Buy Diamox brand or generic Acetazolamide prescription drug from Canada
Why is Diamox prescribed?
Diamox, with the generic name Acetazolamide, is used to decrease the pressure in the eye associated with glaucoma, which can lead to a gradual loss of vision. It is also used to control the symptoms of altitude or mountain sickness like shortness of breath, dizziness, drowsiness, fatigue, and upset stomach. It is also used along with other medications to manage certain types of seizures and reduce fluid retention.
What does it do?
Acetazolamide is classified under carbonic anhydrase inhibitors which reduces fluid production within the eye to decrease pressure in the eye. It also prevents the build-up of body fluids to reduce fluid retention (edema).
How should I take it?
Diamox is currently available as 125mg and 250mg tablets taken whole (not split, chewed, or crushed) by mouth with or without meals.
The dosage strength and frequency depend on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only take this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if taken properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, take it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never take two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before taking Diamox?
Diamox can cause dizziness, drowsiness, and changes in vision. Avoid driving or operating heavy machinery while taking this medication. Avoid the intake of alcohol as this can exacerbate the dizziness and drowsiness associated with the intake of this medication.
