Aceta Zolamide Interactions

Use caution when driving, operating machinery, or performing other hazardous activities. Acetazolamide may cause dizziness or drowsiness. If you experience dizziness or drowsiness, avoid these activities.

Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight. Acetazolamide may increase the sensitivity of your skin to sunlight. Use a sunscreen and wear protective clothing when exposure to the sun is unavoidable.

Before taking this medication, tell your doctor if you are taking any of the following medicines:

  • cyclosporine (Sandimmune). Cyclosporine may have more side effects if it is taken with acetazolamide.
  • primidone (Mysoline). Primidone may not be as effective if it is taken with acetazolamide, and seizure control may be reduced.
  • diflunisal (Dolobid). Diflunisal may increase both the activity and the side effects of acetazolamide.
  • aspirin, salsalate (Disalcid, Salflex, Salsitab, others), choline salicylate (Arthropan), magnesium salicylate (Doan's, Magan, Mobidin), and other aspirin-like products (salicylates). These medicines may also interact with acetazolamide, and special monitoring of your therapy may be necessary.
  • lithium (Lithobid, Eskalith, others). Acetazolamide may decrease the level of lithium in your blood. Special monitoring or a dosage adjustment may be necessary.

Drugs other than those listed here may also interact with acetazolamide. Talk to your doctor and pharmacist before taking any prescription or over-the-counter medicines.
