Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- 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 xeralto and an antihistimine cause dizziness, shortness of breath, tiredness, etc.
I also take a blood thinner, xeralto, for a-fib. I have been using a mouthwash of an antihistimine antacid mix for a day and a half.
- Would the tinnitus abate with if i discontinue methotrexate?
I've just begun my 4th year of Methotrexate for Rheumatoid issue, but it also alleviated my psoriasis. I am hesitant to discontinue because the benefits are great. However, the tinnitus is becoming unbearable and almost maddening. I will more likely consider talking to my doctor about changing medications if 1. The tinnitus subsides with the discontinuance of Methotrexate and if 2. Other rheumatoid medication would not have the same issues with tinnitus. Just discovered the possible connection minutes ago and am eager and hopeful. Please help. Thank you. -Celeste
- Does anyone have persistent, ringing tinnitus while taking this drug? (1 answer)
I was prescribed Atenolol years ago for tachycardia. I took it for many years with little to no side effects, aside from tiredness. I began having PVCs and later was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. My doctor put me on 5 mg. Bystolic and the tinnitus started. I took it about 1 year. My BP wasn't ideal, so he upped it to mg. and the ringing worsened. It's much louder. The report says this drug isn't ototoxic, but I never had tinnitus before taking it. Anyone else????
- What can i take for a headache when i am on lexapro (1 answer)
lexapro started only a week ago, feel tightness in jaw and headache, sleeplessness, not sure if lexapro is good for me if i cannot ever take an aspirin or tylenol for sleep.

- 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.
- 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.
- Rocephin and levaquin drug interactions (1 response)
I went to ER of local hospital because I was feeling puny, low energy for a while. I was on no meds, physical active all my life, yoga practiser, no crippling. I am late deafened, can speak clearly. This is a true case of attempted murder. I refused to admit myself after waiting 8 hours - I was refused the ability to leave - I was not sick enough - they only suspected pneumonia. This is a rural local hospital who can't get enough patients. I requested a certain antibiotic if one was needed that I tolerate well. It was a terrifying experience because they ignored everything I requested - especially to leave. I experienced burning pain at IV site, hand became inflamed, lost use of my thumbs, then legs would not support me. Could not brush hair or teeth. No one answered my questions about this crippling - it was a nightmare. I lost 16 pounds, my muscles were hanging off my body. I was released after 7 days, totally crippled with no directive or any explanation for these sudden excruciating pains and crippling. They refused me my records for a long time. No new doctor would discuss these records once I got them - every organ in body was visited with electrical like jolts, pain that no pain killers were effective on. In those records I find I had CHF, respiratory failure after 4 days of treatment. I find that they gave me mega doses(500/600 mg) Prednisone - remember - I was on nothing prior. NSAID's were given - three different ones, over 4,000mg daily. I was also given an injection of Fentanyl - 100 times stronger than morphine AFTER I refused to admit myself. My pain level in admitting was rated mild. I started coding - which, beig HOH, I did not know and was not told - after four days treatment . They ignored my inflamed hand(IV port), my complaints of burning at site, then all over. I was never told what I was given. It was horrifying to experience the pains I did after release. I had all new RX's so I did not know I had been given Levaquin - but I did not know hat Levaquin was anyway. I have marked PTSD because over the period of a couple of years - I find all those physicians and specialist who were purporting to be 'clueless' as to what happened to me - why I was suddenly crippled - they were lying or totally incompetent. I was given many other drugs - sedatives - cancer drugs mostly. I was prescribed a Z-pac upon release - all these inhibit breathing - cause heart failure. These are known dangers - murder indeed. My life is altered to the point I am home bound and can't care for myself or my pets, yard, house, garden. Why is this allowed to happen? $$$/profits for medical care - no accountability. Prednisone at mega lethal doses?? No medical care giver has a problem with this?? Oh, QIO states Levaquin is not a black boxed drug nor would giving mega doses Pred and NSAID's cause any problem.....he either can't read or is a liar. He is paid with Federal funds - they don't even try to cover up - its systemic in medical care. And carried out by our government - to accountability whatsoever.
