I often go to 3000 M and feel great but I quite often get a head ache as I get back down, but that could also be the allnight trekking that causes it.
The first time I went to 5000M I thought my head was going to explode, luckily we were just dumping gear, and could turn around and get down, otherwise I thought something really bad was going to happen.
Trying to sleep at 6000M was really confusing, I couldn't understand my own symptoms, I didn't know if I was too hot or too cold or breathing too hard or too little. I'd wake up gasping. Half the time I didn't know if I was awake or asleep. Just not used to it I spose.

A couple of times I've tried Diamox (many years ago) ,and I would not reccomend it. Although I did have a really cool trippy night on Kilimanjaro after taking a tab.
If you try it at sea level first you can recognise the effects so as not to get them mixed up with other symptoms.
