Therapeutic Indications for Acetazolamide 250mg Tablets

Acetazolamide Tablets 250 mg are indicated in the treatment of

  1. Glaucoma

Chronic simple (open angle) glaucoma, secondary glaucoma and perioperatively in acute angle closure glaucoma where delay of surgery is desired in order to lower intraocular pressure.  Acetazolamide acts on inflow, decreasing the amount of aqueous secretion.

  1. Abnormal retention of fluids

Acetazolamide acts on the reversible hydration of carbon dioxide and hydration of the carbonic acid reaction in the kidney resulting in renal loss of bicarbonate ion which carries out sodium, water and potassium.

It can be used in conjunction with other diuretics when effects on several segments of the nephron are desirable in the treatment of fluid retaining states.

  1. Epilepsy

When used in conjunction with other anticonvulsants best results have been seen in petit mal in children.  Good results have been seen in both children and adults with grand mal, mixed seizure patterns and myoclonic jerk patterns.
