Is there a remedy in Ecuador for altitude sickness?

Many expats recommend coca tea or coca leaves.  There is also coca candy that seems to help.  Coca leaves can be purchased at the Supermercado on Leather Street in Cotacachi or a health food store in Ibarra.  Some recommend Ginko Biloba while others believe the best remedy is to simply rest and drink lots of liquids.
