- Cause of speech problems
Since starting on Lansoprazole, 18 months ago, my wife has acquired/developed a speech impairment which manifests itself as an inability to enunciate her chosen word i.e. she knows what word she wants to say but is unable to say it, e.g. she will say soos instead of shoes, pan instead of plan, and she struggles with multi syllable words.
She has convinced herself that it is the onset of dementia, but I have not observed any cognitive deficits - her memory is excellent, she is not confused by anything; furthermore, our doctor is similarly unconvinced of her self diagnosis.
Nevertheless, her problem is causing her very considerable anxiety.

- 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.
- Stay away from lisinopril
I move slowly and talk much slower than I used to. A friend of mine helped me find this site. I was taking 40mg of lisinopril for years when all of a sudden I had painful swelling in hands & feet which finally moved to my face. At that point I got scared and went to the E(mergency) R(oom) after I saw my doctor that morning - who gave me medicine to take to make it stop.
I don't remember when it first started, me moving slow and talking slow. But oh well, I have more important things to stress about.
- Can crestor cause vertigo? (2 responses)
I started taking Crestor in May of 2011. I had my first big "episode" in June.
Severe vertigo, loss of balance, slurred speech, fatigue, loss for words, tingling, numbness, pressure in back of head...
Didn't have all at once, but went to hospital via ambulance twice. Was first given 1000 mg of keppra for seizures -- way too much-- I'm only 4'10/95 lbs.
Went back to neuro. Took me off keppra. Started testing for MS.
Had 2 spinal taps and 3 or 4 MRIs. Had another severe attack and was hospitalized with diagnosis of TIA.
First thought I needed a stent in P1 segment of artery . Went to stent specialist. Didn't need it at all.
Was on antibiotics for Lyme for about five or six months.
The neuro said I was " an enigma wrapped in a riddle."
Found different neuro!
Meanwhile, a friend said that statins could cause these same symptoms.
I took myself off Crestor. After about three weeks, my symptoms dissipated.
I still have fatigue( blood tests are normal) but I have had only two very, very tiny spells of vertigo. My speech has not been slurry.
So far, so good. I haven't driven in months, since the vertigo would come on suddenly. Couldn't risk hurting someone myself! Yesterday, I drive a couple miles to the post office!
Continuing with my experiment of being off the Crestor until my next visit to the neurologist.
I was a school principal and took early retirement because of the severe effects. If I retired early because of Crestor... goodness gracious...
I was debilitated at work. I'd be fine ones ire and the next, I'd be holding onto the desk, ad the room was spinning-- or my secretaries would have to hold me as I hobbled into the nurse's office-- or I would hold onto the wall as I walked down the hallway.
Couldn't run a school like that. I wish I stopped taking Crestor 2 years ago!!!!
Oh... and the pharmacist and neurologist said they don't connect Crestor to the severe vertigo because it wasn't on the list of side effects!

Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Dizziness and visual impairment as well as slurred speech tend to accompany my migraines. These are more noticeable while on maxalt, but this may be due to the maxalt significantly reducing the migraine pain, making the other symptoms more noticed.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
etizolam and levosulpride drug used for ge reflux for 3 months,
drug induced parkinsonism observed.Lost muscle tone. Doubtful whether parkinsonism observed is idiopathic or drug induced. If drug induced how far it is curable?
From this study (1 month ago):
I had taken Lisinopril for 1 year at 10mg and stopped taking the medication for
about 2 months and when I went back to the doctor he prescribed a dosage of 20mg.
I took the drug for about (Sept 1 2014) 6 days before my speech was so slurred I could barely speak. I quit taking the drug, but my speech had not improved and
it is now Dec 27, 2014. My swallowing problems was very bad and I kept choking.
Very scary. I had a MRI and they found nothing that concerned the doctors. My swallowing had improved a little bit since I started taking colloidal minerals. It seemed to help my choking within a day. My symptoms didn't start until I took the 20mg lisinopril and within days I had to stop. I can't get a doctor to listen to me. They discount the drug completely.
