Conivaptan

Also known as Vaprisol

Conivaptan (YM 087, brand name Vaprisol) is a non-peptide inhibitor of antidiuretic hormone (vasopressin receptor antagonist). It was approved in 2004 for hyponatremia (low blood sodium levels) caused by syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone (SIADH), and there is some evidence it may be effective in heart failure. It is marketed by Astellas Pharma Inc.
