Quitting Diamox

  • By Leilani Siplon

    How long does it take for the effects of Diamox to leave the system? This fatigue is killing me. My mind wants to do so many things, but my body just quits.

    Hi Leilani Siplon,

    Thank you for your question. While I can’t you exactly when, I can tell you Diamox or acetazolamide, does have a fairly short half life elimination meaning it gets excreted about 2.5 to 8.5 hours, depending on your body.

    If you continue to have symptoms, please contact your doctor and discuss them with him. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.

    Keep us posted,
