Remedy Description

Diamox, or acetazolamide, a steroid, is a prescription medicine which helps prevent and treat altitude sickness.

It acts by making the blood slightly more acidic, which stimulates the brain to increase the rate

and depth of breathing. Used by treckers in climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. If altitude sickness is
