Furosemide 40 mg tablets are used as a water pill. They are under the class of drugs called diuretics. Diuretics help in the elimination or secretion of unwanted body fluids that causes serious effects in the body.

SASKATOON -- Hello from the CMA annual meeting, Canadian Medicine readers. We'll have plenty more coverage coming up later today, but in the meantime you can read what some other reporters are writing.
The CMA's new president, Anne Doig, is featured in a profile by André Picard. "I see my patients not getting as good of care as they could and should and I don't find that acceptable," she told him. "But I can't just sit in my office and grouse so I decided to act." [The Globe and Mail]
The Canadian Press's Jennifer Graham takes a look at Dr Doig's call for health-system overhaul. "We all agree that the system is imploding, we all agree that things are more precarious than perhaps Canadians realize," Dr Doig said. [Canadian Press] Ms Graham also discussed the anticipated second wave of the pandemic H1N1 flu with Dr Doig. [Canadian Press]
Local reporter Jason Warick previewed federal health minister Leona Aglukkaq's speech to the CMA General Council, scheduled for this morning. She plans to discuss the radioisotope-shortage crisis and the H1N1 flu. [Saskatoon StarPhoenix]
The Toronto Star praises Dr Doig for what the paper's editorial board considers to be her break with the activist pattern established by Brian Day and Robert Ouellet over the last two years. "With new leadership, the CMA has an opportunity to put its considerable resources toward seeking improvements within the public system." [Toronto Star]
Konrad Yakabuski cautions Canadian politicians that healthcare reform here could be as difficult to accomplish as it's proven to be in the United States over recent years, and suggests that alternative models of physician compensation should be on the table. [The Globe and Mail]
And don't forget to read Canadian Medicine's Q&As with outgoing president Robert Ouellet and new boss Anne Doig, published today.
