Hi All

Are any of you experiencing Tinnitus as a result of taking this drug.

I am taking Acerycal 10/5 which contains amlodpine and have now been inflicted with this horrible debilitating tinnitus. I have been taken off this drug in the past 2 days and have not yet seen any signs of improvement in the tinnitus condition. I am wondering if it takes longer to get a result.

    Sorry Connor but l took Amlodopine for quite a few years and ended up with tinnitus too.

    Am off Amlodopine now since last November but still suffer same noises/ringing although most times it doesn't bother me too much. You could be lucky and it could get quieter as time goes on. Do hope so. Best of luck.

      Am now taking Losarten plus a betta blocker for fast heart rate. This l am convinced started with the Amlodopine. Struggling to get off the Bisoprolol now as it brings too many side effects. The Losarten is not too bad although when the Dr upped the dose l got lots of horrible side effects. Went back to original dose and so far so good.
