Its definitely worth trying. I’m extremely curious as to how you get on with this drug. Let me dig up a paper which demonstrated how effective it can be …
… here you go. Please ignore and don’t panic when they talk about ‘Meniere’s’ disease. SEH is not Meniere’s but they apparently both share the issue of Hydrops. If you get anxious reading this stuff, close it and go do something nice and distracting:
The big takeaway of this paper is showing how reversible the condition can be, so it should give many Hydrops sufferers hope.
The other webpage to read is:
I’m not suggesting you have a ‘teleconsultation’ with this guy, I cannot vouch for him, but his page seems to be very informative and raises lots of interesting questions. Its overall message is also positive - it’s reversible!
If I don’t continue to recover slowly (and heck I’m doing pretty well - no meds and no migraines, just variable, sometimes annoying tinnitus and slight imbalance and motion intolerance at the moment) I will consider trialling your diuretic. My doctor didn’t advise me to take anything at last visit because he said ‘all medicines have other health impacts’. Well that may be so but I want to get rid of this stupid condition and then I won’t have to take it anymore!
Be sure to drink lots and lots!
