Acetazolamide (Diamox) is a weak diuretic belonging to the group of drugs called carbonic anhydrase inhibitors.
Often used to treat glaucoma but also given occasionally on private prescription to prevent Altitude Sickness. Its ability to acidify the blood increases ventilation of the lungs which in turn helps prevent altitude sickness from developing.
Often prescribed as 125mg to 250mg twice a day, or half to one tablet of Acetazolamide (Diamox 250mg tablets). This is usually given for one or two days before highest altitude is reached and continued for a further 3 days. This can be ordered either by using our Online Consultation Service or by sending in a private prescription.
Each tablet contains 250mg acetazolamide. Also contains dicalcium phosphate, corn starch, magnesium stearate, sodium starch glycolate, povidone.
Do not take Acetazolamide tablets if you know you are allergic to sulphonamides, sulphonamide derivatives including acetazolamide or to any of the ingredients inthe medicine. Avoid these tablets if you have severe liver problems, or have ever had severe liver problems, or if you have a particular type of glaucoma known as chronic non congestive angle closure glaucoma, or if you have reduced function of the adrenal glands, or if you have low blood levels of sodium and/or potassium or high blood levels of chlorine.
