Answer

Diuretics, Thiazide

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

Hydrochlorothiazide (Microzide)

Hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic that decreases urinary volume in the absence of ADH. It may induce mild volume depletion and cause proximal salt and water retention, thereby reducing flow to the ADH-sensitive distal nephron. Its effects are additive to those of other agents.
