pharmachologic effect


Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics


The mechanism of action is the binding of torasemide to the Na +, K + and Cl transportator, which is located in the membrane of the ascending loop of Henle. As a result, renal reabsorption of sodium and chlorine decreases, the osmotic pressure within the cell decreases and the reabsorption of water decreases.
This is a loop diuretic. Virtually does not affect the level of renal plasma flow, glomerular filtration and acid-base balance. Torasemide causes less hypokalemia, in comparison with furosemide, but shows more activity. Reduces systolic and diastolic pressure.
The diuretic effect is manifested after 1 hour, the maximum reaches 4-6 hours. In general, the effect of the drug Britoman continues up to 10 hours.


The drug Britomar has a prolonged action due to the gradual release of the active substance torasemide, which prevents a sharp decrease in its concentration in the blood. After taking the tablets for several days, bioavailability is 102%. Well absorbed from the digestive tract. Cmax in the blood is determined after 1.5 hours. About 99% of the drug binds to proteins. Metabolised in the liver with the formation of 3 metabolites, which are pharmacologically inactive. The half-life is 4 hours. Most of the drug is excreted by the kidneys.

Reviews about Britomar

Discussions on the forums about the use of the drug Britomar not, and reviews are also very rare. According to patients who took this drug, it does not work quickly, and the effect increases gradually day by day. This is due to the prolonged action of the drug.
When the dose is increased, there is often a side effect - dehydration (excessive fluid loss due to increased sodium excretion). This side effect is characteristic of all loop diuretics. In humans, this was manifested by a decrease in pressure with a sharp change in the position of the trunk, dizziness, fainting, palpitation, especially at night and in the morning. With a general dehydration, the turgor of the skin decreased, there was a pronounced dryness in the mouth. In this case, doctors recommended to cancel the drug, increase the amount of water consumed and table salt.
It is believed that the slow release form of the substance is more acceptable, because it limits human activity to a lesser extent, does not violate the habitual way of life and is suitable for long-term admission in outpatient settings. It is a soft drug with prolonged action and is well tolerated by patients, especially in cases where prolonged therapy is expected.
