Summary of Clinical Use Click here for help
Used to treat certain types of glaucoma, epilepsy, or edema (fluid buildup) in combination with other medicines. Decreases fluid build-up/pressure in the eyeball (glaucoma) and acts as a diuretic in the kidneys, increasing fluid removel. Antiepileptic effect is believed to be due to inhibition of carbonic anhydrase in the brain which results in increased inhibition of transneuronal signal transduction, via increased chloride current.
