Acetazolamide can be used to treat altitude sickness and glaucoma and can also be used as a diuretic. The symptoms of altitude sickness that Acetazolamide treats are a headache, tiredness, dizziness, nausea and shortness of breath that can occur when you climb quickly to high altitudes (usually above 3,048 meters). When treating glaucoma, it decreases the amount of fluid that can build up in the eye. It is also used to release the buildup of body fluids which can be caused by congestive heart failure or certain medications. Acetazolamide is usually used only for a short period of time as it becomes less effective the more it is used. In addition, Acetazolamide may sometimes be used in conjunction with other drugs to treat certain types of seizures.   The cost of 60 tablets of Acetazolamide 250mg is around $125.

Still have questions?

That’s great, we’ve got answers.

Use your searchRx discount card at pharmacies nationwide, from the large chains to small independent pharmacies.

Because searchRx isn’t insurance, there is no program or membership to enroll in. Once you receive your card, just show it to your pharmacist and start saving on your prescription medications.

Yes, of course! Our card is not insurance, we simply provide discounts on prescriptions. Because pricing is an ongoing negotiation, please bring both your insurance card and searchRx coupon to your pharmacist to see which provides a more cost-effective option for you.

No. As mentioned previously, we are not a replacement for insurance. We merely provide discounts through coupons for prescriptions. Any purchases through searchRx will not count toward an insurance deductible.
