    Edecrin is a brand of prescription medication used to treat edema in people with cancer, congestive heart failure, liver disease, or kidney disorders.

    Edecrin Information

    Edecrin dosage

    The Edecrin dosage will vary according to your doctor’s assessment. This evaluation may depend on age, weight, and medical conditions. The dosage will be determined based on fluid or electrolyte loss and the severity of fluid retention in a patient.

    It is available for oral use in the form of 25 mg tablets. The smallest dose to produce an effect is recommended. A dose of 25 to 100 mg by mouth once or twice a day is typically given.

    How Edecrin works

    It is an unsaturated ketone derivative of an aryloxy acetic acid. Edecrin works in your kidneys to increase the amount of urine you make.

    This decreases swelling by getting rid of extra water in your body. Edema, or swelling, is caused by different types of conditions. It is a loop diuretic that acts at the sodium chloride reabsorptive pump.

    This mechanism of action causes increased excretion of water, sodium, chlorine, magnesium, and calcium. Tye medicine works rapidly, usually within 30 minutes after taking it. The diuretic effect peaks in 2 hours and lasts for 6 to 8 hours.
