What is the mechanism of action of althiazide ?
If dietary Na+ is reduced at the commencement of therapy, diuretics’ early impact to lower ECF volume is enhanced. This reduces the effects of the braking phenomenon, which is typical with long-term diuretic usage. 7 Some restriction in dietary Na+ intake may also be important to how diuretics persistently affect TPR. The initial volume contraction seen during the first few days of althiazide diuretic medication is hypothesised to cause changes in Na+/Ca2+ equilibrium in vascular smooth muscle cells.
