Diamox is an FDA-approved medication used to treat certain types of glaucoma, congestive heart failure, certain types of seizures. Diamox also prevents altitude sickness.
Other names for this medication:
Also known as: Acetazolamide.
Diamox contains an active ingredient Acetazolamide, which belongs to class of drugs called carbonic anhydrase inhibitors.
Diamox effectively treats certain types of glaucoma (excessive pressure in the eyes) by reducing the amount of fluid in the eye, and thereby decreases pressure inside the eye.
Acetazolamide acts also as a diuretic ("water pill") and inhibits the protein in the body called carbonic anhydrase. This leads to reducing the build-up of certain fluids in the body, significantly alleviating the symptoms of congestive heart failure.
Acetazolamide is also used to treat certain types of seizures, and to treat or prevent altitude sickness.
Diamox is available in tablets.
The dosage depends on the disease and its prescribed treatmen.
250 mg to 1 gram per 24 hours in 2 or more smaller doses.
In secondary glaucoma and before surgery in acute congestive (closed-angle) glaucoma, the usual dosage is 250 mg every 4 hours or, in some cases, 250 mg twice a day.
The daily dosage is 8 to 30 mg per 2.2 pounds of body weight in 2 or more doses. Typical dosage may range from 375 to 1,000 mg per day.
Congestive Heart Failure treatment:
The usual dosage is 250 mg to 375 mg per day or 5 mg per 2.2 pounds of body weight, taken in the morning.
Diamox can be used by children.
If you want to achieve most effective results do not stop taking Diamox suddenly.
If you overdose Diamox and you don't feel good you should visit your doctor or health care provider immediately.
Store at room temperature between 20 and 25 degrees C (68 and 77 degrees F) away from moisture and heat. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of the reach of children.

The authors describe two cases of idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) during pregnancy. The first case was discovered in a 21-year-old primigravida at 15 weeks gestation and thereafter six evacuation lumbar punctures were necessary, and a treatment by acetazolamide, 1000mg/day, was prescribed until parturition. Labor was induced at 37 weeks for intrauterine growth retardation associated with oligohydramnios. The second patient, a 38-year-old tertigravida primipara presented clinical signs of IIH at 28 weeks gestation in the context of preterm labour after a suicide attempt by massive ingestion of venlafaxine. She was given an evacuation lumbar puncture and went into labour at 29 weeks, after tocolysis failure. The diagnosis of IIH is to be done only by exclusion, in front of a normal biological composition of the spinal fluid at lumbar puncture with increased opening pressure, and after a brain imaging excluding any expansive intracranial process or hydrocephaly. Obstetrical prognosis is usually favourable. The main complication of this pathology resides in the ocular impact. Outside pregnancy the risk factors of IIH which have been evoked are polycystic ovary syndromes and blood coagulation anomalies as thrombophilia or hypofibrinolysis. Treatment of this pathology should be medical in the first instance and surgical only in the case of resistance or for severe ocular involvement.
Carbonic anhydrase (CA) activity was assayed in lysed erythrocytes and in branchial cytoplasm, mitochondria and microsomes of the channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus. Branchial CA activity was highest in the cytoplasmic fraction, but activity was very low in mitochondria and microsomes. Erythrocyte CA activity was over four-fold greater than that in the gills. Intact animals were injected with the CA inhibitors acetazolamide and benzolamide. Slow, intra-arterial injection of both inhibitors elicited transient side effects of apnoea, bradycardia and hypoxaemia. Acetazolamide and benzolamide induced a mixed but primarily respiratory acidosis. The onset and the time course of the acidosis were correlated with the inhibition of erythrocyte CA; acetazolamide acted faster because it is more freely diffusible than benzolamide. The acid-base disturbance in the blood reached its maximum after 2 h; compensation was delayed until 24 h, when CA inhibition began to disappear. We conclude from these results that there is very little, if any, membrane-associated CA in the gill, and that the branchial enzyme is not quantitatively important in directly converting plasma HCO3- to CO2 for excretion. Rather, CO2 excretion is accomplished via the traditional chloride shift, followed by intracellular dehydration of HCO3- by erythrocyte CA. These results also suggest that branchial cytoplasmic CA inhibition might impair ion transport processes that are used to compensate blood acid-base disturbances and thus delay compensation of the respiratory acidosis.
The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) efflux kinetics of methotrexate (MTX) were studied in three patients with indwelling Ommaya reservoirs. A small dose of MTX was injected intraventricularly several hr after the start of a high-dose continuous i.v. infusion of MTX. In all patients, the CSF antifolate concentration returned to the preinjection level before the end of the i.v. infusion. This result indicated that the efflux of MTX from CSF in humans is independent of plasma drug concentrations. Efflux kinetics were further characterized in one patient. Serially obtained CSF samples after intraventricular injections demonstrated a biphasic disappearance curve with alpha- and beta-phase half-disappearance times of 1.7 and 6.6 hr, respectively. Prolongation of the beta-phase half-time was associated with oral acetazolamide medication and with increased intracranial pressure, indicating that inhibition of CSF production slows MTX clearance. CSF MTX concentration, however, declined more rapidly than that of simultaneously administered diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid, an extracellular marker substance excreted by bulk flow, indicating that bulk flow excretion alone is insufficient to account for MTX efflux from human CSF. Evidence that there is an active transport component was provided by probenecid pretreatment which also prolonged the CSF MTX half-life. These findings suggest that both passive and active mechanisms govern MTX efflux from the CSF in humans and that they can be inhibited by acetazolamide and probenecid, respectively.

The carbonic anhydrase (CA) enzyme family consists of thirteen active isozymes in mammals. The most recently characterized members of this family are cytosolic CA XIII and membrane-bound CA XV. This article describes recent advances in the CA family, especially CA XIII and XV. We have also included catalytic activity data on human CA XIII and mouse CA XV. Additionally, the inhibition constants of acetazolamide toward these isozymes were determined to be k(cat) = 1.5 x 10(5) s(-1), k(cat)/K(M) = 1.1 x 10(7) M(-1) s(-1) and K(I) = 16 nM for human CA XIII and k(cat) = 4.7 x 10(5) s(-1), k(cat)/K(M) = 3.3 x 10(7) M(-1) s(-1) and K(I) = 72 nM for mouse CA XV. Although the activity of CA XIII is the second lowest reported thus far for any of the human CAs, it may have a role in maintaining the acid-base balance in the kidney and the gastrointestinal and reproductive tracts. CA XV is an exceptional enzyme, as it seems to be active in numerous species, such as rodents, birds and fish, but is absent from humans and chimpanzees. Mouse CA XV is a moderately active enzyme, suggesting that it may play a physiological role at least in the kidney. It is likely that other isozymes have substituted for this protein in humans. In addition to the novel data on CA XIII and XV, we present the catalytic activities as well as inhibition constants of acetazolamide for all mammalian CA isozymes in this review.

The authors describe "iris-assisted," open-sky, continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis (CCC) in a triple procedure combining corneal transplantation, cataract extraction, and intraocular lens implantation. They do not use miotics or mydriatics. Patients receive oral acetazolamide (250 mg), intravenous mannitol (5 mL/kg), and Honan balloon at 30 mm Hg for 20 to 30 minutes before surgery. After trephination and excision of recipient cornea, the pupil assumes a mid-dilated position. After injection of 2.3% hyaluronic acid into the anterior chamber, a central linear incision is made in the anterior capsule using a cystotome needle and a CCC is made (approximately 5.5 mm) along the pupillary margin with CCC forceps. The mid-dilated iris can "assist" by resisting posterior pressure to reduce the risk of capsular extension. The nucleus passes through the capsulorhexis following hydrodissection. The keratoplasty is completed followed by cortex removal and in-the-bag intraocular lens implantation, which are facilitated by the CCC in a closed system.

We measure and, for the first time, theoretically predict four prototypical aqueous-drug diffusion coefficients in five soft-contact-lens material hydrogels where solute-specific adsorption is pronounced. Two-photon fluorescence confocal microscopy and UV/Vis-absorption spectrophotometry assess transient solute concentration profiles and concentration histories, respectively. Diffusion coefficients are obtained for acetazolamide, riboflavin, sodium fluorescein, and theophylline in 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate/methacrylic acid (HEMA/MAA) copolymer hydrogels as functions of composition, equilibrium water content (30-90%), and aqueous pH (2 and 7.4). At pH2, MAA chains are nonionic, whereas at pH7.4, MAA chains are anionic (pKa≈5.2). All studied prototypical drugs specifically interact with HEMA and nonionic MAA (at pH2) moieties. Conversely, none of the prototypical drugs adsorb specifically to anionic MAA (at pH7.4) chains. As expected, diffusivities of adsorbing solutes are significantly diminished by specific interactions with hydrogel strands. Despite similar solute size, relative diffusion coefficients in the hydrogels span several orders of magnitude because of varying degrees of solute interactions with hydrogel-polymer chains. To provide a theoretical framework for the new diffusion data, we apply an effective-medium model extended for solute-specific interactions with hydrogel copolymer strands. Sorptive-diffusion kinetics is successfully described by local equilibrium and Henry's law. All necessary parameters are determined independently. Predicted diffusivities are in good agreement with experiment.

The primary care physician is often called on to treat ocular emergencies. Two such injuries --chemical burns and traumatic central retinal artery occlusion --call for quick action and immediate referral. The evaluation of other injuries should proceed in logical order, beginning with the lids and proceeding to the pupils, globe, and retina and optic nerve. This systematic evaluation allows the examiner to identify patients who need referral to an ophthalmologist. Minor injuries can be safely treated by following the guidelines given.

Response rate was 70%. Of 32 respondents, 72% evaluated 10 or fewer adults per year, usually referred by a neurologist within their referral pattern. Fifteen (47%) respondents reported that the disease had a bilateral occurrence between 50% and 75% of the time. Most respondents (88%) reported that fewer than 25% of their patients had a previous surgery for the disease. Symptomatology (91%) was the criterion to recommend surgery. Nineteen (59%) respondents regularly assessed cerebrovascular reserve by the addition of acetazolamide challenge to their imaging method of choice, typically single photon emission computed tomography. Treatment was antiplatelets (55%) in asymptomatic adults and superficial temporal artery-to-middle cerebral artery bypass for >75% of symptomatic patients, as assessed by 48% of respondents. Yearly follow-up included cerebral angiography for both superficial temporal artery-to-middle cerebral artery bypass and indirect revascularization.

The diffusion of acetazolamide from buffered saline and buffered albumin solutions into human erythrocytes has been characterized. A model was developed for describing the effects of both intra- and extracellular binding on the approach to distributional equilibrium. Unbound acetazolamide entered the cells via an apparent first-order process at a rate that was unaffected by salicylate at a therapeutic concentration of 200 micrograms/mL. Salicylate concentrations ranging from approximately 100 to 400 micrograms/mL, were, however, extremely effective in displacing acetazolamide from its serum protein binding sites. Free fractions of acetazolamide in human serum were found to increase by an order of magnitude as salicylate concentrations approached 400 micrograms/mL, thereby greatly increasing the concentration of unbound drug available for passive diffusion into cells. The results indicate that while competitive binding effects, which may alter unbound drug concentration-time profiles and potentially impact on toxicity, do occur, alterations in red cell membrane permeability, which could adversely affect carbon dioxide transport, are not of significance.
A 24-year-old woman consulted the headache clinic because of frequent paroxysmal attacks of strong sensoriphobia, digestive signs, moderate ataxia and a need to lie in the dark, without any headache. The symptoms had begun in infancy and the patient had been treated for hysteria, then for epilepsy. As she had some typical features of episodic ataxia type 2, an analysis of CACNA1A gene was performed and demonstrated a novel c3995 + 1G>A mutation. The same mutation was also discovered in her young son, who had an ataxia of unknown origin. Both remarkably improved under acetazolamide.

Usually the topical delivery of ocular drugs poses a great challenge. Accordingly, the work in this study comprised the use of different hybrids of generally regarded as safe (GRAS) oils and surfactants in order to develop and optimize novel acetazolamide (AZD) entrapped-vesicular systems aiming at improving its ocular delivery and reaching better therapeutic outcomes in the treatment of glaucoma. The phospholipid/cholesterol bilayer of the vesicles was enriched with hybrids of Tween 80, Labrasol, Transcutol and Labrafac lipophile WL in different masses and proportions according to a mixture design viz. D-optimal mixture design. Three models were generated comprising three responses: particles size, percentage of entrapment efficiency and amount of drug released after 24 hours (Q24h). The results demonstrated the ability of the penetration enhancing hybrids in modulating the three responses compared to the conventional liposomes. Transmission electron microscope was used to characterize the selected formulations. Sterilization of selected formulations was carried out using gamma radiation and the effect of gamma radiations on entrapment, particle size and in vitro release were studied. The selected sterilized formulations were tested in-vivo on the eyes of albino rabbits in order to evaluate the efficiency of the novel delivery systems on the intra-ocular pressure reduction (IOP) compared to drug solution and the conventional liposomes. The novel formulations proved their efficiency in reducing the IOP to lower values compared to the conventional liposomes, which pose new successful platform for ocular delivery of AZD and other anti-glaucoma drug analogs.

A carbonic anhydrase (CA, EC 18.104.22.168) belonging to the γ-class has been cloned, purified and characterized from the Antarctic cyanobacterium Nostoc commune. The enzyme showed a good catalytic activity for the physiologic reaction (hydration of carbon dioxide to bicarbonate and a proton) with the following kinetic parameters, kcat of 9.5×10(5)s(-1) and kcat/KM of 8.3×10(7)M(-1)s(-1), being the γ-CA with the highest catalytic activity described so far. A range of aromatic/heterocyclic sulfonamides and one sulfamate were investigated as inhibitors of the new enzyme, denominated here NcoCA. The best NcoCA inhibitors were some sulfonylated sulfanilamide derivatives possessing elongated molecules, aminobenzolamide, acetazolamide, benzolamide, dorzolamide, brinzolamide and topiramate, which showed inhibition constants in the range of 40.3-92.3nM. As 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RubisCO) and γ-CAs are closely associated in carboxysomes of cyanobacteria for enhancing the affinity of RubisCO for CO2 and the efficiency of photosynthesis, investigation of this new enzyme and its affinity for modulators of its activity may bring new insights in these crucial processes.

In some asthmatics deep inspiration causes a sustained bronchoconstration, which is dependent on Ca2+ uptake. Inhaled diuretics protect against bronchoconstriction induced by a variety of indirect stimuli, by inhibiting the ionic fluxes involving Ca2+ uptake across the cell membrane of airway epithelium. The aim of this study was therefore to investigate the protective effect of inhaled furosemide on the bronchoconstriction induced by deep inspiration in asthma and to compare it with the effect of acetazolamide, an inhibitor of carbonic anhydrase devoid of effect on ion cotransport but possessing inhibitory effects on chloride ion influx and Na+/K+ exchange. The study was carried out on three different study days according to a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover design. Nine non smoking asthmatic subjects first performed a series of 9 controlled deep inspirations to TLC followed by forced expirations to RV within 20 min, which caused a decrease of FEV1 > 20% from baseline. Two hours later, the subjects inhaled either furosemide (40 mg), or acetazolamide (500 mg), or saline (placebo) in random order, and then two more deep-inspiration challenges were performed after 30 and 140 mins. The progressive percent decrement of FEV1 caused by deep-inspiration challenge was taken as an index of bronchoconstriction. Bronchoconstriction was significantly blunted at 30 mins, but not 140 mins, after inhaling furosemide (p < 0.01) or acetazolamide (p < 0.05) compared to control. We interpret these results as due to a modulation of ionic fluxes across the smooth muscle cell membrane afforded by inhaled furosemide and acetazolamide.

In late proximal tubules volume reabsorption linked to passive ion flows relies on the existence of differing permeability coefficients to Cl- and HCO3(-) (PCl greater than PHCO3). We measured these permeability coefficients in late segments of rabbit superficial (SFPCT) and juxtamedullary (JMPCT) proximal convoluted tubules perfused in vitro. PHCO3 and P36Cl were determined in tubules bathed in rabbit serum and perfused with a serum ultrafiltrated titrated with H2SO4 to [HCO3(-)] of 4 mM. Active transport, transepithelial voltage, and HCO3(-) reabsorption were inhibited by cooling (21 degrees C) and 10(-4) M acetazolamide. P36Cl and PHCO3 were calculated from 36Cl disappearance from and total CO2 addition to the perfusate. P36Cl in SFPCT was twice that in JMPCT but PHCO3 was the same in both segments. P36Cl exceeded PHCO3 only in SFPCT. To exclude exchange diffusion from contributing to P36Cl, additional tubules were perfused with ultrafiltrate titrated with HCl.P36Cl and simultaneously measured PCl (lumen-to-bath net chemical Cl- flux) were identical. We conclude: 1) SFPCT and JMPCT are heterogeneous with respect to Cl- permeability; 2) relative Cl--to-HCO3(-) permeabilities predict that anion gradients present in late portions of proximal tubules would support more volume reabsorption linked to passive ion flows in SF than in JMPCT; 3) no significant Cl- exchange diffusion exists in proximal tubules.

Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy(1H-MRS) has less been used to analyze cerebral metabolism in ischemic lesions compared to single photon emission computed tomography or positron emission computed tomography. Recent advances in magnetic resonance imaging apparatus and the related software have made possible obtaining multi-voxel 1H-MRS in a single study. We examined multi-voxel 1H-MRS in patients with unilateral internal carotid artery(ICA) occlusion to study the relationship between cerebral metabolism and cerebral blood flow. Fifteen patients(male 11; female 4, 47-76; average 67.1 year-old) with chronic unilateral ICA occlusion and without any marked infarction were studied. 1H-MRS was obtained using a 1.5 T Siemens Magnetom Vision scanner. Multi-voxel spectra were recorded using a SE-2 D-CSI sequence(TR/TE = 1500/135 ms). The volume of interest was 90 x 90 x 20 mm3, placed axially above the lateral ventricle. The single voxel size was 10 x 10 x 20 mm3. N-acetyl aspartate/creatine ratios(NAA/Cr) were calculated on each voxel and were averaged in view of the cortex and the white matter. The regional cerebral blood flow(CBF) was measured by Xenon-CT method. Eight patients were also examined by acetazolamide challenge to evaluate the cerebrovascular reserve capacity. NAA/Cr ratios in normal subjects were 1.905 +/- 0.090(mean +/- standard deviation) in the cortex and 2.183 +/- 0.258 in the white matter in 40's(n = 6), 2.046 +/- 0.166 in the cortex and 2.039 +/- 0.288 in the white matter in 60's(n = 5). The study revealed 7 patients with normal NAA/Cr ratio and CBF, 5 with reduced NAA/Cr ratio and normal CBF, and 3 with reduced NAA/Cr ratio and CBF in the affected cortex. A low correlation coefficient of 0.46 was noted between NAA/Cr ratio and the cerebrovascular reserve capacity calculated by acetazolamide challenge in the affected cortex. In the range of less than +10%(lower limit) in percentile change of regional CBF after acetazolamide injection, NAA/Cr ratio was distributed between 1.600 and 2.044, which were normal or slightly under the lower limit(mean-2 x standard deviation). Multi-voxel 1H-MRS is useful for the evaluation of cerebral metabolism, because it enables to quantify different chemicals in many fields at one time and to compare its distribution with regional CBF. In patients with unilateral ICA occlusion, NAA/Cr ratio of the affected cortex varies depending on the collateral circulation and the contralateral ICA lesions. The Extracranial-Intracranial Bypass should be considered if the case with unilateral ICA occlusion reveals reduced CBF and normal or slightly decreased NAA/Cr ratio in the affected cortex.

Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) is an uncommon disorder characterized by increased intracranial pressure without radiological or laboratory evidence of intracranial pathology except empty sella turcica, optic nerve sheath with filled out cerebrospinal fluid spaces, and smooth-walled nonflow-related venous sinus stenosis or collapse. This condition typically affects obese women. The incidence of IIH is increasing with the rising prevalence of obesity. Persistent headache is the most common symptom. Visual impairment is a serious complication that may not be recognized by the patients. This paper reviews clinical manifestations, diagnostic challenges, and current treatments of IIH in adults. Various imaging modalities have been studied on their validity for detection of IIH and papilledema. This review also includes new studies on medical, surgical, and interventional management of this condition. Acetazolamide and topiramate are the only two medications that have been studied in randomized controlled trials about their efficacy in treatment of IIH. In patients who have severe visual impairment or progressive visual deterioration despite medical management, surgical or interventional treatment may be considered. The efficacy and complications of cerebrospinal fluid diversion, optic nerve sheath fenestration, and endovascular venous stenting reported in the last 3 decades have been summarized in this review. Finally, the prospective aspects of biomarkers and treatments are proposed for future research.

At first evaluation US showed a significantly enlarged ONSD (.68 cm right; .66 cm left side) and the presence of increased ODE (.1 cm right; .15 cm left side). Post-punctural assessments showed a bilateral decrease of ONSD (.58 cm right; .58 cm left side), without changes in ODE values. After 12 months of treatment with acetazolamide and diet ODE completely normalized (0 cm on both sides). ODE values correlated directly with ONSD, and both ODE and ONSD values correlated directly with BMI. Correlations were statistically significant. ONSD changes occurred rapidly after the lumbar puncture, whereas the papilloedema required longer to reduce.

This boy presented with clinical features of episodic ataxia, and also showed cerebellar atrophy, hypotonia, autism and global developmental delay at age 4 years. Acetazolamide prevented further episodes of ataxia, dystonia and encephalopathy. Extensive biochemical and genetic tests were unrevealing; whole exome sequencing found a previously unreported variant in SCN2A, proven to be de novo and predicted to be protein-damaging.
1. The intracellular pH (pHi) of sheep heart Purkinje fibres and rat, ferret and guinea-pig ventricle has been measured using recessed-tip pH-sensitive micro-electrodes. 2. In the absence of CO2 the pHi was approximately 7-2 in all the preparations used. In 5% CO2 the mean pHi was 7-14 in rat and ferret ventricle and 7-02 in sheep Purkinje fibres. 3. The pHi response to an increase or a decrease in the CO2 level (at constant external pH) was biphasic with a large transient change followed by a partial recovery to a new sustained pHi. 4. The intracellular buffering capacity was 34-8 +/- 2-7 m-equiv H+/pH unit per l. (+/- S.E. of mean) in sheep Purkinje fibres, 76-6 +/- 13-6 in rat ventricle and approximately 69 in ferret ventricle. 5. The pHi of all the preparations tested indicated that H+ ions were not passively distributed across the cell membrane. There was also little or no pHi change produced by depolarization with high K solutions. 6. Short exposures to hypertonic solutions (100 mM sucrose or 50 mM-KCl) produced a decrease in pHi of approximately 0-1 pH units. 7. Acetazolamide slowed the pHi response to CO2 changes. 8. Restoration of the pHi after displacement by increasing the CO2 was not blocked by ouabain or SITS. 9. The relationship between pHi and cardiac contractility is discussed.
