- 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.
- Has anyone ever had numbness in the feet that was caused by taking asacol, and did anyone ever find out that it somehow blocks the absorption of vitamin b in some way? (1 answer)
I have had some numbness in my right foot for a long time due to a broken foot that was set wrong and now sits in my shoes strangely, causing some pain and numbness and swelling. However, recently I've had some numbness in my left foot. After seeing a neurologist on a different matter, she indicated that taking a generic derivative of Asacol called Sulfasalazine EC 500 mg, the drug might be blocking the absorption of Vitamin B12, which she said may cause numbness in my feet. Has anyone had any experience or outcomes similar to mine? If so, what did you do or not do based on your findings and your doctor's? I hate to stop taking the generic drug as it has been quite effective for many years and it is the least costly to me.

- Asacol causing disorientation
Been taking Asacol for 3 weeks, I have noticed that I am experiencing confusion, disorientation, and lethargy. It's helping with my colitis, but I am becoming concerned whether I should be driving. I have forgotten where I was going on 2 occasions now. I also had a scare when I shut my eyes to rinse shampoo out of hair while showering. I teatered over, luckily I caught myself. Could of been a big disaster.
- Lialda - encephalopathy side effect
I developed a severe case of encephalitis 2 weeks after starting Lialda in July 2014 for microscopic colitis. I was hospitalized for 6 days and had vision and balance problems as a result. It took me 2 months to regain my strength and still suffer from fatigue. My neurologist did some research on Lialda and discovered it could cause encephalopathy. I am now seeing a neurologist for side effects from the encephalitis and my microscopic colitis is still not under control.
- Bone infections involving my teeth crohns and prednisone over the past 12 years
Dentist  tell me the abscesses are in the bones and I've had several root canals, bridges, bone surgeries that last 3 years, teeth became so mobile after the bone economy I had them pulled and now a partial one month ago. Bone loss etc. I don't have the ridges in my mouth that most Crohn patients have. Appears to affect the upper teeth.
Crohns diagnosed at the age of 39. Moderate to severe.
Dentists state the problem is the use of prednisone and having Crohn.
- Apriso skin reaction
Began the Apriso late September 2013. Within a couple of weeks had symptoms of a constantly runny nose and sinus pressure. By mid-November 2013, I began have redness of cheeks and nose. Then a progression of the redness with small red swollen blood vessels to surface. There was a burning. Special medications were prescribed thinking that Rosacea was occurring, but I stopped the Apriso on my own, went back to some remaining pills of Asacol I still had and the sinusitis and constant dripping of nose stopped along with tremendous reduction of facial redness.
- I experienced fatigue, muscle aches and twitches with asacol
Was taking 2 tablets 3x per day for a month and a half and began having muscle twitches, muscle and joint aches and fatigue severe enough people noticed I couldn't find correct words to finish my sentences. I stopped taking it and it has taken almost three weeks to feel human and energetic again. People thought I had Mono. It DID however put my colitis into remission!
