Diamox (acetazolamide) is a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor. Carbonic anhydrase is a protein in your body. Acetazolamide reduces the activity of this protein.
Acetazolamide is used to treat glaucoma and to treat and to prevent acute mountain sickness (altitude sickness). It is also used as a part of some treatment plans for congestive heart failure and seizure disorders.
Diamox is made by DURAMED PHARMS BARR INC.
It might be a good idea to contact them to see if they have any patient assistance programs.
