How we are regulated

Altitude 
Sickness 

Altitude Sickness (also known as acute mountain sickness or AMS) occurs when you travel to a high altitude quickly. Common symptoms of altitude sickness include a headache, nausea or vomiting, dizziness and fatigue (tiredness).

Altitude sickness is preventable and can be avoided even if you travel to altitudes of 2500 meters above sea level. A combination of medication and allowing your body to become accustomed to a change in altitude over a few days can work wonders when your journey takes you to the highest heights.

Altitude Sickness Treatments

What Altitude Sickness treatment can do

There are several altitude sickness treatments available that can be used to ease symptoms like feeling sick, headaches, dizziness, and tiredness.

If you know that you will be travelling to a great height, you can speak to a medical professional so they can recommend a treatment that can help you on your way.

You'll often start to take your altitude sickness medication 1 - 2 days before your journey and continue treatment as your travels take you to higher altitudes, so it's best to be prepared if you know you have a trip planned.

Answer our quick questionnaire and our prescriber will decide whether prescription altitude sickness treatments are suitable for you and send out any necessary prescriptions.
