Dealing with altitude

I dont usually have time to acclimate the day before a high dayhike. Any suggestions for meds/supplements to mitigate, either before or during the hike?

Thanks for your thoughts and experiences, Tim in California

I think the best way to prepare yourself is to be good and hydrated, and well rested. Practicing deep breathing couldn't hurt either because you will absorb more oxygen in your blood stream with expanded lung capacity.
