What is Desmopressin (DDAVP)?
Desmopressin, also known as DDAVP, is a synthetic hormone that mimics the actions of vasopressin, a natural hormone in the body. It primarily works by increasing water reabsorption in the kidneys, reducing urine production, and concentrating urine. This makes it useful for conditions like diabetes insipidus, with excessive urination and thirst. Additionally, desmopressin has a vasoconstrictive effect at higher doses, helping to reduce bleeding in certain bleeding disorders like hemophilia or von Willebrand disease by promoting the release of clotting factors.
