I was diagnosed with IIH in September and since then have increased my dosage to 1000mgs per day. I had my 2nd lumbar puncture yesterday and my CSF pressure was down from over 40 to 32. I have also had no episodes of vision loss for over a fortnight. My headaches have reduced slightly, but that may be due to the Topamax that I take daily for migraine. The initial side effects aren't pleasa ... Show Full Comment

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. I went from have sever headaches and blackouts to only having break through headaches about 4 times a year. Incresing the Diamox with my Dr.'s permission for two to three days will get the headache back unde ... Show Full Comment

Was started on this medication at 1000 mg 4 days ago. In that period I have already begun experiencing the following symptoms: horrible pins and needles in my feet and joints, tingling in my face, hands shaking, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, severe mental confusion. I have just called my doctor and my dosage has been reduced to only 500 mg per day. We'll see what happens with lower dose. ... Show Full Comment

I have been taking this medicine for almost 5 years now and I have some side effects like dry mouth, tingling in my feet and being very tired. I am up to 1500mg daily. I have found that the sequels work so much better than the tablets. While I was on the tablets I had to have 3 lumbar punctures and on the sequels I have only had 1 in the last 2 years. If you can figure out a way to deal with the s ... Show Full Comment
