Description

Methazolamide Uses 

Methazolamide, with the generic name methazolamide, is an oral medication indicated to treat chronic open-angle glaucoma and acute angle-closure glaucoma. This is a condition in which increased pressure in the eye or IOP can lead to gradual loss of vision. This medication could help prevent vision loss, blindness, and nerve damage. 

This is available in Methazolamide 50 mg tablet form. 

Methazolamide Mechanism of Action 

This carbonic anhydrase inhibitor works by inhibiting the enzyme that is responsible for catalyzing the interconversion of carbon dioxide to carbonic acid. Through this, the aqueous humor secretion decreases. It is then followed by the slowing of the formation of bicarbonate ions with the reduction in sodium and fluid transport. As a result, the intraocular pressure decreases.
