- Torsemide is very potent loop diuretic mainly used in the management of edema associated with congestive heart failure.
- It is also used at low doses for the management of hypertension. Compared with other loop diuretics, torsemide has a more prolonged diuretic effect than equipotent doses of furosemide and relatively decreased potassium loss.
- No evidence of torsemide-induced ototoxicity has been demonstrated in humans.
