It is a sort of "natural" drug, made of herbs and potassium gluconate, but I do not know an exact italian term.

diuretici


Explanation:
I have a feeling that in common parlance Italian employs words which are more "technical" than their English counterparts. Example: "pain killers" ma in italiano si dice comunemente "antidolorifici, analgesici"
"Binge eating" = bulimia.
The same, I believe, may apply to "water pills".
