I'm on Diamox (acetazolamide) 250mg tid, for Chiari malformation. I'm wondering if dandelion root tea will effect my medication?

In brief: Chiari malformation

Yes. Dandelion root is a diuretic and so is Diamox (acetazolamide) (actazolamide).
Also, dandelion root may slow the breakdown of Diamox (acetazolamide) and lead to undesirable side-effects. Discuss the dandelion root with your neurosurgeon/neurologist.
