Summary of Clinical Use
Cyclopenthiazide acts as a diuretic.
This drug is not approved by the US FDA. In the UK it is approved as a component of the fixed-dose medication Navispare® which also contains amiloride (in use since 2006) hydrochloride. Other national approval agencies may have granted marketing authorisation.
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Thiazide diuretics block the active reabsorption of chloride in the ascending loop of Henle by inhibiting the thiazide-sensitive sodium-chloride symporter, SLC12A3. This results in excretion of sodium, chloride and water, thus reducing fluid retention and oedema.
