Patients treated with the antiepileptic drug Oxcarbazepine often develop syndrome of inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone(SIADH)We want to test the hypothesis, that these patients have a higher reabsorption of water during the Aquaporine2 water channels,a higher concentration of Vasopressine (AVP), and a lower clearance of water.This situation will tend to normalize, when the patients are treated with fluid restriction

Condition Intervention Phase
Syndrome of Inappropriate ADH-secretion
Procedure: fluid restriction for 14 days (15ml fluid per kg weight)
Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Official Title: Urinary Aquaporine 2 in Patients With Syndrome of Inappropriate ADH-secretion Caused by Treatment With Antiepileptic Medicine
