What should I know about methazolamide before taking it?

People who are allergic to sulfa-based drugs should not take methazolamide, as it can cause a serious adverse reaction. You will need to avoid sunlight while taking methazolamide because it causes increased sensitivity to the sun. If you must be in the sun, be sure to use sunscreen and cover your skin. You may become dizzy or drowsy after taking methazolamide, so avoid driving or operating machinery until you know how this medication might affect you. Tell your doctor if you have kidney, heart, lung, liver, or hormonal disease, as you may need an adjusted dose of methazolamide or extra monitoring while you are taking this medication.
