CJ on Aug, 29, 2014:
I have been taking Evista for approximately 2 years without and side effects and about 2 months ago was switched over to the generic for Evista and since then I have had constant ringing in the ears. I have also noticed burning when urinating and infrequency in urination and vaginal dryness. My physician has ordered the original Evista and hopefully when I receive it and start it again the ringing in my ears will finally go away along with all of the other unpleasant symptoms. This has been a terrible experience! (I am a 62 year old female.)
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I had initial assessment for hearing loss. tinnitus came on after a ear and nose infection. Went after taking antibiotics on two occasions but returned after coming off antibiotics. Still awaiting referral to ENT. Noise reduced after coming off simivastatin but acceptable. Had to go back on statins as a result of increased level of cholesterol.
From this study (1 month ago):
I was just wondering if taking gleevec for 3 years would cause hearing loss (ringing in the ear)
