Bumetanide (Bumex)

Bumetanide is a prescription medication primarily used to treat edema (fluid retention) caused by conditions such as heart failure or liver disease.  It belongs to a class of diuretics also known as water pills more specifically it is a loop diuretic.

Bumetanide increases the amount of urine produced which helps get rid of excess fluid in the body.

It does this by affecting the kidneys, particularly the loop of Henle, which is a part of the kidney where a lot of salt, water, and other small molecules are reabsorbed into the body. By inhibiting the reabsorption of sodium and chloride in this loop, bumetanide prevents water reabsorption and promotes the removal of excess fluid.

Bumetanide is used and approved for treatment for the following conditions:

  • Edema – Edema refers to the swelling caused by excess fluid trapped in the body’s tissues. It commonly occurs in the legs, ankles, and feet, and can also manifest in the lungs (pulmonary edema). Bumetanide is effective in treating edema because it helps the kidneys eliminate excess salt and water from the body. This reduction in fluid decreases the swelling and the associated discomfort.
  • High blood pressure (hypertension) – While bumetanide is not a primary treatment for high blood pressure, it can be used as an adjunct therapy. In individuals with hypertension, reducing the volume of fluid in the blood vessels can help lower blood pressure levels. Bumetanide can be particularly useful in patients with hypertension who also suffer from conditions like heart failure or kidney disease, where fluid retention contributes to elevated blood pressure.
  • Kidney problems – In kidney disorders such as chronic kidney disease, the kidneys may not be able to eliminate fluid efficiently, leading to fluid overload and swelling. Bumetanide can help manage this fluid retention.
  • Heart failure – Heart failure often leads to fluid buildup because a weakened heart is less effective at pumping blood, resulting in fluid retention in the lungs and extremities. Bumetanide helps relieve symptoms associated with heart failure, such as shortness of breath and swelling, by reducing the amount of fluid in the circulation. This decrease in fluid volume reduces the workload on the heart, helping to alleviate the symptoms of heart failure.

Bumetanide may also be used to treat other conditions not listed here.

Bumetine comes in oral tablets and an injectable form. Most commonly bumetanide is prescribed as oral tablets taken once a day. The exact dosage depends on the individual’s condition and response to the medication.

While taking bumetanide, it is important to follow the prescribed dosage and instructions given by a healthcare professional.

In the United States, bumetanide is available under the following brand names:
