I have a question, one that has been touched on once or twice (at least) before but I was wondering if anyone has encountered this recently.
I have been on diamox since I was diagnosed in 2005. My weight has increased steadily for years (nothing to do with IIH, due to my inability to put the fork down )
In mid September I started doing Slimming World and lost two and a half stone by Christmas, I was over the moon. At Christmas I decided as I was feeling so good I would stop taking my tablets; I had always been sporadic taking them anyway, would sometimes miss a day here and there with no ill effects. I know it is not the most sensible thing to do deciding for yourself if you need drugs or not but I HATE taking medication, especially if I feel OK.
Now since Christmas my weight has fluctuated up, down, up, down and I am left just one pound lighter now than I was seven weeks ago
To say I am peeved does not come close.
Granted I have not been 100% on my diet since Christmas, I have had a lot of other stress etc that haven't helped but the only consistent factor since December is I am not taking my tablets. Has anyone else found they have put on weight or at least stopped loosing when they come off of Diamox?
I may be making excuses for my inability to stick to a diet 100% of the time but I am going back on the tablets to see if my weight loss starts again. I am going to speak to the Neuro about it when I see her next month but I thought I would run it past the real experts first.
Hope everyones having a good week.
