And, I’m not sure that 4 Diamox is enough.. seems to be enough to keep the migraines away, but my tachycardia is not doing good.
Hon, I’d be tempted to go DOWN on your Diamox just a bit to see if your head/neck aches still stay away. Then continue to go down until they come back. Diamox is a mild diuretic, and if you take enough of it, and your blood volume goes down, it may make your tachy worse.
I WISH I knew how much bicarb to take. I just guess, and it seems to vary from day to day. But I had my potassium and CO2 checked every 2 WEEKS for a while as I fiddled with my Diamox dose. Now my CO2 isn’t an issue (knock on wood). I was able to go down to 63mg once or twice during the day, and 250 mg at night time. Everyone is different, of course, and it does take some fiddling. Oh, I did learn that the extended release is NOT the way to go. Period.
I take most of my supplements and meds at the same time. When I’m supposed to take something with food, I think that I’m taking enough pills to qualify as a meal. %-P 🙂 Diana
