If you’re planning a trip to a high altitude destination, it’s important to be prepared for the possibility of altitude sickness. Medical conditions and high altitude travel can interact poorly, causing altitude sickness. This condition, which can occur when you suddenly gain elevation, is caused by the lack of oxygen at high altitudes.

Symptoms include headache, nausea, fatigue, and difficulty breathing. In severe cases, it can lead to coma or even death. Altitude sickness medication can help to prevent or treat these symptoms. The most common type of medication is acetazolamide, which helps the body to adapt to the lack of oxygen.

It’s important to start taking the high altitude sickness medication a few days before you travel to a high altitude destination, and to continue taking it for the duration of your stay. If you start to experience symptoms of altitude sickness, it’s important to descend to a lower elevation as soon as possible. With proper prevention and treatment, you can enjoy your high-altitude vacation without any problems.

If you’re planning a trip to a high altitude destination, consult with the experts at the Travel Vaccine Clinic before heading out.

"I saw your dr. last weekend and it was a great experience. I felt that he made sure I am traveling with the most recommended vaccines and nothing i do not need. Don't be fooled by his young age appearance, he knows his stuff!!! Efel was the person at the front desk, very sweet and friendly. Prices are OK especially for the level of professionalism they showed."
