    Yes! I’ve been taking it for at least as long. My dose is 1500mg twice a day 😬 my neurologist told me it can drastically reduce the amount of potassium in your body, so I take 4 potassium supplements and so far it’s almost completely gotten rid of my side effects. My super uncomfortable pins and needles and numbness in my arms and legs went away!

    Hey I am on diamox as well. I take it for papilledema. It isn't working yet as I still can't see and I understand now why my mom has so many issues with her water pills. And not to mention I lost a whole ten pounds in a week 😅
