Drug Info for acetazolamide

Acetazolamide is used to treat glaucoma, a condition in which increased pressure in the eye can lead to gradual loss of vision. Acetazolamide decreases the pressure in the eye. Acetazolamide is also used to reduce the severity and duration of symptoms (upset stomach, headache, shortness of breath, dizziness, drowsiness, and fatigue) of altitude (mountain) sickness. Acetazolamide is used with other medicines to reduce edema (excess fluid retention) and to help control seizures in certain types of epilepsy. This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

Acetazolamide is a generic drug used to treat patients with glaucoma; it is also used to treat patients with epilepsy and edema. The average Acetazolamide price is about $138 for a supply of 60, 250 mg tablets.
