Diamox (acetazolamide)

This prescription drug is an effective carbonic anhydrase inhibitor that is commonly used to treat glaucoma, hydrocephaly, and altitude sickness in human.  In tablet form (125 mg or 250 mg), it is the only practical treatment for Gas Bubble Syndrome (GBS) in seahorses available to the home hobbyist.  Depending on the form of GBS you are treating, it can be administered orally, as a series of baths, or as a pouch wash.  Few medications have saved more seahorses' lives than acetazolamide and it needs to be in your fish room.
