 100 mg ()

What should I talk to my health care provider before I take Torsemide?

How should I use Torsemide?

Torsemide tablets are indicated for the treatment of edema associated with heart failure, renal disease or hepatic disease.

Edema associated with heart failure

The recommended initial dose is 10 mg or 20 mg oral torsemide tablets once daily. If the diuretic response is inadequate, titrate upward by approximately doubling until the desired diuretic response is obtained. Doses higher than 200 mg have not been adequately studied.

Edema associated with chronic renal failure

The recommended initial dose is 20 mg oral torsemide tablets once daily. If the diuretic response is inadequate, titrate upward by approximately doubling until the desired diuretic response is obtained. Doses higher than 200 mg have not been adequately studied.

Edema associated with hepatic cirrhosis

The recommended initial dose is 5 mg or 10 mg oral torsemide tablets once daily, administered together with an aldosterone antagonist or a potassium-sparing diuretic. If the diuretic response is inadequate, titrate upward by approximately doubling until the desired diuretic response is obtained. Doses higher than 40 mg have not been adequately studied in this population.

What should I look out for while using Torsemide?

Torsemide tablets are contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to torsemide or to povidone.

Torsemide tablets are contraindicated in patients who are anuric. Torsemide tablets are contraindicated in patients with hepatic coma.


What might happen if I take too much Torsemide?

The signs and symptoms of overdosage can be anticipated to include those of excessive pharmacologic effect: dehydration, hypovolemia, hypotension, hyponatremia, hypokalemia, hypochloremic alkalosis, and hemoconcentration. Treatment of overdosage should consist of fluid and electrolyte replacement.

Laboratory determinations of serum levels of torsemide and its metabolites are not widely available.

No data are available to suggest physiological maneuvers (e.g., maneuvers to change the pH of the urine) that might accelerate elimination of torsemide and its metabolites. Torsemide is not dialyzable, so hemodialysis will not accelerate elimination.

Clinical Information

Chemical Structure

Clinical Pharmacology

Micropuncture studies in animals have shown that torsemide acts from within the lumen of the thick ascending portion of the loop of Henle, where it inhibits the Na/K/2Cl-carrier system. Clinical pharmacology studies have confirmed this site of action in humans, and effects in other segments of the nephron have not been demonstrated. Diuretic activity thus correlates better with the rate of drug excretion in the urine than with the concentration in the blood.

Torsemide increases the urinary excretion of sodium, chloride, and water, but it does not significantly alter glomerular filtration rate, renal plasma flow, or acid-base balance.

Non-Clinical Toxicology
Torsemide tablets are contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to torsemide or to povidone.

Torsemide tablets are contraindicated in patients who are anuric. Torsemide tablets are contraindicated in patients with hepatic coma.

Because tetracyclines have been shown to depress plasma prothrombin activity, patients who are on anticoagulant therapy may require downward adjustment of their anticoagulant dosage.

Since bacteriostatic drugs may interfere with the bactericidal action of penicillin, it is advisable to avoid giving tetracyclines in conjunction with penicillin.

Absorption of tetracyclines is impaired by antacids containing aluminum, calcium, or magnesium, and iron-containing preparations.

Absorption of tetracyclines is impaired by bismuth subsalicylate.

Barbiturates, carbamazepine, and phenytoin decrease the half-life of doxycycline.

The concurrent use of tetracycline and Penthrane (methoxyflurane) has been reported to result in fatal renal toxicity.

Concurrent use of tetracycline may render oral contraceptives less effective.

Excessive diuresis may cause potentially symptomatic dehydration, blood volume reduction and hypotension and worsening renal function, including acute renal failure particularly in salt-depleted patients or those taking renin-angiotensin aldosterone inhibitors. Worsening of renal function can also occur with concomitant use of nephrotoxic drugs (e.g., aminoglycosides, cisplatin, and NSAIDs). Monitor volume status and renal function periodically.

The following risks are discussed in more detail in others sections:
