Thiazide-like diuretic

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A thiazide-like diuretic is a sulfonamide diuretic that has similar physiological properties to a thiazide diuretic, but does not have the chemical properties of a thiazide, lacking the benzothiadiazine molecular structure.

Examples include metolazone.

Some, such as indapamide are considered thiazide-like diuretics, but do not necessarily have the same mechanism.[1]
