About VAPTAN 15MG TABLET 7'S

VAPTAN 15MG TABLET 7'S belongs to a group of medicines called vasopressin V2 receptor antagonist used to treat hyponatremia (low levels of sodium) in patients with heart failure, liver disease and hormonal imbalances such as Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuretic Hormone (SIADH). Additionally, VAPTAN 15MG TABLET 7'S is also used to treat autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD).
 
VAPTAN 15MG TABLET 7'S contains ‘tolvaptan’ that works by blocking the effect of vasopressin, resulting in decreased water reabsorption, a net increase in free water excretion (aquaresis) and an increase in serum sodium concentrations. This decrease in free water is not associated with an increased excretion of sodium or potassium ions, the increase in serum sodium concentration is solely a result of  increased urine production
