I'm 82 years old and have severe tinnitus which prevents me from sleeping at night. For the past year I have been taking benadryl which is very effective in helping my sleep. I have not had any side effects until now, but I suddenly have developed a musty taste in my mouth and foods that used to taste great don't anymore. While there is plenty to read about this association, it seems strange that it would happen after taking benadryl for so long. Hope others in the group have comments on this.
I have been on many prescriptions over the last 8 years, due to severe pain ( in stomach, legs and back) . Severe Restless Leg Syndrome is being mildly helped by Gabopentin. I am having gambling problems since taking Gabopentin (About 3 or 4 years). Does anyone know what other drugs cause gambling problems? I live in Las Vegas (About 34 years), but never had urges like these. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you, -Roger
