What Is Bumex (Bumetanide)?

Bumex is the generic name for Bumetanide, which is a water pill (diuretic) that helps your body get rid of extra fluid and salt. It helps your body produce more urine to relieve swelling in your legs, belly, or arms caused by things like kidney disease, heart failure, or liver disease.

You will need to urinate more than usual, but that means your body is getting rid of the excess fluid that was otherwise building up in your body.

How Does Bumex Work?

Bumex helps prevent your kidneys from reabsorbing too much sodium and fluid. This results in increased urination to remove excess fluid from the body. This can help relieve painful swelling caused by water retention due to certain health conditions related to your heart, kidneys, or liver.

What is the Typical Dosage of Bumex?

Bumex is usually given at a dose of 0.5-2mg once a day. Doses may also be taken throughout the day, increased as high as 10 mg, or taken every other day.

Be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions carefully when you take Bumex to avoid overdosing or not taking enough medication. Your dosage may also change over time as you and your doctor see how your body reacts to the medication.

What are the Benefits of Bumex?

Bumex helps relieve and prevent edema (fluid retention) in people with certain health conditions like liver disease, kidney disorders, or congestive heart failure. Getting rid of extra fluid in the body can help relieve shortness of breath and swelling in the arms, legs, or abdomen.
