Glaucoma, altitude sickness and seizures Acetazolamide Diamox

Uses
Diamox (Acetazolamide) is prescribed to treat glaucoma, epilepsy and oedema (fluid retention). In some cases, it has been used for altitude sickness prevention. This drug is known as a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor, and it works by decreasing the action of carbonic anhydrase (a type of protein). When used for glaucoma, this medicine helps to reduce pressure inside the eye.

Dosage and Administration
Diamox (Acetazolamide) tablets are administered by mouth, in accordance with the instructions of your doctor. In some cases, the altitude sickness dosage prescribed by doctors has been 125mg to 250mg, taken every 6 to 12 hours. However, doctors usually recommend higher doses for rapid ascents, and in some cases, patients are directed to start taking the medicine 24 to 48 hours before ascending, and to continue treatment for 48 hours while remaining at a high altitude.

Patients taking this medicine for open angle glaucoma are sometimes prescribed a dose of 250mg, taken 1 to 4 times per day. The dosage for oedema, seizures and any other condition may be different, and all patients must strictly follow the dosage instructions given to them by their doctor.

Side effects
Patients who are taking Diamox (Acetazolamide) may sometimes experience side effects, such as:

  • Taste sensation changes
  • A ringing noise in the ears
  • Skin sensitivity to sunlight
  • A worsening of symptoms in people affected by gout
  • Problems related to blood sugar in diabetic patients

You should report any side effects that occur to your doctor. Seek medical attention immediately if you notice blood in your urine, pain when you are urinating, fever or any other symptoms of a severe reaction.

Precautions
Patients affected by Addison's disease or other medical conditions related to the adrenal gland, low potassium or sodium levels in the blood, hyperchloremic acidosis, kidney disease or liver disease are usually told that this drug is not suitable for them.

Regular blood tests will be required for patients who are taking this medicine on a long term basis.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Diamox (Acetazolamide) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.
