I’m going to altitude. Should I take Acetazolamide to prevent altitude illness ?

No, unless you have predictably and repeatedly had altitude illness before and are contemplating another venture up high, or if you are on specific time-cramped itineraries or flying to high-altitude destinations such as Lassa, Tibet. Use of this agent in our pharmaceutical culture is becoming more common. One individual said, “I feel totally diamoxalized” on a 5000 – meter pass. Consider whether this is how you want to remember your affair with thin air.
