my girlfriend was diagnosed with pseudotumor cerebri less than a week ago... is slowly increasing the dosage (per docs request) . however her doctor saw yesterday (after being on meds for almost 4 days) that her optic nerve was still swollen and was even slightly discolored. so im here in hopes that someone has some "good" news to this not so great time... we are just wanting to know how long before these meds start taking the full effect... (she also had a lp done before starting the meds which brought her fluid level down to about half of what it was)
