TORLIS

Torsemide
TORLISTM is a loop diuretic (water pill) that is used to treat fluid retention (edema) in people with heart failure, liver disease, or kidney disease. TORLISTM is also used to treat
high blood pressure (hypertension). It lowers blood pressure by removing excess salt and water from your body. Lowering of blood pressure makes it easier for your heart to pump blood around your body and puts you at a lesser risk of having a heart attack or a stroke.

Description

COMPOSITION:
TORLISTM {Torsemide}- 5mg/10mg/ 20mg/ 40mg/ 100mg

MODE OF ACTION:
TORLISTM is part of the loop diuretics and thus, it acts by reducing the oxygen demand in the medullary thick ascending loop of Henle by inhibiting the Na+/K+/Cl- pump on the luminal cell membrane surface. This action is obtained by the binding of TORLISTM to a chloride ion-binding site of the transport molecule.TORLISTM is known to have an effect in the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system by inhibiting the downstream cascade after the activation of angiotensin II. This inhibition will produce a secondary effect marked by the reduction of the expression of
aldosterone synthase, TGF-B1 and thromboxane A2 and a reduction on the aldosterone receptor binding
