Meds for PTC

I was dx with PTC Nov 2009. I went to eye doc for exam in Aug and found papilledema. Vision graying, tunneling and visual fields worsening in left eye. Had MRI done and lab work...all negative. LP done and opening pressure at 310 for first one and second one 2 wks later at 300. Was put on diamox and got up to a dose of 2grams a day but unable to tolerate drug. What is second line of therapy? Doc wants a burst of steroids for 12 days?  Lasix script given but what dose is suitable? Have lots of questions. My neurologist and Neuro Opthamologist are not seeing eye to eye on treatment. How often do you have visual fields tested?
