In brief: Pseudotumor cerebri

Important aspects of treatment for pseudotumor cerebri are weight loss and treatment with a water pill such as acetazolamide or diamox.
Regular follow up with an ophthalmologist is necessary to check your visual acuity, visual fields and resolution of the papilledema.
