How to deal with the high altitude in Colorado

Jump to last reply

On a whim I booked a flight to Denver for May 19. We have a week off and that was the cheapest airfare. We have never been to Colorado (except for a day trip to Durango and Mesa Verde). Both of us are in our young 60's.

I do tend to get very bad headaches when I hit any kind of high altitude. Have gotten them in places like the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Flagstaff etc. but I have always been able to get out of these places in a day. I have been reading that all of Colorado is very high. I can't imagine a week of headaches, fatigue and feeling like crap.

So any suggestions would be helpful. I know water is one of the main ingredients. I have also been reading that gingko helps - taking it 5 days before and while there. Anyone tried this or other products. Can't take the Diamax prescription for altitude it is sulfa based.

Any body else have some natural products or suggestions.

Has anyone any suggestions as to which area is the least affected by altitude. Would it be the southern part of the state. Would we be better off just sticking to that area?

Our trip will include several days of hiking so i really do need something.
Thanks
