Animal reproductive studies have shown that furosemide may cause fetal abnormality and the drug is contraindicated in pregnant animals.
Furosemide is contraindicated in anuria, furosemide hypersensitivity, hepatic coma, or during electrolytic imbalances.
Possible Side Effects:
Increased thirst and increased urination. Furosemide is associated with an increase in blood sugar levels.
