    I was diagnosed with a Chiari Malformation and Pseudotumor back in Jan. 2008. I had neck decompression surgery done and I was put on Diamox in 2008. This medicine has helped me and I can tell if I do not take it, that I start feeling pressure where my CSF is built up at. I take the capsules 500mg twice every other day. I deal with cranial pressure daily and I have chronic migraines. I recently had ... Show Full Comment

    I was diagnosed with pseudotumor cerebri in late summer 2011. I was NOT able to take the medication until 2 weeks after the spinal tap because the spinal tap pressure was NOT high enough by typical standards. I have been taking the medication for 1 week total. Tired, yes, but bearable, soda, YUCK tastes horrible, but who cares. Pins and needles in my feet come and go. Overall I am happy. It ... Show Full Comment
