  A double-blind, crossover trial has compared the diuretic response of ten normal male subjects to the oral administration of frusemide (40 mg) and bumetanide (1 mg). Both drugs gave a similar profile, with acute onset and cessation of response, and a marked peak effect. There was no significant...
