Bumex Information

Bumex Details (Brand and Generic) currently offers the brand Bumex from Canada also called Burinex manufactured by Knight Therapeutics Inc. The generic Bumetanide comes from the United Kingdom manufactured by a different manufacturer.


The brand Bumex is available in the strength of 1 mg and 5 mg tablets and the generic Bumetanide is available in the strength of 1 mg tablets.


Bumex (Bumetanide) is used to treat the swelling in your body that is caused by excess fluid in your tissues (edema) that happens as a result of congestive heart failure; liver disease (cirrhosis) or kidney disease, including nephrotic syndrome.

Take Bumex exactly as your doctor has told you. Patients with liver failure should use Bumex with caution. It may be necessary to adjust your dose. Follow your doctor’s instructions.
