  • Roaring in the ears from tramadol (taken with dexamethasone)
    It seems the roaring in my right ear happens more around taking the tramadol (2-3/day). Of course, I have a (5) day regiment of dexamethasone at (2/day) so maybe there's a connection. This was prescribed by my GP ( highly regarded) for severe lower back bulging disc pain and down left leg. Also prescribed tizanidine for muscle spasms and gabapentin for, maybe nerve swelling? Both at 2/day but I take less of these two.

    Back pain much better but have the roaring in right ear and can't sleep much. Also doing the Dr recommended exercises daily. Will follow up with chiropractic if this doesn't get me there.

    This is a chronic condition, maybe 20 years, no specific injury, just an accumulation of doing dumb things in my youth.
  • Weighted feeling in legs
    I was prescribed tizanidine for lower back pain. I have sciatic nerve issues and fibromyalgia. I also have ptsd and just started remembering skiing accident that I had 19 years ago at age of 15 where I suspect concussion and sinal injury that was left untreated do to to medical neglect (waiting on x-ray results). I thought I was having muscle memories until I seen commercial about varicose vein removal and how weighted or heavy leg feelings where disappeared after surgery. I have very noticeable and thick as a snake varicose veins in my legs. I was looking up side effects I have been having dizziness, numbness in back, nausea, trouble bm while taking pill and hot flashes when messing a dose. I thought why not check deep vein thrombosis (which I suspect I have because of varicose veins). Low and behold there are others with this problem. So now I can add that to list. When I miss a dose my legs feel weighted down. I have only been on tizanidine for 1 month and 2 weeks. Very low dose to start 2mg 3x day. Only other meds are vitamins and metformin (which I am on another break from for 3 days now). I feel side effects of tizanidine are worse than benifits.
  • Clarithromycin hallucinations and nightmares.
    Auditory hallucinations, nightmares and delirium more so at night.
  • Clarithromycin and vision
    Within hour of taking first dose, flashing phenomena commenced in both eyes. Plus ringing in the ears. Continued to worsen over 60 minutes. Then disappeared but onset of severe headache, which has continued. I have in history of migraine.

    12 hours later, have sore eyes and neck (similar to with get with flu). Does appear to be hitting the bug though!

    2nd dose has restarted ear ringing .
  • Spiriva caused me to swell up like a hippo.
    My Doctor prescribed spiriva to help me breathe due to asthma/cold. I never smoked but my parents and friends were heavy smokers. I used the spiriva 3 times. Once a day for 3 days then I started swelling in my ankles and the swelling continued until my face, hands arms... basically I was so swollen I gained 29 pounds in two days. My doctor put me on lasix and potassium for several weeks. I quit using the spiriva when my other doctor asked if I was on any new meds. Spiriva was the only new medicine. When I stopped using it the swelling went away.
