What are the side effects of methazolamide?

Side effects of methazolamide may include nervousness or trembling, headache, confusion, dizziness, drowsiness, fatigue, weakness, changes in vision or hearing, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation. People who are diabetic may also have trouble controlling their blood sugar, and people with gout may experience a flare-up. Methazolamide causes the skin to be more sensitive to sun, so you will need to use sunscreen and cover up when you go outside. Signs of an allergic reaction to methazolamide include sore throat, fever, rash or hives, tingling in the hands and feet, pain in the side or groin, and easy bruising or bleeding. If you experience any of these reactions, you should stop taking methazolamide and call your doctor right away.
