Dr. Diana is now working full time at POTS Care.
NEW STUDY! Parasym Plus™ for Multiple Sclerosis › Forums › PrettyIll.com Discussion › EDS/MS/Chiari › HELP!! What if your're allergic to diamox?
I feel sooo much better from the diamox and Parasym Plus. However, now Im having crazy itching every time I take the diamox (like in the middle of the night!) I cant stop taking it, 250mgx2 barely takes away my headache, neck pain and plugged up ears. Also, one of them is giving me watery diarrhea, any idea who the culprit is? I am “duct-taped back together” but thats ok!
Thanks for all you do, Im out of bed participating in life again (POTS is gone, just waiting patiently for the fatigue to go away), feeling like I have another chance at life, Yahooo!!!
I’m so happy to hear you are starting to get your life back! The proper amount of Diamox is the smallest dose you can take that helps with your symptoms of high pressure. To do that, you want to be sure your CO2 levels are at 22 or above. Perhaps you are taking more than you need? Sometimes Lasix can help a bit with high pressure. Low salt diets, soft cervical collars at night and elevating the head of your bed can also help. Gentle hugs…
