- Does anyone have persistent, ringing tinnitus while taking this drug? (1 answer)
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????

- Complera weight gain
Switched from Atripla to Complera about 4 months ago due to neuronal toxicity. Started Complera and gained over twenty pounds in a month and continue to gain. I have always been thin with a very high metabolism. Now I have to watch ever single thing I eat.
- Terbinafine hydrochloride
I would not reccomend this at all. I was described this drug 6months ago. Bad side effects still ongoing rapid weight gain and water retention in putting on 2 stone in less than 6months. No menstrual in ya year Bloatingin the face arms legs and gut. Been to the doctors said nothing can be done so how much longer can you put up with ffeeling like this.should not be prescribed. Makes you feel dreadfull.
- Bystolic for treatment of psvt
To my frustration, PSVT symptoms were ignored by heart specialists in Houston for some two years. After moving to Kansas City, I described the episodes of doubling heart rate when at rest to my general practitioner. He immediately recognized the problem and prescribed 5 mg Bystolic and I've been symptom free now for over four years and have seen no side effects. My question is: Why isn't the generic version Nebivolol available in the U.S? A 90-day supply costs only $50 (USD) when ordered from a Canadian Pharmacy.
- Lyrica varied widely
I was prescribed Lyrica for treatment of chronic pain. It was ineffective, but it knocked out the symptoms of interstitial. However, it also caused rapid weight gain (I went from 110 to 130 lbs. in just a few weeks) and my ankles started to swell. The pain doctor advised me to discontinue the drug, but the urologist suggested lowering the dose. I did, and the swelling went down. I weighed myself daily and watched what I ate, and my weight returned to normal within a month. Subsequently, I continued taking the lower dose and had no further problems. Then I developed severe spinal stenosis, and my dosage of Lyrica was increased to six 75 capsules daily, in addition to 480 mg of morphine sulphate. I tolerated the Lyrica well. After surgery, however, my ankles began to swell again, and although I didn't have a problem with weight gain, I developed a bright red rash from ankles to knees. I dropped the dosage of Lyrica to 50 mg twice daily, and had no further side effects. The rash simply disappeared, with no damage to the skin. Following the surgery, I was able to titrate off morphine completely. I continue to take Lyrica twice daily. It doesn't seem to affect pain (I still ache a bit, as I have degenerative changes in all joints) but it does dampen peripheral neuropathy, which I experience both in my toes and balls of my feet. It also dampens the neuropathy in my forehead, where I had four surgeries to remove a malignant melanoma. I have had no side effects other than those mentioned, and find it interesting the I could tolerate a high dosage of Lyrica prior to surgery, but after surgery could not, and that adverse side effects varied not only with the dosage but with my own physical condition. I don't find it to be highly effective in treating neuropathy, but it does still the tingling enough to let me sleep and take my mind off the condition.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 years ago):
Isoptin SR has recently been increased, along with introduction of Nebilet (Bystolic). Had been on Aspirin 300mg, Pravastatin 40mg, and Isoptin SR 120mg x 2 a day, for years and seemed fine. Recent introduction of another 120mg Isoptin and Bystolic 1.5mg seem to have caused havoc (although maybe the hair loss predates this.) Centrax is very occasional, possibly 10mg x 2 or 3 a week.
