MedKoo CAT#: 573869

CAS#: 72296-05-0

Description: Zolamide sodium may be used to prevent and reduce the symptoms of altitude sickness. This drug is also used with other medications to treat open-angle glaucoma due to its efficacy as a diuretic. It decreases the amount of fluid that can build up in the eye. It is also used to decrease a buildup of body fluids (edema) caused by congestive heart failure or certain medications. It has also been used with other medications to treat certain types of seizures (petit mal and unlocalized seizures).
