39,091 females aged 76 (±5) who take Furosemide are studied.


Number of reports submitted per year:

Furosemide for a 76-year old woman.

Information of the patient in this study:

  • Age: 76
  • Gender: female
  • Conditions: Diabetes
  • Drugs taken:
    • Furosemide (furosemide)

eHealthMe real world results:

Comparison with this patient's adverse outcomes:

  • Skin Rash: 689 (1.76% of females aged 76 (±5) who take the drug)

As an adverse outcome could be a symptom of a condition, additional studies are listed to help identify the cause: for example, regardless of which drug is taken, how many female HBP patients aged 50 (±5) have nausea

As an adverse outcome could be a side effect of a drug, additional studies are listed to help identify the cause: for example, how many female Aspirin users aged 50 (±5) have nausea
