Edecrin Details (Brand and Generic)

CanadaPharmacyOnline offers Edecrin and other diuretics at huge savings. We currently have the brand Edecrin from Canada manufactured by Bausch Health. The generic version of Edecrin is not available.


Edecrin tablets are available in the strength of 25 mg and Edecrin Powder for Solution is available in the strength of 50 mg/1 vial.


Edecrin (Ethacrynic acid) is a "water pill" (diuretic) that works in your kidneys to increase the amount of urine you make. This helps your body get rid of extra water. Edecrin prevents your body from absorbing too much salt, allowing the salt to instead be passed in your urine. This medication is used to decrease fluid retention (edema) caused by conditions such as congestive heart failure, liver disease, and kidney disease. This effect can help remove extra fluids to lessen symptoms such as trouble breathing and swelling in your ankles, feet, hands, or belly. Take this medication by mouth as directed by your doctor, usually once or twice a day after a meal. If you take this drug too close to bedtime, you may need to wake up to urinate. It is best to take this medication at least 4 hours before your bedtime. Edecrin will make you urinate more often and you may get dehydrated easily. Follow your doctor's instructions about using potassium supplements or getting enough salt and potassium in your diet. Edecrin is not approved for use by anyone younger than 18 years old.

Side Effects and Precautions

Stop using the medication and get medical care if you have an allergic reaction. Signs of an allergic reaction may include difficulty breathing, hives (rash on your body), swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat—If you experience any of these symptoms, please call 911 or seek emergency medical care at the nearest emergency room (ER).

The common Edecrin side effects may include dizziness, lightheadedness, weakness, muscle cramps, upset stomach, or diarrhea. Call your doctor right away if you have any of the serious side effects such as:
• Black/bloody stools;
• Confusion;
• Easy bleeding;
• Feeling of spinning;
• Serious loss of body water (dehydration) and salts/minerals;
• Stomach/abdominal pain;
• Signs of liver problems (such as nausea/vomiting, loss of appetite, yellowing eyes/skin, dark urine);
• Unusual decreased urination;
• Unusual dry mouth/thirst, fast/irregular heartbeat, or severe dizziness.

The above information is a summary and may not contain all the side effect information. If you still have questions about side effects, you should talk to your doctor or pharmacist so they can address all your concerns.
