Also known as:  Acetazolamide.

Description

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.

Dosage

Diamox is available in tablets.

The dosage depends on the disease and its prescribed treatmen.

Glaucoma treatment:

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.

Epilepsy treatment:

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.

High altitude headache (HAH) is the most common neurological complaint at altitude and the defining component of acute mountain sickness (AMS). However, there is a paucity of literature concerning its prevention. Toward this end, we initiated a prospective, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial in the Nepal Himalaya designed to compare the effectiveness of ibuprofen and acetazolamide for the prevention of HAH.

The authors sought to determine risk for stroke in individuals with symptomatic carotid stenosis or occlusion based upon an assessment of cerebral blood flow (CBF) reserves. Vascular reserve was assessed by two consecutive xenon/computerized tomography (Xe/CT) CBF studies with intravenous acetazolamide introduced 20 minutes prior to the second study. Patients were assigned to one of two vasoreactivity groups. Group 2 included individuals who experienced a CBF reduction of more than 5% in at least one vascular territory and had a baseline flow of 45 cc/100 gm/min or less. Group 1 included all other individuals. Any territory with volume loss on CT of more than 50% was eliminated from analysis. Sixty-eight individuals were followed at 6-month intervals for a mean of 24 months. In Group 1 two strokes were observed contralateral to the side with lowest reserve, for a stroke incidence of 4.4%; in Group 2 eight strokes were observed ipsilateral to the side with lowest reserve, for a stroke incidence of 36%. The latter group had a 12.6 times greater chance of stroke (p = 0.0007). History of stroke, history of transient ischemic attacks, baseline CBF, and degree of stenosis were not associated with an increased stroke rate. In this study, significantly compromised vascular reserves accompanied by relatively low initial flow identified individuals who subsequently demonstrated a significantly increased rate of ipsilateral stroke.

A series of experiments were performed to demonstrate the presence of and characterize the Na-H exchanger on rabbit ileal brush border with a vesicle preparation. An outwardly directed proton gradient (pH 5.5 inside, pH 7.5 outside) stimulated Na uptake, and a fourfold "overshoot" was observed. Conversely, an inwardly directed proton gradient (pH 7.5 inside, pH 5.5 outside) inhibited Na uptake. This stimulation/inhibition of Na uptake could not be accounted for by a proton diffusion potential, because Na uptake was found to be potential insensitive. Amiloride and harmaline inhibited pH-stimulated Na uptake, but other transport inhibitors (acetazolamide, DIDS, SITS, furosemide, and bumetanide) had no effect. Amiloride also inhibited Na efflux in the presence and absence of a pH gradient. Proton gradient-stimulated Na uptake was saturable with a Km of 16.2 mM and a Vmax of 129 nmol X min-1 X mg protein-1. Tetramethylammonium did not affect pH-stimulated Na uptake, but other cations tested inhibited Na uptake, with NH4+ and Li+ causing greater inhibition than K+ or Cs+. Using the fluorescent probe acridine orange, an inwardly directed Na gradient was shown to stimulate proton efflux from the vesicles and an outwardly directed Na gradient stimulated proton influx.

This study was designed to test the hypothesis that the antikaliuresis caused by trimethoprim could be diminished by alkalinizing the luminal fluid in the CCD, thereby converting trimethoprim from its cationic, active form to an electroneutral, inactive, form. Trimethoprim-induced inhibition of transepithelial Na+ transport was examined in A6 distal nephron cells by analysis of short circuit current. The voltage-dependence of the trimethoprim-induced block of Na+ channels was examined with patch clamp recordings of A6 cells. The antikaliuretic effect of trimethoprim was examined in vivo in rats pretreated with deoxycorticosterone and with NH4Cl to lower urine pH, and in rats also receiving acetazolamide to raise urine pH. We found that the concentration of trimethoprim required to inhibit the amiloride sensitive component of short circuit current by 50% (IC50) was 340 microM (at pH 8.2) and 50 microM (at pH 6.3). The IC50S of protonated trimethoprim were similar (34 microM at pH 8.2 and 45 microM at pH 6.3). The mean time open for the high selectivity, Na+ channel was reduced from 1679 +/- 387 msec to 502 +/- 98 msec with addition of 10-5 M trimethoprim to patch pipette solution at the resting membrane potential (-Vpipette = 0 mV). further decreases in mean time open were observed as -Vpipette was reduced (that is, apical membrane hyperpolarization) to -40 mV (mean time open = 217 +/- 85 msec) and to -80 mV (mean time open = 69 +/- 13 msec). In vivo, trimethoprim caused a > 50% reduction in potassium (K+) excretion due primarily to a fall in the [K+] in the lumen of the terminal CCD. This effect of trimethoprim was markedly attenuated in an alkaline urine induced by acetazolamide. We conclude that it is the charged, protonated species of trimethoprim which blocks epithelial Na+ channels. Increasing urinary pH decreases the concentration of the charged species of trimethoprim and minimizes its antikaliuretic effect.

We performed a randomized, double-blind, controlled study to investigate the effect of a 3-month course of 300 mg allopurinol once daily vs. placebo on CVR in individuals with recent (within 6 months) subcortical stroke. Participants were randomized on a 1:1 basis. CVR was defined as the percentage change in middle cerebral artery flow velocity following an intravenous injection of 15 mg kg(-1) of acetazolamide. Our primary end-point was the CVR difference between baseline and 3 months. Secondary end-points included measures of peripheral vascular reactivity and blood markers of inflammation and endothelial activation.

Previous studies have shown that patients at high risk for stroke can be identified with quantitative CBF methods. This study shows that the important subgroup cannot be accurately defined with qualitative methodology. The implications of using the more reliable methodology are important for individual patient management and for designing clinical trials.

Highland population (HA) from the Andes, living above 3000 m, have a blunted ventilatory response to increasing hypoxia, breathe less compared to acclimatized newcomers, but more, compared to sea-level natives at sea level. Subjects with chronic mountain sickness (CMS) breathe like sea-level natives and have excessive erythrocytosis (EE). The respiratory stimulation that arises through the peripheral chemoreflex is modestly less in the CMS group when compared with the HA group at the same P(ET(O2)). With regard to CO(2) sensitivity, CMS subjects seem to have reset their central CO(2) chemoreceptors to operate around the sea-level resting P(ET(CO2)). Acetazolamide, an acidifying drug that increases the chemosensitivity of regions in the brain stem that contain CO(2)/H(+) sensitive neurons, partially reverses this phenomenon, thus, providing CMS subjects with the possibility to have high CO(2) changes, despite small changes in ventilation. However, the same type of adjustments of the breathing pattern established for Andeans has not been found necessarily in Asian humans and/or domestic animals nor in the various high altitude species studied. The differing time frames of exposure to hypoxia among the populations, as well as the reversibility of the different components of the respiratory process at sea level, provide key concepts concerning the importance of time at high altitude in the evolution of an appropriate breathing pattern.

A gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS)-based screening procedure was developed for the detection of diuretics, uricosurics, and/or their metabolites in human urine after extractive methylation. Phase-transfer catalyst remaining in the organic phase was removed by solid-phase extraction on a diol phase. The compounds were separated by GC and identified by MS in the full-scan mode. The possible presence of the following drugs and/or their metabolites could be indicated using mass chromatography with the given ions: m/z 267, 352, 353, 355, 386, and 392 for thiazide diuretics bemetizide, bendroflumethiazide, butizide, chlorothiazide, cyclopenthiazide, cyclothiazide, hydrochlorothiazide, metolazone, polythiazide, and for canrenoic acid and spironolactone; m/z 77, 81, 181, 261, 270, 295, 406, and 438 for loop diuretics bumetanide, ethacrynic acid, furosemide, piretanide, torasemide, as well as the uricosurics benzbromarone, probenecid, and sulfinpyrazone; m/z 84, 85, 111, 112, 135, 161, 249, 253, 289, and 363 for the other diuretics acetazolamide, carzenide, chlorthalidone, clopamide, diclofenamide, etozoline, indapamide, mefruside, tienilic acid, and xipamide. The identity of positive signals in such mass chromatograms was confirmed by comparison of the peaks underlying full mass spectra with reference spectra. This method allowed the detection of the abovementioned drugs and/or their metabolites in human urine samples, except torasemide. The limits of detection ranged from 0.001 to 5 mg/L in the full-scan mode. Recoveries of selected diuretics and uricosurics, representing the different chemical classes, ranged from 46% to 99% with coefficients of variation of less than 21%. After ingestion of the lowest therapeutic doses, furosemide was detectable in urine samples for 67 hours, hydrochlorothiazide for 48 hours, and spironolactone for 52 hours (via its target analyte canrenone). The procedure described here is part of a systematic toxicological analysis procedure for acidic drugs and poisons.

A 43-year-old man had been suffering from exertional headache for 10 years. Sagittal sections on magnetic resonance imaging showed a Chiari type 1 malformation and a cerebellar arachnoid cyst. This syndrome, named hindbrain hernia headache, disappeared with oral acetazolamide. This treatment should be tried in patients with hindbrain hernia headache prior to considering surgical decompression of the foramen magnum.

We report on the feasibility of hemodynamic monitoring during occlusive neuro-endovascular procedures. The cerebrovascular reserve capacity as assessed by transcranial Doppler sonography was chosen as the hemodynamic parameter. A standardized stimulation of cerebral blood flow was achieved by a bolus injection of 100 mg acetazolamide (Diamox) i.v. Ten minutes after injection, the middle cerebral artery blood flow velocity of 54 arteries in 33 normal persons increased by 41% +/- 17.5 (mean +/- standard deviation). The lower threshold value was therefore set to 6% increase (mean minus 2 standard deviations). An application in a case of endovascular test- and permanent occlusion of an internal carotid artery is described.

A 21-year-old male presented with severe throbbing headache, nausea, vomiting and progressive visual loss. Clinical examination revealed bilateral papilledema and left abducens nerve palsy. MRI showed findings consistent with dural sinus thrombosis. Combinging the clinical findings, MRI and a positive pathergy test, the patient was diagnosed with dural sinus thrombosis associated with Behçet's disease (BD). Despite acetazolamide, prednisone, azathioprine and repeated lumbar punctures, his signs and symptoms of intracranial hypertension gradually worsened. Therefore, lumboperitoneal shunting was planned after which rapid resolution of intracranial hypertension was observed. After reviewing similar reports, we suggest that lumboperitoneal shunt placement can be an effective treatment for patients with BD with medically refractory intracranial hypertension associated with dural sinus thrombosis.

Systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis (SJIA) is one of the most severe forms of arthritis that affects children younger than 16 years of age at onset. SJIA often requires corticosteroids to control the inflammation. However, long-term corticosteroid use may have adverse effects, including intracranial hypertension (IH). Biologic therapies have been used as corticosteroid sparing agents. We report the first case of a child with steroid-dependent SJIA treated with tocilizumab, an IL-6 receptor monoclonal antibody, who developed fulminant IH, bilateral papilloedema and vision loss when oral prednisone was weaned from 2 to 1 mg per day. Despite repeated lumbar punctures and high dose acetazolamide, he required urgent unilateral optic nerve sheath fenestration (ONSF). This endoscopic surgical intervention released the pressure exerted by the cerebrospinal fluid on the optic nerve and stopped the progression of vision loss. Nine weeks after the diagnosis of bilateral papilloedema, his vision was completely restored in one eye and partially recovered in the contralateral one. Long-term treatment with corticosteroids even at very low dose and tocilizumab may predispose to severe IH, papilloedema and vision loss. The role that tocilizumab might have played in this case in unclear. Early recognition and prompt treatment of papilloedema is crucial in avoiding permanent vision loss. Fulminant papilloedema in an immunocompromised child carries additional significant challenges. Early ONSF is a safe and effective intervention in refractory papilloedema. Children with severe papilledema secondary to IH should be managed by a multidisciplinary team in tertiary centres.

Bile salts are potent inhibitors of bovine carbonic anhydrase and human carbonic anhydrase I and human carbonic anhydrase II. To further characterize the binding of bile salts to carbonic anhydrase, rate constants for the CO2 hydration reaction in the presence of deoxycholate, cholate, glycocholate and taurocholate were determined using stop-flow experiments. Values for the Michaelis-Menton dissociation constant for bovine carbonic anhydrase, human carbonic anhydrase I and human carbonic anhydrase II were found to be 5.2, 9 Artane 20 Mg .2 and 13.2 mmol/L, respectively. The inhibition constant values for the various bile salts tested ranged from 0.1 to 1 mmol/L for bovine carbonic anhydrase, 1.6 to 2.4 mmol/L for human carbonic anhydrase I and 0.09 to 0.7 mmol/L for human carbonic anhydrase II. Our results suggest a mechanism of noncompetitive carbonic anhydrase inhibition for bile salts. Bile-salt binding to carbonic anhydrases as measured by scanning molecular sieve chromatography resulted in an increase in partition radius, molecular volume and surface area. The partition radius increased from 24 A to 28 A in the presence of 2.5 mmol/L sodium deoxycholate at critical micelle concentration. As determined by sedimentation equilibrium measurements, approximately 1 gm of carbonic anhydrase will bind 0.03 gm of deoxycholate, suggesting three to six binding sites for bile salt on the carbonic anhydrase molecule. The conformational changes and inhibition of carbonic anhydrases resulting from bile-salt binding may be important to the regulation of enzymatic activity in tissues along the enterohepatic circulation; by limiting bicarbonate availability this interaction may also contribute to the metabolic derangements seen in patients with cholestatic liver disease.

Regional cerebral blood flows (rCBF) were studied in 6 patients with lateral medullary infarction and 4 patients with pontine infarction, using stable xenon computed tomography method. In lateral medullary infarction, the rCBF and acetazolamide reactivity were decreased in the ipsilateral cerebellum and the rCBF was decreased with normal acetazolamide reactivity in the contralateral frontal lobe in one patient accompanying ipsilateral cerebellar infarction. rCBF was decreased with normal acetazolamide reactivity in the cerebellum in 3 patients, and both rCBF and acetazolamide reactivity were decreased in the whole brain in 2 patients. In pontine infarction, rCBF was decreased in ipsilateral frontal lobe and contralateral Cefixime Tablet cerebellum in one patient, rCBF was decreased in the cerebellum with normal acetazolamide reactivity in the other patients. The hypoperfusion with normal acetazolamide reactivity was considered to be due to diaschisis. The rCBF decrease in the remote areas in patients with brainstem infarction was considered to be due to diaschisis or underlying arteriosclerosis.

During hypoglycemia, cerebral blood flow (CBF) does not increase significantly until peripheral glucose levels are very low (2.0 mmol/l), that is, Motrin Cough Syrup well below the blood glucose threshold for impairment of cognitive function (3.0 mmol/l). Because increased rates of cerebral blood flow will increase glucose transport, a failure of flow to rise earlier, before brain function is threatened, might be considered maladaptive. To examine the influence of inducing an earlier rise in CBF during hypoglycemia, eight healthy volunteers participated in three studies using a randomized, placebo-controlled design. In all three studies, a hyperinsulinemic (60 mU x m2 x min(-1)) clamp was used to maintain blood glucose levels at 4.5 mmol/l for 60 min. Thereafter, for EUG-ACZ, blood glucose was maintained at 4.5 mmol/l from 60 to 170 min and at 90 min from the start of this study, and 1-g acetazolamide i.v. was given to induce an early rise in CBF; for HYPO-ACZ, glucose was lowered over 20 min to 2.8 mmol/l and kept at that level for 90 min, and acetazolamide was given 90 min from the start of this study; and for HYPO-CON, glucose was treated as in HYPO-ACZ, and matching placebo was given in place of acetazolamide. Injection of acetazolamide was associated with a 30% rise in right (95% CI 24-34%) and left (20-32%) middle cerebral artery velocity (an index of CBF) during euglycemia without any change in hypoglycemia awareness or counterregulatory hormone levels. When glucose was lowered to 2.8 mmol/l, acetazolamide caused a similar rise in middle cerebral artery velocity in the HYPO-ACZ study. However, all subjects were less "aware" of hypoglycemia, had fewer adrenergic symptoms (sweating, palpitations, tremors; all P < 0.05), and had lower plasma epinephrine levels (1,026 vs. 1,790 pmol/l; -764 [437 to 1,097] pmol/l, point estimate of difference [95% CI]; P < 0.001), compared with the HYPO-CON study, whereas levels of other counter-regulatory hormones and norepinephrine were similar. Cognitive function (latency of the P300 evoked response) was unaffected by increasing CBF. In conclusion, enhanced rates of cerebral blood flow at the onset of systemic hypoglycemia are associated with diminished perception of low blood glucose levels and attenuation of the epinephrine counterregulatory response. These findings suggest that augmenting cerebral blood flow leads to an enhanced rate of substrate delivery to the central nervous system.

Cerebral blood flow was measured by the intravenous xenon-133 technique at rest and during cerebral vasodilation with acetazolamide in 32 patients before and after uncomplicated carotid endarterectomy. The results were compared with the internal carotid artery perfusion pressure measured during surgery. A significant improvement in side-to-side cerebral blood flow asymmetry occurred in 6 patients studied at baseline and in 11 patients during provoked cerebral vasodilation. These patients all belonged to a group of 14 patients who, in addition to a severe stenosis of the internal carotid artery, presented a reduction in cerebral perfusion pressure of at least 20%. No improvements occurred in 18 patients Cozaar Name Brand with no or only minor reduction in perfusion pressure, irrespective of the degree of stenosis. These findings indicate an improved perfusion reserve following carotid endarterectomy in most patients with marked reduction in perfusion pressure, whereas only some of these patients will experience an improvement in baseline cerebral blood flow.

The authors report on seven patients with narrow-angle glaucoma treated for up to six months with Timolol eye drops. Prior Norvasc 50 Mg to treatment with Timolol the patient's eyes had remained unregulated despite miotics therapy, or it had been impossible to continue with miotics due to subjective intolerance. Timolol eye drops achieved a significant lowering of pressure in all seven patients and satisfactory pressure stabilization was achieved either with Timolol eye drops alone or in combination with pilocarpine or Carbachol eye drops. In one patient who had unregulated glaucoma and who was on Carbachol/acetazolamide therapy, satisfactory stabilization was achieved by additional application of Timolol.

The purpose of the present study was to determine whether the signal intensity of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) on preoperative 1.5-T magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) could identify patients at risk for hyperperfusion following carotid endarterectomy (CEA) as a clinical screening test and whether an additional measurement of preoperative cerebrovascular reactivity (CVR) to acetazolamide on brain Duricef Generic Name perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) could increase the predictive accuracy for the development of hyperperfusion.

The flash-evoked afterdischarge (FEAD) is a self-sustained burst of wave-and-spike complexes recorded from occipital cortex in the rat and other animals in response to a single light flash. On the basis of behavioral experiments and studies employing single doses of antiepileptic drugs, FEAD has been proposed as a model of the absence seizure. In order to test the validity of FEAD as an absence seizure model, the present experiments determined dose-response relationships for the suppression of FEAD by six antiepileptic drugs with established clinical profiles. It was found that phenobarbital, ethosuximide, and trimethadione suppressed FEAD in a dose-related manner, and that ethosuximide was approximately three times as potent as trimethadione. Mephenytoin produced a maximal reduction of FEAD of only 30 to 40%, which was not dose-related. Neither phenytoin nor acetazolamide suppressed FEAD. The results obtained with ethosuximide, trimethadione, and phenytoin are qualitatively similar to their therapeutic effects in absence epilepsy. The FEAD model failed, however, to unequivocally predict the therapeutic efficacy of mephenytoin or acetazolamide. In this respect, it is similar to the metrazol seizure model. It is Biaxin Dosage Forms concluded that FEAD is a valid absence seizure model with a pharmacological predictive value that is at least as good as the metrazol model.

Cryptococcal meningitis is the most common and severe form of cryptococcal infection. In addition to infiltrative and inflammatory mechanisms, intracranial hypertension commonly complicates cryptococcal meningitis and may cause significant visual and neurological morbidity and mortality. The mainstays of treatment for cryptococcal meningitis include standard antifungal therapy, management of intracranial hypertension, and treatment of underlying immunosuppressive conditions. Early and aggressive management of intracranial hypertension in accordance with established guidelines reduces the risk of long-term visual and neurological complications and death. Traditional recommendations for treating elevated intracranial pressure in idiopathic intracranial hypertension including acetazolamide, weight loss, and avoiding serial lumbar punctures-are not helpful in cryptococcal meningitis and may be harmful.
