- Roaring in the ears from tramadol (taken with dexamethasone)
It seems the roaring in my right ear happens more around taking the tramadol (2-3/day). Of course, I have a (5) day regiment of dexamethasone at (2/day) so maybe there's a connection. This was prescribed by my GP ( highly regarded) for severe lower back bulging disc pain and down left leg. Also prescribed tizanidine for muscle spasms and gabapentin for, maybe nerve swelling? Both at 2/day but I take less of these two.
Back pain much better but have the roaring in right ear and can't sleep much. Also doing the Dr recommended exercises daily. Will follow up with chiropractic if this doesn't get me there.
This is a chronic condition, maybe 20 years, no specific injury, just an accumulation of doing dumb things in my youth.
- Neurotin as an anabolic
Takave been taking anabolic steroids for about 6 weeks my games were linear unlock the entire time. When I started taking Neurontin with anabolic steroids my anabolism was increased by at least 30%. There was no change in diet or any other variables as far as I can tell. The only variable was the neurontin.it just so happens did my workout partner is taking Neurontin and getting the some effect. I know for a fact it affects the digestive system.
- Blood sugar level while taking veltrex
I been taking Veltrex for a viral infection in my eye for 3 days and today my blood sugar was 448.My normal blood sugar runs around 146.
- Nuvigil & prilosec caused horrible experience
Both the pharmacy and doctor didn't have this interaction in their system after 4 ER trips I finally looked this interaction up. The problems didn't appear for 3 weeks after I started taking Nuvigil. So I didn't connect the two...it was a horrible experience.
- Lamotrigine severe rash
I started taking 100mg of Teva-Lamotrigine Nov 22 once daily. I got a refill on Dec 5 that was Mylan-Lamotrigine. Two days later I woke up with an odd hot feeling rash all over my body and severe fatigue. I went back to bed 1/2 hour later after taking my regular Wellbutrin and the Lamotrigine. I woke up late morning. It got progressively worse during the day and I had a headache,fever and chills. I took the anti-histimine Aerius later that day which didn't help. The next day I went to a walk in clinic and they said it wasn't the Lamotrigine and thought it was a virus and did a throat swab. The fever and chills went away after a few days but I still have the rash. Finally after a week I saw a doctor that agreed it was the drug and I am now on the second week of Prednisone steroid treatment and prescription Reactin which is helping slowly. I have reported it to the Mylan drug company.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 days ago):
Dizziness, ringing in ears
From this study (2 months ago):
Hands have myoclonic jerks. Then I noticed that my shoulders and fingers were twitching/jerking . Anytime I hold something or try to type, for example, the myoclonus jerks gets really bad. This morning it's bad. Up to this point, it has taken me almost an hour to type this.
From this study (4 months ago):
I have been in pain and have suffered for over 7 years with muscle pain with cramping, aching, burning, stinging, pins/needles, weakness, numbness and paralysis, etc. I live with fatigue and utter exhaustion everyday and hate having to take medicine period, but have no choice in the matter. I know that this is something serious..I can feel it. I just have to get the Doctors, to find it...and fix whatever it is that is wrong.
I am trying to find what is the root cause of it all, then I might be able to find some relief.."Lord Willing". I have always been a driven individual and love life. I am a fighter and a survivor, so I will continue forward..until I find a way to the answer.
The pain level stays around 5 or 6 everyday and can be overwhelming at times, but I pray and I find relief for a moment..from The Lord. Grateful to be alive. Just want life to be normal again and to be able, to spend my time with my family that I have missed so much of.
