. . . . . Go barbie! Go Barbie! . . . . . . Yeaahhh!
Finally got the go-ahead for Diamox!!!!!! Managed to get a ‘short notice’ appointment with a Neuro-opthalmologist today. There was only something slightly untoward in my eye, I remember he said slight inflammation but I can’t remember whether he said optic nerve or sheath, anyway, it meant he was happy for me to try the Diamox, yippee!! I never thought I’d be excited about obtaining drugs. He did say to watch my potassium, to have a banana a day.
He first suggested the ‘slow release’ version but something in my head said that that’s not as good – have I imagined this ?! Is it a capsule or a tablet (and how big is it because I do have swallowing issues?)
What’s the best way to start taking it? and get the best from it ? any advice greatly appreciated.
