Diamox (Acetazolamide)

Diamox, a mostly recognized drugs for altitude sickness prevention and treatment. It allows you to breathe faster so that you metabolize more oxygen, thereby minimizing the symptoms caused by poor oxygenation. This is especially helpful at night when respiratory drive is decreased. While using a Diamox, it is advisable to start taking it 24 hours before you go to altitude and continue for at least five days at higher altitude. The recommendation of the Himalayan Rescue Association Medical Clinic is 125 mg. twice a day (morning and night). (The standard dose was 250 mg. but their research showed no difference for most people with the lower dose, although some individuals may need 250 mg.) Possible side effects include tingling of the lips and finger tips, blurring of vision, and alteration of taste. These side effects may be reduced with the 125 mg. dose. Side effects subside when the drug is stopped. It is more appropriate to contact your physician for a prescription. Since Diamox is a sulfonamide drug, people who are allergic to sulfa drugs should not take Diamox. Diamox has also been known to cause severe allergic reactions to people with no previous history of Diamox or sulfa allergies. Frank Hubbell of SOLO recommends a trial course of the drug before going to a remote location where a severe allergic reaction could prove difficult to treat.

Highly recommended to take a trial course before going to a remote location where a severe allergic reaction could prove difficult to treat if it occurred.

Alternative Drugs:

Dexamethasone (a steroid) is also a prescribed drug that decreases brain and other swelling reversing the effects of AMS. The dose is typically 4 mg twice a day for a few days starting with the ascent. This prevents most of the symptoms of altitude illness from developing.

ADVICE:

Dexamethasone is a powerful drug and should be used with caution and only on the advice of a physician and should only be used to aid acclimatization by sufficiently qualified persons or those with the necessary experience of its use.

NOTE:

It is more advisable to take drugs taking proper suggestions from Personal Physicians and in case if there is no any options. In the Himalayas of Nepal, the mountain dwellers believe in taking some garlic or ginger along with Red Pepper to produce heat for fast breathings.
