Treatment Information

Acetazolamide (Eytazox)

Acetazolamide is a mild diuretic usually given to correct abnormal fluid retention and to treat Glaucoma. Recent studies have found that it is safe and effective in reducing the risk of altitude sickness and associated symptoms. It has a notable effect on acclimatisation allowing a better and more tolerable climbing experience.

You can buy Eytazox online for altitude sickness from Prescription Doctor's trusted online pharmacy. All items are dispatched from our UK pharmacy in nondescript packaging to ensure your privacy.

Overview of Eytazox

Eytazox contains Acetazolamide which is a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor. It acts in the kidney to increase the excretion of Bicarbonate, sodium and potassium in the urine. This helps to decrease the alkalosis which occurs during ascent especially after 3000 m. It also increases the acidity of the blood enabling the body to maintain and possibly increase its oxygen intake at higher altitudes, thus augmenting the body's capability of acclimatisation.

How to take Eytazox

The usual dosage of Eytazox is 125- 250 mg administered once or twice a day. The Tablets should be taken one to two days before entering an altitude of 1500 m, and taken every day as directed until the desired altitude level is reached. Once the descent occurs, the tablets can be stopped.

The Prescribing Doctor will confirm the most appropriate dosage for you when you buy Eytazox online. If you are uncertain, our Doctors are available to provide one-to-one expert advice and recommendations.
