Links to Other Sites of Interest
In addition to this general article on altitude sickness, see the section on
"Ascending slowly is the best way to avoid altitude sickness.
Avoiding strenuous activity such as skiing,
hiking, etc. in the first 24 hours
at high altitude reduces the symptoms of AMS. Alcohol and sleeping pills
respiratory depressants, and thus slow down the acclimatization process and
should be avoided.
Alcohol also tends to cause dehydration and exacerbates AMS.
Thus, avoiding alcohol consumption in the first
24-48 hours at a higher altitude is optimal."
Altitude Sickness and Ibuprofen
See this NPR summary of a study that found ibuprofen to be useful in lowering the possibility of altitude sickness.
