Altitude Sickness


You can order Diamox (acetazolamide) for altitude sickness online with our Australian registered online doctor. Whether it is the Inca trail in Peru, Everest base camp in the Himalayas, (or even Everest itself!), altitude sickness can be a problem.

Acetazolamide alters the acidity of the blood to improve breathing and reduce fluid around the brain and in the lungs. It is this fluid which can sometimes lead to the very severe effects of altitude sickness. Short courses of acetazolamide generally do not cause side effects and stopping the tablets does not cause a rebound in symptoms.
