Samsca is a medicine for treating abnormally low levels of sodium in the blood in adults with a condition called ‘syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion’ (SIADH).
In SIADH, an excessive amount of the hormone vasopressin makes the patient produce less urine and thereby retain more water in the body, which dilutes the concentration of sodium in the blood.
Samsca contains the active substance tolvaptan.
