Methazolamide is used to treat intraocular pressure (glaucoma). Methazolamide requires a prescription.
Give Methazolamide exactly as directed by the veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Give methazolamide with food and have water readily available to the pet.
Stop giving methazolamide and contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet has an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips, tongue, face; and hives), fever, unusual bleeding or bruising, pain, tingling or tremors in the legs, or a rash. Other less serious side effects that may occur include decreased appetite, nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, increased sensitivity of the skin to sunlight, difficulty controlling blood sugar, hearing or vision problems. Continue to give the medication and contact your veterinarian.
The side effects of methazolamide may include GI disturbances, drowsiness, depression or excitement, changes in urination, diabetes, rash, hypersensitivity, or an increased sensitivity of the skin to sunlight. Tell your veterinarian about any other medications you are giving your pet, and contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet experiences any of the above side effects. Store methazolamide at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets.
