Default Altitude Sickness

Has anyone suffered from altitude sickness before?

There's a good chance we'll be going from sea level (now) to 11,000 feet (destination) over the course of a plane ride.

I'm not stopping any place else to get acclimated.

The highest up I've ever been is sea level to 6,500 feet elevation.

I have asthma, and I've researched that it shouldn't cause much of an issue.

I also plan on getting acetazolamide prescribed by my doctor- it's a medicine that combats altitude sickness. Locally, coca leaf tea is consumed to help with it as well.

So... has anyone from here suffered from it? Do you have any hints on how to make things easier?
