Used to altitude sickness even on airplanes (cabin air pressure similar to 6-8K feet)and higher mountains. This medicine has been a life saver for me in avoiding that headache pain, and associated nausea. Well worth trying if these symptoms seem like yours.

I was taking this medication as a short-term solution for my pseudotumor cerebri until I could have my surgery done. This medication did do what it was supposed to. However, the side effects were horrible. I was always short of breath ( my O2 % was at 92% a majority of the time) and I was always tired.
