Altitude Sickness Treatments

Altitude sickness, or acute mountain sickness (AMS), can occur if a person travels to a high altitude too quickly. At over 3,000m above sea-level it isn’t possible to take in as much oxygen which makes breathing difficult and between 6 and 24 hours after reaching that height, altitude symptoms may develop. Care Online Pharmacy can provide effective treatment for altitude sickness.

Acetazolamide is an altitude medication which effectively treats and prevents the symptoms of elevation sickness, such as: shortness of breath, loss of appetite, tiredness, dizziness, nausea and vomiting and headache. By taking Acetazolamide medicine 1-2 days before the trip and whilst going up in altitude, these symptoms should be minimal.
