Answer

Diuretic agents

Conditions that cause edema may increase pressure in the carpal tunnel. Diuretics may be beneficial in reducing edema.

Hydrochlorothiazide (Microzide)

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