Precaution is advised for early detection of such reactions and the drug should be discontinued and appropriate therapy instituted.

Caution is advised for patients receiving concomitant high-dose aspirin and acetazolamide, as anorexia, tachypnea, lethargy, coma and death have been reported (see WARNINGS).
