I've tried the antacids without success. Short of going to lower altitudes the only item I've had success with is Diamox and generic equivalents.

Re: Altitiude sickness: Medicine

When we were at the Safari Club Inter. wilderness school in Wyoming at nearly 8000 feet the main treatment was WATER, WATER, and more water. Start in the morning and drink as much as you can all day. We had people that lived at sea level at the school and no one suffered but we went through a lot of water. Good luck on your hunt!

+1 ... Our group all live at approx 800 ft elevation. We camp at 8500 ft and hunt up from there. We down a LOT of water on the drive out, take water with us everywhere we go when we are in Colorado, and set up drink coolers with decaf sweet tea and kool aid on the front porch. In three years, no one has had any debilitating effects related to AMS.

A friend of mine is a serious backpacker who has hiked the Annapurna Circuit a couple times (up to 18,000 ft). His advice is to drink water until your urine comes out clear. And then drink some more....

I prefer chopped onions with my Menudo. Unfortunately, I have not found anyone selling it "up on the mountain"....
