Cicletanine is a furopyridine low-ceiling diuretic drug, usually used in the treatment of hypertension.[1] The drug is manufactured by Ipsen and marketed by Recordati (in France) under the trade name Tenstaten.

It appears to be more potent in salt-sensitive hypertension.[2]

Mechanism[edit]

It can inhibit protein kinase C.[3]
