Amlodipine induced tinnitus !

Posted , 3 users are following.

i had tinnitus on day one, after taking Amlodipine . I have now taken myself off the medication, and I still have the tinnitus, almost three weeks later ! Has anyone else experienced a similar problem with this medication? If so, how long did the tinnitus carry on for, after discontinuing the treatment? Hopefully, it is only temporary, but I am becoming a little concerned !

    I doubt it will last, just drink alot of water and flush your system, use ginko biloba, only T i know that stays is the one from noise induced, which is what i got, relax! You will be ok, see your ENT if you got one, make sure is a good one, most are not!

      Hi Ray

      Thank you for your advice and positivity. I will try drinking lots of water - which is a good thing to do anyway, so I am hopeful it will help. So sorry to hear your tinnitus is noise induced and, being so is,probably far more of a problems. Take care, and I really hope you recover quickly.

    Sorry to hear this.

    Sad to say you will probably have this the rest of your days.

    I got mine back in 1987 and still have it.

    The sooner you just suck it up and understand that there is nothing that can be done now the sooner you can move on.

    You do not get a handicap sticker and no one can see it.

    It was a side effect that was listed on the warning and there it is. Hope the anti biodict worked for you.

    Sorry but your in the club now.

      Thank you for the post Glenn. You seem to have a positive and matter of fact approach to your tinnitus, which I am sure is the way forward ! It isn't much good dwelling on things that you cannot change ! I do feel annoyed about medication side affects - I thought they went away once you stopped taking them - but it doesn't seem to be the case here ! Take care, and I really hope you will wake one morning, tinnitus free !
