Pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics of furosemide in man: a review.


The pharmacokinetics of furosemide and the attempt to correlate biological fluid measurements with diuretic response have been the subject of a large number of studies since the original reports of Hajd├║, Rupp, and coworkers in the mid-1960s. This article attempts to critically review these studies under seven different sections: furosemide pharmacokinetics in normal volunteers, furosemide pharmacokinetics in patients with decreased renal function, furosemide pharmacokinetics in patients with congestive heart failure, furosemide metabolism and assay methods, furosemide bioavailability, dose-response relationships, and the role of inhibitors and mediators on furosemide effects. The literature is reviewed through August 1978.
