  • From this study (1 week 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?

    Reply

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • after taking phentermine hydrochloride 37.5 mg tablets for less than one month, pulsatile tinnitus started and has continued for 26 months - would this drug have caused this as I have done every test including a lumbar puncture and have seen ENTs, dentists and neurologists. I am desperate to find if this drug started the pulsatile tinnitus and if there is any drug to reverse it?
