Effective treatment to prevent and ease symptoms of altitude sickness.
This is a generic product, therefore depending on availability, the brand you receive may not be the same as the one pictured.
What is Acetazolamide?
Acetazolamide tablets work by increasing the amount of urine that is produced in the body, which effects the acidity of the blood. This consequently reduces the amount of fluid in the head and lungs, improving your breathing and relives your symptoms. If you are feeling unwell while you?re ascending, then it is recommended to descend or to have a rest.
For the treatment of altitude sickness, one Acetazolamide 250mg tablet should be taken twice a day (every 12 hours). The treatment should be taken 1 - 2 days before you start to climb, and should be continued during the climb and for at least 2 days after you have reached your final altitude. However, if you find you are experiencing any side effects, it may be recommended to take half a dose twice a day. You can split these tablets in half with a pill cutter which may be bought from any pharmacy.
How to take?
One tablet (250mg) is to be taken twice a day, starting two days before travel, continuing 2 days after final altitude is reached.
