- 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.
- Hydroxyurea and pomegranate juice
sorry for my bad english.
i am a retired physician, specialist in i.medicine & gastroenterology.
have essencial thrombocythemia since year 2000.
mild hypercholesterolemia once treated wiht symvastatin 20 mg/day.
during a certain time i began to take 100 cc of pomegranate juice/3 times per week. before that my platelets were +/- stable at 400-450.000 y also my cholesterol at normal.
after a few weeks of drinking pomegranate juice suddenly found: platelets fell to 300.000 and there was a leucopenia with absolute leucocytes count 1.7.
also the cholesterol ldl and total fell to levels that never had before. at this stage stoped pomegranate juice and stoped hydrea and after more or les normalization began again hydrea when al the blood values return to a normal or higher level.
I think that there is, probably, an interaction between hyderea and also smvastatin with pomegranate juice.
for an unrelated cause i stoped symvastatin a few months ago. no i have a problem again with platelets that are high (480.000) and leucopenia (perhaps myelofibrosis ?). since a week we lowered de hydrea and i again began taking 100 cc of pomegranate juice twice a week. i have an appointment to my hematologist in 4 weeks and will do blood tests.

- 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.
- Ringing in ear after kenalog injection
After receiving a Kenalog injection, my son's left ear started a low pitch ringing after three days from the injection. Also his lower lip has quivered several times as well. This condition has lasted for nine days and I am looking for other patients who have had a similar reaction from a Kenalog injection.
