  • Does clonazapam cause tinnitus or ringing in the ears?
    Patient fell a year ago and injured her neck and broke a bone in her arm. Has had severe pain in her neck. Getting acupuncture frequently. Recently tried to change medication from Valium to Clonazepam, and developed severe tinnitus. She said she only missed two days of Valium. She also says she has skipped days without taking valium and never had a problem. She says Clonazepam caused the tinnitus. I can't find anything that states a side effect of clonazepam is tinnitus.

  • Can meclizine cause insomnia once and sleepiness the next time
    I took Meclizine one night (as advised by pharmacist; she said it causes drowsiness), after experiencing my first attack of vertigo. It kept me awake almost all night. A couple weeks later, as I was getting ready for a special school event for my daughter, I thought another vertigo attack was coming on. Since the Meclizine didn't make me sleepy the first time but instead had the opposite effect, I thought it would be ok to take it (this was an evening event with a meal). After eating, I began to get very sleepy and my face almost fell in my plate.

  • Lyrica is giving me nightmares
    I have fibromyalgia and a history of being allergic to or very sensitive to medications
    But Lyrica is really causing me some nightmares,sleepless nights, weight gain, headaches. I love that in the beginning I was able to get relief from fibromyalgia . It only made me really dizzy and disoriented on it. Now with theses symptoms I will definitely have to give it up. I can't seem to get any relief from this pain. I am so allergic to meds this is frustrating and miserable that meds make it worse.
  • Melatonin and diarrhrea
    A lifetime of wakefulness during the night, almost never more than 7 hrs sleep and awake 2-4 times a night. Return to sleep easily. Doctors gave sleep aids. Usually somewhat ineffective and sometimes groggy mornings. So I decided to go the more natural route ... melatonin. Worse. It did not work for me. It gave me some if the wateriest and longest lasting diarrhea of my life. The uncontrolled continuous diarrhea was worse than not sleeping at night. Not listed as one of the side affects of Melatonin. More people should be made aware of the dangers of this dehydration.
  • Alevert d-12 long term side effects
    I took Alevert D-12 approximately 4-6 days every week for 5-7 years.
    I know have bad aches pains in my bones, joints and can't sleep well cause I wake up several times a night. I don't have true REM during sleep so I feel tired but can't sleep. When I get off the Alevert for a week i'm able to sleep normally. However I've gotten off for a week's time lately and the aches and pains due to bone/joint inflamation type feeling gets worse. I'm going to try to get off it for extended lenght of time see if the bone/joint aches go away. I'll provide feedback in the near future. I ask the editor of this page to please stay in touch with me via email so I can correspond with continued results and progress. Thank you all for posting and sharing your experiences! This is truelly helpful to everyone.
  • Sublingual b12 & insomnia
    Approx 8 months ago I began taking 500 mg sublingual B12 in the am. I actually feel more energized (real or imagined?) but, I have also begun experiencing severe insomnia. I go to sleep easily but get up around 3 times a night. This interrupted sleep is a killer. Any suggestions will be appreciated
  • Pain meds that cause insomnia
    I currently take 7.5 mg of Vicoprofen for pain for my Anklyosing Spondylitis. I have tried Vicodin and Norco previously, but nothing worked as well as the Vicoprofen. I have never had to up my dosage and I am still getting the same level of relief as I was when I first started it over a year and a half ago. I swear by the Vicoprofen and would recommend it to anyone who has any type of related pain, but, there is one downfall. Every time I take my pain meds I get a huge burst of energy. My pain is usually worst at night, so I have no choice but to take it before bed. More times than not it causes me to suffer extreme insomnia, which is no fun. Up until recently I just suffered through it. I went and saw my primary today and told her about the issues and she suggested I try Trazodone to help ease my mind so I can fall asleep easier and faster. I'm really hoping it works because I don't want to have to switch pain meds because they work so well, but I can't go much longer only getting 2-3 hours of sleep during the week.
    I will wrote another review in a week or so regarding my experience taking the Trazodone with the Vicoprofen.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Immediately after getting the shot in my upper trapezius area for a pinched nerve (C7 radiculathopy) I could taste the medicine in my mouth, and I involuntarily exhaled deeply. I could feel the medicine hit the bottom of my left abdomen wall. Immediately, my lungs and chest felt as if an elephant was sitting on them. I couldn't breathe, and the pain in my abdomen paralyzed me. I finally notified a nurse and they stuck another needle in me and gave me a muscle relaxant, and oxygen. Then the doctor ordered an x-ray on inhale and exhale. I needed assistance to remove my shirt to apply the gown for the x-ray. 30 minutes later I felt okay, but the pain was still there. I couldn't sleep at all that night, my heart was racing. The next day, my face and chest looked as it I had 3rd degree burns they were so red. 2 days later, I finally feel better.
