Samsca Information

Samsca (Tolvaptan) is a prescription medication that reduces the level of a hormone which regulates the level of water and sodium in the body. High levels of this hormone can cause an imbalance that creates low sodium levels and fluid retention in the body. Samsca treats hyponatremia (low levels of sodium in the blood) in patients with heart failure and hormonal imbalances. Samsca improves urine flow without causing the body to loose excess sodium while urinating. Samsca belongs to the class of medication called vasopressin antagonists. This medication works by increasing the amount of urine you make, which causes your body to get rid of extra water, and this slowly increases the sodium in your blood to a normal level.

• Constipation;
