From this study (5 hours ago):
I take a 325 mg aspiran every dayy
From this study (1 day ago):
started taking this drug in Dec 2011 for weight loss for 24 days and during that time developed pulsatile tinnitus which has continued 24/7 for the last 27 months - have seen ENTs, neurologists, gp, chiropractor, acupuncturist to try to cure the condition. I've had MRIs and MRAs of the head and brain, carotid artery as well as a lumbar puncture to see if it might be a build up on spinal fluid - all tests came back with good results. Is phentermine hydrochloride the cause of my pulsatile tinnitus? is there a medication that can reverse the symtoms?
From this study (7 days ago):
I took 50mg Arthrotec for 4.5 months and only took three per day and only three days a week. I first noticed my vision was getting blurred plus I had a ringing in my left ear and the right ear sometime would go into a hollow state whereby it sounded like I was breathing through my ear. Also my groin area got totally inflamed and took three months to clear up after I stopped taking Arthrotec. The drug was very effective for my hip pain but now that I have had my hip replaced and doing well I am stuck with this DAM tinnitus in my ear for the rest of my life. In hind sight I will never take another drug for any condition that can be corrected by surgery or otherwise. The risk for side affects is too great!
