Answer

Diuretics, Potassium-Sparing

Diuretics may reduce flow to the ADH-sensitive distal nephron.

Amiloride

Amiloride is a potassium-sparing diuretic. Thus, the risk of hypokalemia is decreased when amiloride is used in combination with hydrochlorothiazide. In addition, the 2 agents are synergistic with respect to antidiuresis.
