  • Does clonazapam cause tinnitus or ringing in the ears?
    Patient fell a year ago and injured her neck and broke a bone in her arm. Has had severe pain in her neck. Getting acupuncture frequently. Recently tried to change medication from Valium to Clonazepam, and developed severe tinnitus. She said she only missed two days of Valium. She also says she has skipped days without taking valium and never had a problem. She says Clonazepam caused the tinnitus. I can't find anything that states a side effect of clonazepam is tinnitus.
  • Can xeralto and an antihistimine cause dizziness, shortness of breath, tiredness, etc.
    I also take a blood thinner, xeralto, for a-fib. I have been using a mouthwash of an antihistimine antacid mix for a day and a half.
  • Would the tinnitus abate with if i discontinue methotrexate?
    I've just begun my 4th year of Methotrexate for Rheumatoid issue, but it also alleviated my psoriasis. I am hesitant to discontinue because the benefits are great. However, the tinnitus is becoming unbearable and almost maddening. I will more likely consider talking to my doctor about changing medications if 1. The tinnitus subsides with the discontinuance of Methotrexate and if 2. Other rheumatoid medication would not have the same issues with tinnitus. Just discovered the possible connection minutes ago and am eager and hopeful. Please help. Thank you. -Celeste
  • Does anyone have persistent, ringing tinnitus while taking this drug? (1 answer)
    I was prescribed Atenolol years ago for tachycardia. I took it for many years with little to no side effects, aside from tiredness. I began having PVCs and later was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. My doctor put me on 5 mg. Bystolic and the tinnitus started. I took it about 1 year. My BP wasn't ideal, so he upped it to mg. and the ringing worsened. It's much louder. The report says this drug isn't ototoxic, but I never had tinnitus before taking it. Anyone else????

  • Does zoloft cause ringing in the ears, like tinnitus? i've been on it for a month and noticed the ringing in the ears about a week ago, and it's just constant ringing and it's driving me insane. (1 answer)
    I've been on most of the medications for more than a year and it hasn't been that bad getting used to them. But I've been on Zoloft and ambien for about a month now, and I've been noticing a lot of side effects. The one I just recently noticed and that has been driving me completely insane, is the ringing in the ears. It's been about a week now and I just don't know what to do anymore. If it is the Zoloft then I can finally just stop taking it and make this stop. If anyone has an answer or knows what to do, PLEASE help. I'm at my wits end.

  • Omeprazole or pantoprazole?
    I take an oral contraceptive, Diane-35 ED, which is not in the list of drugs to choose from on this site.

    Recently, the medication I was taking for my stomach ulcer (Omeprazole) became unavailable in my country of residence and was replaced by Patoprazole. I started taking it yesterday morning and by midday today the side effects were unbearable. I am nauseous, have diarrhea, and a very severe headache. This didn't happen with Omeprazole. Do you think this is a drug interaction or is there some difference between the two that I am perhaps sensitive to?

  • What foods aggreviate or reduce tinnitus



  • After being on zoloft (sertraline) for 19 years, i now notice multiple side effects and i want to get off (2 answers)
    I have been on Zoloft (sertraline) for 19 years for chronic depression. When I first started taking Zoloft, it made a huge positive impact on my life. It was a miracle drug for me. I believe it saved my life.

    Ten or so years ago it suddenly stopped working. My doctor had me try several other SSRIs-- Paxil, Prozac, Celexa. None worked. After a few months I went back on Zoloft and like magic it worked again.

    Six or so years ago, I wanted to get off sertraline to see if I could live without it. I made the mistake of dropping it cold turkey and not consulting my doctor. I experienced the infamous "brain zaps," vivid and violent dreams, anxiety, anger, and depression. On the other hand, I had more energy, lost weight, slept great, and had increased libito/more satisfying sexual response. Still, my anxiety and anger were intense. My family rightfully became fed up with my unpredictable behavior and after several weeks I started taking the medication again. Life returned to normal.

    Over the last several years I have experienced tinnitus, sexual dysfunction, weight gain, night sweats, and diarrhea. I am occasionally anxious or depressed, but nothing severe or unmanageable. The tinnitus has become particularly pronounced over the last several weeks. I am not certain that these symptoms are related to sertraline, but I would like to find out. I would like to stop taking sertraline once again. I know that I must taper off very slowly. I also plan to do so under the supervision of my general practitioner.

    My questions are many. Has anyone else been on sertraline for as long as 19 years and successfully quit? Is there a drug that will help soften the sertraline withdrawal symptoms? Should I be unable to quit sertraline, are their other SSRIs that might have fewer side effects? Should I do this with my GP's help or should I seek the help of a psychiatrist?

    Thanks in advance for your responses.

  • I have been taking ambien for years my doctor just gave me flomax to take is it safe to take together

  • Concerned about possible rebound rls with daily rx for rls
    I've suffered with RLS for many years, before I knew it had a name and before my doctors took me seriously about it. The only thing I knew was that taking antihistamines would start an episode. This lasted from around 16 yrs old to about 35. I have also suffered from migraines that were infrequent until I turned 29. While my migraines are awful, I have had an increase in RLS that has been nearly unbearable at times. This began to get worse as I started decreasing long term narcotic for chronic daily migraine after being on it for a few years. I have tried mirapex, Requip, and Neupro, and also stayed on Klonopin as there might be a RLS benefit. I have pretty consistently gotten worse with RLS. I wonder about rebound effects, and also combining mirapex with Requip? If anyone has info I'd like to read about it.


  • Tramadal & ambien: rather severe it one or the other or both? (1 answer)
    Taking Tramadol 2x/day..50mg I think. Ambien 1x/night to help sleep. Depression...feels like he is going to die...brings him to tears. Working but very worried. No appetite. Family problems going on for some time but always able to handle in the past..actually somewhat better at present. But depression remains. Originally took T. for back problems a year or so ago. When last prescription ran out he was in terribly shape...said like a deep dark hole he was in. Had refilled and better. Afraid to stop Tramadol ... fear of getting worse so doesn't want to go to Dr who might say stop Tramadol. Could it be Ambien interaction?

  • Does anyone take both viibryd and zoloft together?
    I am now taking 10mg of Viibryd. I tried 20 and have too much anxiety and irritability. I went off 100mg of zoloft. During the transition, I just started one and went off the other at the same time. I actually felt better the first week than when the zoloft wore off. Just wondering if anyone takes another med with the Viibryd such as zoloft?
  • Has anyone go chronic tinnitus from piroxicam ? (2 answers)
    I was prescribed, for the first ever time, Piroxicam (NSAID). This was for a groin strain. I could not get to see my family GP of 20 years (he claims he won't prescribe the drug) and at short notice I was able to see a GP whom had been in Aust. for about 6 months.

    After taking only 5 tablets at the prescribed 1 per day, I suffered from severe disequilibrium ( described at the time as Vertigo), acute Tinnitus, headaches and feeling nauseous. I was assured by the prescribing Dr. that the Tinnitus would go away after about 6 months.

    22 months later I still have acute tinnitus (approx. 6,272 Hz at about 85-90 Db - constant)

    Neuromonics has been prescribed and I am now about 7 weeks into the 6-8- month program. No change as yet, (Increase if anything)

    I describe it best as like Chinese Water Torture, and I have made 3 attempts at Self Slaughter (to quote Stephen Fry's description) during the last few months. I have seen ENT's, a Neurologist and psychiatrist and have spent 6 weeks in mental health care clinic.

    I was advised on 19-8-13 by my ENT that there is nothing they can do.

    Is there anybody out there whom has had the same re-action to Piroxicam ?

  • Can provigil be prescribed for someone with general anxiety and high bp
    I was given provigil years ago, and it helped me so much with being up and alert all day. Insurance after 2 years decided not to cover it anymore. I did take clonazpam as well as lunesta at that time. I have been taking propanolol for 5 years now to control my blood pressure. I am a anxious person in general, but I don't have overwhelming anxiety attacks anymore. Sadly I take the klonipin basically because I have been on it for so long. My body has become addicted, and the physician says the only way they feel that would be safe to get off would be to go in house for monitoring because of the risk of seizure. I still with Ambien sleep 4 hours if I'm lucky. Now at 3 in the afternoon it's so hard to stay awake. I'm absolutely worthless the last two hours at work, and I'm so tired until I lay down and my mind starts racing. I don't even want to mention to my current physician if it's not a possibility. My bp is under control with my medicine. I have never found a medication that can keep me asleep 6 hours straight. I'm tired and irritable, and frustrated that I'm to fatigued to get what I need to do done. I can remember life was better and I was a happier person when I was on provigil before. I'm tired of being tired.

  • I need some advice for klonopin wd after 10 years of having taken it. currently taking 1.5-2 mg daily.
    I suffer (or so the dr. says I suffer) from Fibromylagia, IBS, and Polyarthralgia. One doctor said I had RA--just unbelievable. There are no naturopaths or homeopaths within 100 miles of me. I want to get off all meds. (even the MS I take for HBP bc I think my BP is high due to these drugs) eventually and find herbs, exercise, meditation/yoga to help me get healthy and take the place of Big Pharma. My Dr. won't do this for me due, and I believe it's due to fear of the potential fallout of WD . After I'm off the Clonazepam, Zolpidem is next. I want my life back. I missed SO much work this year without pay. Glad to still have my job!!! I am taking a few months off and know this is the time to do this, but need support and hope I can find it here. Thanks for any help/advice you can offer me.
  • Can vyvanse cause ocd
    I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder 8 years ago and have been stable on my medications for 6 years now. Over the years I have discovered new issues such as social anxiety disorder and ADHD. I recently noticed over the past few months that I have obsessive-compulsive tendencies. These seem to be getting worse. Am I just being paranoid? Is this caused by one of my medications? Is this something I should talk to my doctor about? I don't want him taking away any of my current meds.
