Hi,

Yes, but it would only work for a week and the fluid would build back up. This is a serious condition that will cause dementia and death if not treated fairly soon.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Matt Wachsman, Addiction Medicine Specialist
