I found out that I have Meniere's Disease and so the Dr. prescribed Maxcide and I am on a low sodium diet. He didn't say to only take it for a time. However, someone told me that you are only suppose to take water pills for 10 days. Also, that when you take it you don't get all the nutrients from your food. I haven't had any side effects accept last night I got light headed when I stood up. I have been taking it for about 2 1/2 weeks.
First of all save your money. Use any drug over the counter for sea sickness, or allergy capsules-antihistamine. Your pharmacist can help you with that. I can get it less than $4.00. As for your water pill you can know when you have too much water in your system. But for now take it daily and check your potassium.
I have had Meniers since 1992 and has lost about 20% over all hearing loss. But the loss has stopped for the last 10 years. I go to the House Ear Institute Clinic in Los Angeles where they do allot of research in Meniers. So if you have any questions, I can ask Dr. Slattery who is the head research in this problem. People come from all over the world to study the latest in ear research. I will make you a friend on this site so incase you want to ask me any questions.
Wish you the best.
