To Diamox or Not to Diamox

Hello there

Finally got my Doc to agree to prescirbe me Diamox before our hikes to Kili and EBC .  Just wondering what people's experiences are of this drug ? How often they took it ? At what point did they start to take it ?

Have decided to give myself a trial run at home first to see if I get on OK with it or any adverse symptoms rather than risk it on the mountain / trail

Any tips warmly welcomed



Hi Gill

Thanks very much , did you take it pre hike or during ?


I only took it whilst on the trip, not before. And only taking half  the dose led   me to wonder how much was biological and how much psychological.... (and I'm a nurse!). Whatever works for you, I think. Good luck



Thanks very much Gill for the advice .  169 days to go ..... and counting :o)
