Treating Altitude Sickness

Altitude sickness may occur when travelling to a high altitude in a short space of time.

Also known as acute mountain sickness (AMS), altitude sickness can become a medical emergency if untreated or ignored. Age, sex and physical fitness do not influence the likelihood of a person experiencing altitude sickness. Therefore, it is important to understand the symptoms:

  • headache
  • nausea and vomiting
  • dizziness
  • tiredness
  • loss of appetite
  • shortness of breath

As part of our travel clinics, we stock Acetazolamide, the strongest form of medication to treat symptoms of altitude sickness. This will help you adjust more quickly to higher altitudes, thus combating symptoms such as headaches and nausea quicker.
