Cheers Boos, we will be doing all the right stuff for acclimatising, i.e. walking high sleeping low etc. but from past experience at altitude (Killi, Himylayas) I needed the boost given by Diamox for a few days to stop suffering from the altitude effects. I have also been to the French/Italian/Swedish Alps, Puru, US etc and not suffered any ill effects there so I didn't bother then. I have them more for insurance rather than to take them as a matter of course.
Hi, heading off to the High Atlas and went to the docs for my normal prescription of Diamox (just in case). Tried to cash the prescription at a number of chemists only to be told that they are out of stock and the company is no longer manufacturing them. We have managed to get 10 tablets only and need to get our prescription altered to a capsule form instead. Anyone else had this experience?
