Acetazoleamide a new oral diuretic in congestive cardiac failure

Jour Postgrad Med [Bombay] 2(3): 137-148

Acetazoleamide a new oral diuretic in congestive cardiac failure

The present report considers the use of acetazoleamide (Diamox) in 7 patients with congestive cardiac failure and generalized anasarca. The diuresis caused by acetazoleamide and corresponding weight loss and symptomatic improvement was good. Toxic effects encountered were drowsiness and a sense of weakness towards the latter part of the day, which, however, were not severe enough to necessitate withdrawal of the drug. In one case subconjunctival edema and hemorrhage was seen which was ascribed to hypersensitivity to the drug. Diamox is valuable as a diuretic provided it is used correctly.
