Sodium is depleted most readily by diuretics cancer chemotherapeutic agents and steroids. Other drugs that can cause depletion are some antihypertensive drugs, antibiotics, and gout medications. Aspirin can deplete sodium as well.
Yes, diuretics like furosemide and hydrochlorothiazide can deplete sodium and they can be used to control high blood pressure but usually in tandem with other antihypertensives.
