Acetazolamide (Brand Name: Diamox) is a "water pill" (diuretic) used to prevent and reduce the symptoms of altitude sickness. Acetazolamide is also used with other medications to treat a certain type of eye problem (open-angle glaucoma). Acetazolamide is available in generic form.

Dear Sir, I am from India. I am Senthil Murugan Roberts. My wife is suffering from severe head ache for the past 5 months. The pain spreads throughout the whole body. We have approached all the chief doctors in our place. They all said that there is nothing severe in her. But in the meantime, we have made Angio and checked whether if there is any blockage. But there is no such thing also. We have checked Ortho, Gynecologist, Endocrinologist, Neurologists, and several general physicians. But nobody has still found the problem. In the meantime, we have a Big research Institute cum Hospital namely JIPMER in our place Puducherry, India. There we have shown in all the departments and finally through one Neurologist they said that there is some problem in the eyes. So she went to the eye section (Ophthalmology) and they made several tests. And they said that there is some blood leakage in the eye. It is not from the eyes, but from the brain. And further they told nothing to my wife and simply given one B-Complex tablet along with one more tablet called Diamox 250 mg (Acetazolamide IP) for one month. And they advised my wife to come to hospital immediately if there is any emergency like sudden vision loss or if there is any kind of paralysis in the hands and limbs. So we are very confused that is there any Brain Haemorrhage? Because they said that the blood is filling in the eyes and there will be vision loss sometimes. But when we took MRI scan brain (Plain) there is no Haemorrhage. And again we took one CT Scan brain. In that also they said that there is no Haemorrhage. We are so much confused. But the pain in the brain has not reduced a single percent till now for the past 5 months. What shall we do further? Please help us in this regard and advise us a good opinion. I have enclosed the reports and the diagnosis for your ready reference. Kindly go through and save my wife's life with your valuable consultation. Yours sincerely, Senthil Murugan Roberts.

If she is obese, let her reduce weight. These will help in Tension headache. Check BP daily for 1 week. She requires regular follow up Wish her speedy recovery.

When To Opt For IVF?

When To Opt For IVF?

When Should We Opt for Ivf

 IVF is the most refined treatment but not the first of treatment.

It has to be done as per the indication only.Sometimes delay in taking decisions may end up in opting for third party measures so what one need is correct and guided approach.

As patient we have many queries as why IVF only so here are the reasons as to when your clinician will advise you for same- 

1)Fallopian tube damage or pathology-

Tubal block on X RAY(HSG) doesn’t always mean opt for IVF directly.In that case decision is taken as per level and grade of block ,age of female and married years besides cofactors 

•If tubal surgery is not  possible then,IVF is method of choice.

•In case of problem in tubal function  even after tubal surgery, IVF is method of choice after an infertility duration of 2 years or longer.

 Depending on the female age IVF can be done after a shorter duration of infertility.

Actually Tubal factor was the first indication when IVF was started in world to help childless couples

2) Unexplained infertility (idiopathic)-

When exact obvious cause cannot be diagnosed after all basic work up of couple.This is considered as most frustrating condition for both the doctor and the couples and adds to stress.It contributes to 10-15% of all infertility cases

  IVF is indicated if the duration  of infertility is 3 years or longer.  But If the woman is older than 36 years, IVF maybe   considered earlier.

3)Male factor-

Here couple has two options- Either go for donor sperm or Go for IVF/ICSI as per the Sperm count.

Other option is SSR(Surgical sperm retreival) Provided doctor has expertise to do the same

What we focus in the semen is TMC-Total Motile Sperm count-This is the basis to take decision like mentioned below-

Total motile sperm count   < 1 million: first treatment of choice isICSI•

TMC > 1 and < 10 million: IVF can be performed if infertility duration is 2 years or longer•

TMC > 10 million: treat as unexplained infertility 

4) Endometriosis-

In case of mild or moderate endometriosis treat as unexplained infertility.•In case of severe endometriosis policy treat as tubal pathology

5)Cervical factor / immunological infertility- After an infertility duration of 2 years, IVF is indicated. This may be considered sooner if the woman is over 36 years of age.

6.Hormonal disturbances-

Like in PCOS if after multiple ovulation induction cycles patient fails to get pregnant then one has to plan IVF.No of cycles of Ovulation induction vary asper female age partner but shouldn’t exceed 4 cycles as after that there is no benefit of doing so.
