Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitor Water Pill Or Diuretic
Is it true Thiamine is a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor (seen a couple of studies) and if so, could it be helpful in idiopathic intracranial hypertensio?

Question unclear: Toradol is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory pain reliever.Taking a 'water pill' would likely have no effect on an allergic reaction.Anti-histamines like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) may help-but if the allergy is 'severe' you risk anaphylaxis w/asphyxiation or a Stevens-Johnson type reaction, among others.Seek medical attention IMMEDIATELY if you have taken Toradol & are swelling, having difficulty breathing, etc. ...Read more
