Acetazolamide Tablets

Acetazolamide is a diuretic used primarily to treat hyperkalemic periodic paralysis (HYPP), a genetic disease of the neuromuscular system in horses. Also used to decrease intraocular pressure in the treatment of glaucoma in dogs and cats.

Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis Disease (HYPP) is a muscular disease that affects both horses and humans causing muscle weakness and tremors, sweating and difficulty breathing.

Adverse Effects:

Acetazolamide can potentially produce hypokalemia in some patients.

Contraindications and Precautions:

Do not use in patients with acidemia. Use with caution in any animals sensitive to sulfonamides.

Dosage and Directions:

Dogs and Cats: For glaucoma: 5-10 mg/kg, Every 8-12 hours, by mouth. For other dosage information see your veterinarian. When used to treat glaucoma, monitor patient's ocular pressure.

Horse: Administer acetazolamide orally (3 mg/kg). This is usually 6 to 8 tablets if the tablets are 250 mg each. Acetazolamide increases potassium excretion from the kidney and also affects glucose metabolism.

For severe attacks, immediate veterinary attention is necessary. If the horse is down and unable to stand, contact your veterinarian immediately.

How Supplied: 250 mg, 100 tablets
