Acetazolamide is used to rid the body of excess fluid, thus lowering blood pressure, eye pressure, and brain pressure, as well as reducing edema. Patients also buy Acetazolamide to treat a variety of seizure disorders.

Acetazolamide is the non-proprietary name for this product. More often patients buy Acetazolamide under its more widely-recognized names, including Diamox or Diacarb, among others. Available on the market since the 1950s, this product is also widely available as a generic.

How Acetazolamide Works

Acetazolamide is a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor, which suppresses activity of carbonic anhydrase in the kidneys. In simple terms, Diamox prevents reabsorption of various substances---including potassium and sodium---thus causing them to be excreted in urine, along with excess fluid. This action lowers blood, brain, and eye pressure, and rids the body of excess fluid. It also causes the blood to become acidic, which in turn causes increased inhalation, which increases oxygen and lowers carbon dioxide found in the blood.

Patients who have kidney impairment or low levels of potassium or sodium in the blood should not buy Acetazolamide.

Acetazolamide can be used in children---particularly to treat seizures---but they will require modified dosing based on weight, which a doctor can calculate.

Uses & Administration

Acetazolamide is available in tablets of 250 mg strengths. Tablets can be split, if needed, to acquire the ideal dosage. Tablets may be taken with or without food according to personal preference.

Patients often buy Acetazolamide to treat:

  • Open-angle glaucoma
  • Closed-angle glaucoma
  • Medication-induced edema
  • Heart failure-induced edema
  • Altitude sickness
  • Petit mal seizures
  • Grand mal seizures
  • Absence seizures
  • Other epilepsy

Patients who buy Acetazolamide for use as a diuretic---to rid the body of excess fluid---should be aware that many individuals quickly become tolerant of it if used daily. Dosing every other day, or for two days with a break on the third day, may mitigate this to some extent.

Treatment is individualized according to patient response and other factors. The following are rough guidelines; doctor instructions will likely vary to some extent and should be followed.

To treat glaucoma and seizures:

  • Take 250 mg to 1000 mg (1 g) per day.
  • Doses over 250 mg should be divided into smaller doses, taken throughout the day.
  • If taking anticonvulsants, dosage should start at 250 mg per day.
  • Do not exceed 1000 mg per day.

To treat edema:

  • Start with 250 mg to 375 mg taken in the morning.
  • This may work for some patients if taken every day.
  • Other patients will fail to lose edema fluid; rather than increase dosage, these patients should take the medication every other day, or for two days and then a break for the third day.
  • Treatment does not eliminate the need for other medications or other measures, such as bed rest or salt restriction.

To treat high-altitude sickness:

  • Take 500 mg to 1000 mg 24 to 28 hours prior to ascent.
  • Continue treatment for at least the next 48 hours.
  • Treatment may continue an additional few days if needed.

In all cases in which treatment continues for more than a week or two patients should attend regular doctor checkups to monitor for developing kidney issues or other adverse effects.
