Diazoxide is a potassium channel activator, which causes local relaxation in smooth muscle by increasing membrane permeability to potassium ions. This switches off voltage-gated calcium ion channels which inhibits the generation of an action potential.

It is used as a vasodilator in the treatment of acute hypertension, and also to decrease the secretion of insulin in disease states such as insulinoma (a tumor producing insulin).
