Have you had altitude sickness in the Alps?

Jump to last reply

Have not read much on this Forum on altitude sickness. Had a bad chronic headache in the higher Rockies some years ago (+10,000 ft.) and wondering if I should bring/take preventative remedy beforehand: Diamox (actually a glaucoma drug) was prescribed for me at Vail and is effective. Now, we are not hikers, but hope to be at the summits of Pilatus, Jungfrau and Schilthorn. Yes, stay hydrated, do not consume too much alcohol are the expected guidelines, but any other tips would be much appreciated.
