Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Xipamide acts on the kidneys in a similar manner to the thiazide diuretics, acting to reduce sodium reabsorption in the distal convoluted tubule. These drugs block the active reabsorption of chloride in the ascending loop of Henle by inhibiting the thiazide-sensitive sodium-chloride symporter, NCC (SLC12A3). This results in excretion of sodium, chloride and water, thus reducing fluid retention and oedema. At high concentrations xipamide can also inhibit carbonic anhydrases [1].
