  • Does zoloft cause ringing in the ears, like tinnitus? i've been on it for a month and noticed the ringing in the ears about a week ago, and it's just constant ringing and it's driving me insane. (1 answer)
    (Asked by a 24 year old man who has Ringing In The Ears, and takes Dicyclomine Hydrochloride, Benadryl, Tylenol, Lialda, Azathioprine, Prednisone, Ambien, Zoloft)
    I've been on most of the medications for more than a year and it hasn't been that bad getting used to them. But I've been on Zoloft and ambien for about a month now, and I've been noticing a lot of side effects. The one I just recently noticed and that has been driving me completely insane, is the ringing in the ears. It's been about a week now and I just don't know what to do anymore. If it is the Zoloft then I can finally just stop taking it and make this stop. If anyone has an answer or knows what to do, PLEASE help. I'm at my wits end.
  • I use levothroxine can i develop overactive bladder with continued use? (4 answers)
    (Asked by a 77 year old woman who has Frequent Or Urgent Urination, and takes Levothyroxine Sodium)
    I seeing A new doctor about 5 years ago. The drug I had been using before was from an animal source. New doctor prescribes Levothyroxine and I began taking it as prescribed and gradually the frequency and volume of urine increased until I would get up from sleep in the middle of my sleep cycle to urinate until once I urinated a large volume and returned to bed, the urge was still urgent and I urinated again, same large volume and urgency. When I asked my doctor if I could go back to my original normal thyroid medicine, and he seemed very offended, citing his fourteen years spent in school to become a doctor and he would not change it because of some "2 lines on the internet" My daughter knew about my misery,researched and found a site that stated continued people who use Levothyroxine will cause overactive bladder. I have gone to the site but cannot find a concise statement there. Otherwise, I like this doctor. I was shocked and dumbstruck. I went to a very thorough urologist. e was patient and told me that it worked for most people but he had a few patients that it did not help. He is affiliated with the same practice as my primary care physician. I would like some "official" statement that will convince him that this is true. Otherwise, it will be necessary for me to find another doctor who does believe his/her patient.
