I had been taking 2 - 250 mg tables three times a days mg twice a day for 5 yrs. Now I have been able to reduce to 2 - 250 mgs to twice a day over the past 4 yrs. for Pseudotumor Cerebri.

Incresing the Diamox with my Dr.'s permission for two to three days will get the headache back unde ... Show Full Comment

If you can figure out a way to deal with the s ... Show Full Comment
