Methazolamide How to Take

Methazolamide belongs to the class of medications called carbonic anhydrase inhibitors. It is used to treat open-angle Glaucoma, where higher than normal pressure within the eye. It is also used before surgery associated with acute angle-closure glaucoma, where surgery is delayed in order to lower the pressure inside the eye.

Fluid is constantly being formed and drained out of the eye. When this fluid does not drain out of the eye properly, pressure inside the eye increases. Methazolamide works by decreasing the production of fluid in the eye. It begins to reduce the pressure in the eye within 2 to 4 hours, with its maximum effect occurring at about 6 to 8 hours.

Your doctor may have suggested Methazolamide for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. As well, some forms of Methazolamide may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Methazolamide, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Methazolamide without consulting your doctor.
