It can cause kidney and liver damage, so really depends on your medical history and functioning. I assume that they're doing blood tests to monitor kidney function, so you may just want to ask why they're limiting the dosage. Take documentation supporting higher doses with you and see if they'll be willing to work with you. Good luck!!!

I take a generic for Diamox also. There is some issues with those made by Lannett (who makes mine :roll: ), that those by Taro are better.
And yes, 1000 is definitely not a max dose for this drug. Do ask your doctors why they want to limit it, especially if you are tolerating the drug well. I go for blood tests, checking my electrolytes every 3 to 4 months to watch kidney function. I also take a daily pot chlor supplement (prescription).
