Methazolamide is indicated for the treatment of glaucoma, a condition characterized by elevated intraocular pressure that can result in progressive vision loss. As a member of the carbonic anhydrase inhibitors class of medications, methazolamide functions by effectively reducing the pressure within the eye, thereby alleviating the symptoms associated with glaucoma.

Uses and Dosage

Methazolamide is administered orally in the form of tablets. Typically, it is taken two or three times a day.

To ensure optimal efficacy, take methazolamide at approximately the same times each day. Follow the prescribed dosage precisely and avoid altering the frequency of administration, either increasing or decreasing, beyond the doctor’s recommendation.

While methazolamide effectively manages glaucoma, it does not provide a cure. Continue taking methazolamide even if you feel well. Discontinuing the medication should only be done under the guidance of your doctor.

  • pain, burning, or tingling in the hands or feet
  • hearing problems or ringing in the ears
  • tiredness or lack of energy
  • vomiting or diarrhea
  • change in how things taste
  • increased urination
