is a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor and has been used for many relatively common disorders such as congestive heart failure, some forms of epilepsy glaucoma, IHH, and also for some rare diseases such as acute mountain sickness.
Compared with model group, ginsenoside Rg1 group, acetazolamide
treatment, and ginsenoside Rg1 plus acetazolamide
group all have significantly decreased EB content at each time point (p < 0.

The effect of rhodiola and acetazolamide
on the sleep architecture and blood oxygen saturation in men living at high altitude.
Treatment options for altitude headache include non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, aspirin, acetaminophen, and oxygen, with acetazolamide
and dexamethasone showing evidence for prevention (3).
(Diamox) has been demonstrated in well-designed clinical trials to reduce the symptoms of altitude sickness.
Treatment is mainly targeted at the underlying cause but may involve hemodialysis, aggressive fluid hydration, administration of dextrose and insulin, or administration of acetazolamide
The initial fundoscopic features were suggestive of a central retinal vein occlusion, and oral acetazolamide
250 mg 6-hourly and prednisone 60 mg/d were commenced.
There is evidence derived from small studies, but no large clinical trials, to support the use of acetazolamide
and theophylline in the treatment of central apnoea (121).
Kamala had tested positive for a diuretic called acetazolamide
in an out- of- competition test during a coaching camp in Bhopal in 2009.

An ophthalmologist made the diagnosis of pseudotumor cerebri and treated her with acetazolamide
and bilateral optic nerve sheath fenestrations.
