This drug is also used in conjunction with other medications to treat glaucoma, caused by fluid build up in the eye. It is also used to decrease the amount of body fluids (edema) caused by congestive cardiac failure. It has also been used with other drugs to treat certain types of seizures (petit mal and other seizures).
