Topiramate also has been suggested as a treatment option, based on its usefulness in weight loss and because of its action as a weak carbonic anhydrase inhibitor.
PEARLS: Topiramate acts as a cerbonic anhydrase inhibitor and can cause a non-anion gap acidosis.

Osmotic diuretics (like mannitol) and carbonic anhydrase inhibitors (like acetazolamide) produce an opposite effect comparing to the majority of the other diuretics, decreasing lithium concentration (being therefore classically used to treat lithium's intoxication).

There were significantly fewer patients with a history of systemic hypertension in the progression group compared with those in the no-progression group (p = 0.037, Table 1), and significantly more used [beta]-blocker or carbonic anhydrase inhibitor eyedrops in the former compared with those in the latter group (p = 0.029 and p = 0.002, resp.).
Acetazolamide ([greater than or equal to] 99%, powder, Sigma-Aldrich, 222.2 Da), a pancarbonic anhydrase inhibitor, was dissolved in 20% dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO, Sigma-Aldrich) in PBS to prepare a 10 mM stock solution that was further diluted in DMEM to a final concentration of 100 [micro]M, prior to experiment.
