Methazolamide

Drug Info for methazolamide

Methazolamide is used to treat glaucoma (a condition in which increased pressure in the eye can lead to gradual loss of vision). Methazolamide is in a class of medications called carbonic anhydrase inhibitors. It works by decreasing the pressure in the eye.

Neptazane is used to treat high pressure inside the eye caused by certain types of glaucoma. It works by reducing the activity of carbonic anhydrase, a protein in your body. Lower amounts of carbonic anhydrase decreases the production of fluid inside the eye, helping to prevent blindness, vision loss, and nerve damage.
