Altitude Sickness Medication
Altitude sickness medications are used to treat or prevent symptoms of altitude sickness such as nausea, dizziness, and lethargy. If you suffer from altitude sickness, these medications can be prescribed by healthcare providers to make travel more bearable.
- Altitude sickness, also known as acute mountain sickness (AMS), can vary in severity depending on individual susceptibility and the rate of ascent to high altitudes. Mild cases of AMS often cause symptoms like headache, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, and difficulty sleeping. These symptoms typically improve with rest and acclimatization. However, more severe forms of altitude sickness, such as high-altitude cerebral edema (HACE) or high-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE), can be life-threatening if left untreated.
