Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Does anyone have persistent, ringing tinnitus while taking this drug?
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????
- What can i take for a headache when i am on lexapro (1 answer)
lexapro started only a week ago, feel tightness in jaw and headache, sleeplessness, not sure if lexapro is good for me if i cannot ever take an aspirin or tylenol for sleep.

I need to keep the INR level to 2.5 and don't want to change that regimin
- Since starting coumadin i am exhausted all the time and have muscle and joint pain. (2 answers)
In 2012 I had two PE's and four DVT's; I was diagnosed with a clotting disorder; after several hospitalizations they put an IVC filter in. Within a few months I was diagnosed with RA, Rheumatoid Arthritis. I am chronically exhausted, I have muscle pain - sometimes the pain in my upper legs/thighs is so severe I have lift my leg with my hands to get it into the car. Overtime I lost my livelihood and have become very depressed. Doctors say these symtoms are not related to any of the drugs I am taking.

- Sodium phosphate sensitivity - chlortrimaton helps
When I eat meat or any product with Sodium Phosphate in it, either in one large dose or cumulatively I get all of these symptoms. It gets worse if I eat it in consecutive meals and/or days. Taking Chlortrimaton eases the symptoms. The Doctor says this is not an allergy but is a sensitivity to Sodium Phosphate. There are other meat tenderizers and preservatives that have one or more of the symptoms listed but I have not been able to identify them.
- The effect of magnesium citrate on coumadin
the combination of coumadin and magnesium citrate guarantees too low INR
- Ringing in the ears from linzess
I started Linzess about a month ago, taking it about every three days. It was my miracle pill, until recently when I started having ringing in my ears. I am stopping the medication in hopes that the ringing will subside.
- Side effects of using terazosin
I have been on terazosin for 9 days. The ringing in my ears is unbearable, dizzy in the night if I wake up to use the bathroom, intermittent throbbing heartbeat. Also very significant is dramatic decrease in libido and difficulty achieving satisfaction. Dose started at 5 mg at night, reduced to 2 mg. at night after two days and ringing does not go away. I have permission from my doctor to discontinue use and replace with Lisinopril.
- Still ill after several years (1 response)
I became ill several years ago.
It all started with a head cold that lasted a few months and left me with Tinnitus and chronic sinusitis.
After a nose operation and many visits to the doc and hospital, I am no closer to felling better or being cured.
My doc gave me Beconase Aq at first and this made me very unwell, causing me fatigue which would last for a few days. I'm still searching for help.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 year 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.
From this study (3 years ago):
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.
