Renal effects of metolazone (MET), a new diuretic agent, were compared with those of hydrochlorothiazide (HCT) in rats. MET in an oral dose of 0.01 approximately 0.5 mg/kg resulted in a dose-related increase in urine flow, sodium excretion and osmolal clearance in male rats. The natriuretic action of MET was not enhanced by administration of an increased dosage (1 approximately 5 mg/kg). Urinary excretion of potassium was significantly increased after MET, but was less than that of sodium… Expand
