Just wanted to let you know that I am still alive & kicking (have just been very busy but
have been reading all messages). I am also trialling a new drug - I have just taken my third dose
of Acetazolamide (Diamox). I feel markedly better, but it is a bit rough on my stomach (some diarrhea
and a bit of nausea). I’m pretty happy with the side effects so far though - I have not experienced
the tingling hands and feet that others often do, yet.
It seems to be moderately effective so far (on 62.5mg), so I will continue dose increases every week
until reaching my target of 500mg or when the dizziness and visual symptoms disappear.
If anyone wants to read about it, there is a lot of info around (search Google). It is commonly used for
rare forms of migraine and is very effective in those.
