How does Acetazolamide Tablets work?
Acetazolamide Tablets are used to treat hyperkalemic periodic paralysis (HYPP) in horses. This type of periodic paralysis is characterized by hyperkalemia, or an increased level of potassium in the blood. As a diuretic agent, Acetazolamide Tablets work by ridding the body of excess fluid, along with certain minerals including potassium.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
Acetazolamide Tablets are a generic medication.

How is it given?
Acetazolamide Tablets are given by mouth. May be given with food to decrease stomach upset. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian. This medication should only be given to the pet for whom it was prescribed.

What results can I expect?
In horses, the use of Acetazolamide will not cure HYPP, but may help reduce the symptoms. For the treatment of glaucoma, Acetazolamide can be effective but has a high occurrence of side effects in dogs and cats.
