hello everyone, i have tinitus since four month ago. I started with this sintomatic after using omeprazole in convination with clonazepan. after i've been read this article ,i suspended omeprazole and day by day the tinitus frequency is less. i want to leave my experience to help to people who have tinitus and who use this convination of drugs.
It's important to know that the recuperation process is very slow and it's necesary keep calm.

I've been taking omeprazole for almost 2 years and you're not going to believe this... I too had an fainting attack. Thought it might be MS, or brain tumor, but everything (MRI Scan, Heart Tests) came back clear.

I've also got an itchy foot.
