Randomized trials of dichlorphenamide in the periodic paralyses. Working Group on Periodic Paralysis. [2000.01]
Although the carbonic anhydrase inhibitors have been used in the treatment of the primary periodic paralyses (PPs), their efficacy has not been demonstrated in double-blind, placebo-controlled trials. Therefore, we tested the efficacy of dichlorphenamide (DCP; Daranide), a potent carbonic anhydrase inhibitor, in the treatment of episodic weakness in the primary PPs...

Hyper- and Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis Study [Recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to compare Dichlorphenamide with placebo (an inactive
substance) for prevention of episodes and for improvement of strength in periodic paralysis.
