  • Benzonatate visual disturbance
    I was given this for a severe sinus infection along with an antibiotic so I could sleep without coughing. I realized after the third day on it that it was the reason I was having a snowy tv screen like effect in my vision, slight nausea, and a persistent headache. I originally attributed this to the antibiotic. I have a similar reaction to mucinex and bladder spasm controller medicines. I have hypothyroidism and celiac disease as well as ADHD.

  • I now know of 3 other people who have experienced sudden hearing loss from this drug. When another doctor tried to give it to me and I told him why I wouldn't take it he said it was all in my head!!! So, doctors are not reporting this adverse side effect.
