Pharmacy Author:
Medical and Pharmacy Editor:

When combined with other antihypertensive drugs there is an increased risk of low blood pressure or reduced kidney function.

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (for example., ibuprofen, indomethacin [Indocin, Indocin-SR]) may interfere with the blood pressure reducing effect of furosemide.

PREGNANCY: There are no adequate studies of furosemide in pregnant women.

NURSING MOTHERS: Furosemide is secreted in breast milk. Nursing mothers should avoid breastfeeding while taking furosemide.
