I am so sorry to hear about this pseudotumor cerebri that you have mentioned. The mainstay of treating this condition is Diamox. You are already on this drug. Though it causes side effects, I will recommend that you try o continue with. There are no other possible home remedies unless you would want to consider some surgical interventions. I generally do not recommend surgery unless all medical options fail.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thank you so much for using our services and feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
