Answer

Diuretics, Thiazide

Thiazide diuretics inhibit sodium and chloride reabsorption in the distal tubules of the kidney, resulting in increased urinary excretion of sodium and water.

Hydrochlorothiazide (Microzide)

Hydrochlorothiazide inhibits the reabsorption of sodium in distal tubules, causing increased excretion of sodium and water, as well as potassium and hydrogen ions.

Chlorthalidone (Diuril)

Chlorthalidone inhibits the reabsorption of sodium in distal tubules, causing increased excretion of sodium and water, as well as potassium and hydrogen ions.
