    I have been on Diamox for approximately 6 weeks now. I started out taking 250mg for a week and then was increased to 500mg/day. I saw my neuro approximately two weeks ago and my dose again was increased to 1000mg/day. I currently get a good bit of the side effects, i.e. numbness and tingling in my hands, face, legs, feet, everywhere really. Soda tastes gross, but that is okay. I am completely ...

    I have been taking Diamox for over 15 yrs. It has saved my life! I could not function without it. I am leading a very active life today. I was taking 500mg once a day and now I am on 500mg just twice a week. My symptoms are very mild. I am grateful to have this!

    this treatment has been working well with my IIH, but it makes my arms turn red when right after i take my first dose. I learned i had to eat with this medication very quickly, due to the medicine making my stomach upset. overall im pleased with it, just wish my Pharmacy's carried it. it's very hard to locate in my area the quantiy i need.
