Answer

Asymptomatic patients with chronic SIADH, the principal options are fluid restriction and V2 receptor antagonists (see Acute Setting). If V2 receptor antagonists are not available or if local experience with these agents is very limited, other therapeutic modalities include chronic loop diuretics with increased salt intake, urea, mannitol, and demeclocycline.
