Answer

Antibiotics

Certain antibiotics may affect renal ADH action.

Demeclocycline (Declomycin)

Can cause insensitivity of distal renal tubules to the action of ADH and produce a nephrogenic diabetes insipidus. Effects are seen within 5 days and are reversed within 2-6 days following cessation of therapy.
