- Roaring in the ears from tramadol (taken with dexamethasone)
It seems the roaring in my right ear happens more around taking the tramadol (2-3/day). Of course, I have a (5) day regiment of dexamethasone at (2/day) so maybe there's a connection. This was prescribed by my GP ( highly regarded) for severe lower back bulging disc pain and down left leg. Also prescribed tizanidine for muscle spasms and gabapentin for, maybe nerve swelling? Both at 2/day but I take less of these two.
Back pain much better but have the roaring in right ear and can't sleep much. Also doing the Dr recommended exercises daily. Will follow up with chiropractic if this doesn't get me there.
This is a chronic condition, maybe 20 years, no specific injury, just an accumulation of doing dumb things in my youth.
- Tramadol and severe rls and restless arms
After back surgery I was prescribed Tramadol for pain. After about a month I developed severe RLS and also restless arms that seemed to make it hard to breath. Like a weight on my chest. I noticed that after taking the Tramadol, only at night for sleep, the restless symptoms got worse for about an hour and then settled down some. Before long there was no settling down. My pain after several months being better in my back I, not liking to take medicine period, decided to stop the Tramadol. To my surprise my RLS came to almost a complete halt. After about a week it was gone completely.
- Mom died of stomach blockage while on tramadol
my mom was taking tramadol for hip pain. she went in the hospital for a hip replacement and died 3 days after the surgery in the hospital from an intestinal blockage
- Using tramadol with anti-depressants
Using Tramadol with Anti-depressants
I was taking Tramadol for pain instead of Endone to cut out the opiates as well as my usual anti-depressant. After about 6 months of feeling dizzy spells and nausea I stumbled across information that these two medications should not be mixed. After all of the extensive tests they did to find out why I had these symptoms, I informed my Doctor of what I had discovered. Much the their embarrassment, they realised I was correct and immediately took me off the tramadol. I just thought I would share this information in case any one else is going through what I did.
- Terrible excessive sweating from hydrochlorothiazide
I guess I fit the profile of who gets excessive sweating from HCTZ. I am a 65 year old female and suffered from excessive sweating for two years. With just very little exertion, I would pour sweat from the top of my head. It would run into my face and all over my hair. My hair would be ringing wet. I had heavy perspiration in the groin area and down my back also. I had to change clothing 2-3 times a day and wash up or shower that many times also. The doctor tried changing my Cymbalta and put me on Wellbutrin instead. It did absolutely no good. I went off the wellbutrin and back onto the Cymbalta. I did some research and saw that HCTZ could cause excessive sweating. Both my doctor and my pharmacist said that they had never heard of that. I went off the HCTZ, and my sweating stopped almost immediately. My doctor and my pharmacist were very surprised. I'm one of those people who frequently have different reactions to drugs than are typical. If you're having excessive perspiration and are on HCTZ, try going off of it. It just may be the culprit!
