Hey, I am heading to vail, from New Jersey next week and am very concerned with altitude sickness. I have got it BAD in the past, vomitting, headaches, collapsed on the mountain and had ski patrol take me down. This was when I was a teenager (I a now 27).
I have always had some ford of altitude sickness when I head out there to varying degrees. I have taken Acetazolamide in the past and remember it helping. Other times I just relied on oxygen, but it has been about 10 years since I have been out there and am wondering if I should get myself a prescription of Acetazolamide or if I should give ginko biloba a try. I do not remember any bad side effect from the diamox, but I would like to go natural if I can.
Does anyone have any personal experiences with either?
