Sudden discontinuation of the medications used to treat nephrogenic diabetes insipidus is not dangerous and will have no adverse effect other than

  1. an abrupt worsening of the diabetes insipidus and

  2. possible hyperkalemia (increase in serum potassium) if potassium supplements are not reduced to match the decrease on potassium loss.
