    I am taking trusopt for macula swelling. I have been experienceing considerable GI distress and eyelid scaling. I am taking baking soda and TUMS regularly to offset the GI distress and they are helpful. I took the Diamox pill version and the GI distress was overwhelming after 5 days and I stopped the medication on the 6th day. I weas advised to take the baking soda and TUMS to counter the Diamox effects and within a few days my GI recovered. The Diamox did improve the swelling slightly over the very brief treatment duration. Had I known about the Baking Soda and TUMS sooner I might have been able to endure the Diamox for a longer treatment period with even better results. I switched to the Trusopt because I was told that there likely would be less systemix effects as with the Diamox pill. I disagree. I have the same bad taste in my mouth and GI distress including very painfull trapped gas (although the baking soda and TUMS have significantly reduced that symptom.) The trusopt drops in both eyes burn for several seconds and blur my vision for several minutes. In about two weeks I will have an eye scan to determine its effectiveness. If not effective I may have to switch back to the Diamox pills.
