Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Has anyone taking eliquis suffered from itching? not rashes, jsut irritating itching?
Going crazy with itching since starting eilquis..Doctors insist that's not a side effect. I insist since it's happening to me, it IS, even if it was never documented when in trials. Since it' happening to me, a patient, than I consider it a side effect. Anyone else???
- Does anyone have persistent, ringing tinnitus while taking this drug?
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????

lexapro started only a week ago, feel tightness in jaw and headache, sleeplessness, not sure if lexapro is good for me if i cannot ever take an aspirin or tylenol for sleep.

- Ringing in the ears from linzess
I started Linzess about a month ago, taking it about every three days. It was my miracle pill, until recently when I started having ringing in my ears. I am stopping the medication in hopes that the ringing will subside.
- Side effects of using terazosin
I have been on terazosin for 9 days. The ringing in my ears is unbearable, dizzy in the night if I wake up to use the bathroom, intermittent throbbing heartbeat. Also very significant is dramatic decrease in libido and difficulty achieving satisfaction. Dose started at 5 mg at night, reduced to 2 mg. at night after two days and ringing does not go away. I have permission from my doctor to discontinue use and replace with Lisinopril.
- Still ill after several years (1 response)
I became ill several years ago.
It all started with a head cold that lasted a few months and left me with Tinnitus and chronic sinusitis.
After a nose operation and many visits to the doc and hospital, I am no closer to felling better or being cured.
My doc gave me Beconase Aq at first and this made me very unwell, causing me fatigue which would last for a few days. I'm still searching for help.
- Shortness of breath after taking levothyroxine for 8-10 yrs.
I have been experiencing shortness of breath lately when taking the levothyroxine. If I stop taking it for a couple of days my shortness of breath is pretty much gone.
- My memory loss due to omeprazole
I took omeprazole for 20 years until I developed edema of the lower extremities. I started having memory problems right away and they still persist even though I have not taken omeprazole now for about 6 yrs. I am hoping it will dissipate or clear my system. I do not have a constant memory problem but rather problems remembering words from time to time. I ended up having to take magnesium for leg cramps that developed from taking omeprazole.

Sometimes hips come out of joint and pop back in while sleeping/resting.
From this study (3 months ago):
I had a radiation treatment 2 summers ago to stop the function of my thyroid due to Grave's dis ease (HYPERTHYROIDISM). I went from brand name synthroidown to a generic version they was switched by my doctor to Tirosint in June 2014. I noticed mild dizziness only occasionally until about a month ago (Sept 2014). I woke up around 3 am with sever verigorous and extreme nausea. The emergency room doc said I had disengaged ear crystals and gave me some Internet printouts of the Dix Hall Pyke and Eply maneuvers to diagnose and to help move them to a place in my ear where they would no longer cause harm. It was suggested to go to an ENT if the symptoms didn't go away. I was prescribed Meclizine and Lorzepam. They monitored me after taking Meclizine and although it didn't take away the dizziness I wasn't as nauseous. Instead of waiting I went right to an ENt in front of the hospital. Hthat doctor also told me about the crystals and scheduled me with another ENT for a hearing and other test. That doc confirmed BPPV (positional vertigo). I made another appt with the first ENT doc bease I believed the positional vertigo wasn't a correct diagnosis. I asked again if he would please check my thyroid blood work to see if maybe I was having a problem with Tirosint which is the only relatively new drug I had changed in my life. He agred and also signed me up for an MRI tof rule out a brain tumor just in case. I got a call from his office soon after to come in to discuss my blood test results. I asked them to send them to my endo. My endo doc called me that night. HE told me to immediately stop taking the Tirosint and that my hyperthyroid is had returned. I went from 100 mcg of synthroid to 88 mcg on Tirosint. HE said let's get the drug out of your system for 2 weeks and we will check your blood again. I go on Oct 18 for the blood work. The following Monday after the MRI the expedited the results to the ENT and I went to see him for the results. HE showed me my T3 and T4 results and also revease I now had a brain cyst or tumor in my right temporal lobe. HE said I'm also diagnosing you with Menieres which is most likely due to the return of your hyperthyroidsim. HE said "I'm interested to know if the Meniere's will stop after your endo gets your thyroid back under control." He asked for me to return to him in a year and said that I should follow up with a neurologist in 6 months. The ringing is now in both ears. The vertigo is always with me. I feel unbalanced. I have diarrhea all the time, headaches, blurred vision. I know it's the Tirosint! Is there anyone else on here that develope brain cysts or tumors as a result of Tirosint? They said that can't rule out a low grade glioma. I'm a single mom of 3 children ages 11, 14, and 15. I'm a science teacher and have only taught about 5 years. This is ruining my life!
