Chronic amphetamine administration has been found to produce diuresis and polydipsia in rats. We have found that dapiprazole acutely suppresses the diuretic, but not the ingestive, effects of amphetamine. To see whether diuresis is the physiological stimulus driving amphetamine-mediated polydipsia, we injected rats daily with d,l-amphetamine and the alpha-1 adrenergic antagonist dapiprazole. Throughout 19 days of treatment, dapiprazole completely prevented the increased urine output produced by… Expand
