Answer

Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitors

These agents are used for the treatment of idiopathic intracranial hypertension.

Acetazolamide (Diamox)

Acetazolamide decreases the production of CSF and has diuretic effects. It has not been formally recommended for pediatric use and should be reserved for consultation.
