Acetazolamide ( the trade name Diamox) is a diuretic, which helps the body remove excess fluids by telling it to produce more urine. The drug is also a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor, which generally means that it helps the body remove carbonic acid from the blood. In glaucoma, damage to the optic nerve occurs due to pressure from fluid build up in the eye. Thus, Diamox works by helping to remove that excess fluid build up and relieve the pressure.
Acetazolamide is also used to treat a number of different disorders, including epilepsy, edema, altitude sickness, and sleep apnea. In altitude sickness, Acetazolamide can help relieve headaches, tiredness, nausea, dizziness, and the shortness of breath that can result from going to a high altitude too fast. If you have received a prescription, you can buy Diamox online from Canada at YouDrugstore. Order today and find relief.
For open-angle glaucoma it is regularly recommended you take Acetazolamide 1 to 4 times daily. For closed-angle glaucoma it is recommended to take this drug every 2 to 4 hours daily, but do not take more than 1 g a day. To help prevent epileptic seizures, the recommended dose is much less, around 8 to 30 mg a day. In the case of edema, a single 250 mg Acetazolamide tablet a day is normal, but you should skip every second or third day in order to prevent kidney issues. For altitude sickness (mountain sickness) it is normal to take a tablet every 6 to 12 hours until symptoms resolve.
Long term effects include damage to the kidneys and liver. Speak to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns.
