In brief: Helpful drug
Carbonic anhydrase inhibitors (cai) are used mainly to treat two conditions: glaucoma and altitude sickness.
They are useful in both conditions and actually mandatory for high altitude climbing. There are side effects from chronic use, mainly kidney stones. Discuss this will your doctor if you think you need them.
