Tolvaptan is used to treat hyponatremia, which means there is not enough sodium in your blood. Patients with heart failure, liver problems (e.g., cirrhosis), and the syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone (SIADH) may have hyponatremia.
Sodium is a chemical that the body needs to be able to function well. If you have a low sodium blood level, your body will not function normally and you may not feel well. Tolvaptan works in the kidneys to help maintain the right amount of sodium for the body.
