Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 days ago):
hypertension difficult to control; toprol augmented with losartan then nifedipine added 1 month ago. BP is down, but tinnitus comes and goes, mostly in left ear.
From this study (5 days ago):
I suspect the ringing in the ears is primarily due to taking Effexor (now generic) because it substantially increases if I miss a dose. I take 70 mg. daily
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I had a radiation treatment 2 summers ago to stop the function of my thyroid due to Grave's dis ease (HYPERTHYROIDISM). I went from brand name synthroidown to a generic version they was switched by my doctor to Tirosint in June 2014. I noticed mild dizziness only occasionally until about a month ago (Sept 2014). I woke up around 3 am with sever verigorous and extreme nausea. The emergency room doc said I had disengaged ear crystals and gave me some Internet printouts of the Dix Hall Pyke and Eply maneuvers to diagnose and to help move them to a place in my ear where they would no longer cause harm. It was suggested to go to an ENT if the symptoms didn't go away. I was prescribed Meclizine and Lorzepam. They monitored me after taking Meclizine and although it didn't take away the dizziness I wasn't as nauseous. Instead of waiting I went right to an ENt in front of the hospital. Hthat doctor also told me about the crystals and scheduled me with another ENT for a hearing and other test. That doc confirmed BPPV (positional vertigo). I made another appt with the first ENT doc bease I believed the positional vertigo wasn't a correct diagnosis. I asked again if he would please check my thyroid blood work to see if maybe I was having a problem with Tirosint which is the only relatively new drug I had changed in my life. He agred and also signed me up for an MRI tof rule out a brain tumor just in case. I got a call from his office soon after to come in to discuss my blood test results. I asked them to send them to my endo. My endo doc called me that night. HE told me to immediately stop taking the Tirosint and that my hyperthyroid is had returned. I went from 100 mcg of synthroid to 88 mcg on Tirosint. HE said let's get the drug out of your system for 2 weeks and we will check your blood again. I go on Oct 18 for the blood work. The following Monday after the MRI the expedited the results to the ENT and I went to see him for the results. HE showed me my T3 and T4 results and also revease I now had a brain cyst or tumor in my right temporal lobe. HE said I'm also diagnosing you with Menieres which is most likely due to the return of your hyperthyroidsim. HE said "I'm interested to know if the Meniere's will stop after your endo gets your thyroid back under control." He asked for me to return to him in a year and said that I should follow up with a neurologist in 6 months. The ringing is now in both ears. The vertigo is always with me. I feel unbalanced. I have diarrhea all the time, headaches, blurred vision. I know it's the Tirosint! Is there anyone else on here that develope brain cysts or tumors as a result of Tirosint? They said that can't rule out a low grade glioma. I'm a single mom of 3 children ages 11, 14, and 15. I'm a science teacher and have only taught about 5 years. This is ruining my life!
