Comments from related studies:
From this study (6 months ago):
Items in section 3 are currently under evaluation. Most began to emerge, subtly, approximately 11 years ago and have intensified over the past 2-3 years. Myelomalacia involving a 9.5-cm segment of the posterior column of the spinal cord was demonstrated on MRI 2 weeks ago.
From this study (2 years ago):
Don't know if the two are related, but I have developed severe Tinnitus over the last 2 years, and it appears to be worsening. I was told that Melatonin could be one solution to my problem. I will be on Warfarin for the rest of my life.

Dave on May, 27, 2012:
A few days ago, I got ringing in my right ear, but it hasn't gone away for 4 days now! I have been on warfarin since a DVT was found in my leg end of January (about 4 months ago.)
I googled "warfarin ear" and found this page. My concern is growing!
My ringing was not induced by any noise exposure at all so it leads me to believe the warfarin is a strong suspect.

Lisinopril 25mg provokes horrific depression, despair, inability to navigate back to upbeat, creative state and fear for survival. Dizziness, crippling vertigo, etc every time I move from rest. Reducing dose to 2.5mg makes side effects tolerable, with no noticeable change in therapeutic effect.
