reduce white blood cell count to 3300
From this study (4 months ago):
Doctors asked if I had an infection. I saw an infectious disease doctor and he tested everything and said no infections, hidden or obvious. WBC and platelet counts elevate when i am on diamox. Doctors do not beleive me since diamox is known to decrease WBC, however, when I weaned myself off it slowly and was off of diamox for a period of 3 months, my WBC and platelts counts returned to normal. I have to be on diamox now for papilledema, pseudo tumor cerebi since Topomax did not work for me. I lsot the weight I needed to control the pressure, however, at the dosage needed, I could not teolerate it so I had to go to Diamox until I get more weight off to resolve pseudo tumor cerebri.
