Diamox

This is the trade name for the oral medication acetazolamide. This is a water pill that is sometimes used in cases of poorly controlled glaucoma and to treat acute eye pressure spikes (such as after a complicated cataract surgery).  Diamox can also decrease the pressure around the brain in cases of pseudotumor cerebri.  See the entry on acetazolamide for more information.
