Minocyline causing dizziness, blurred vison, and terrible sinuses.

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello all,

I am reaching out to, possibly, find a solution that no doctor visit has provided yet. My girlfriend is struggling with dizziness, blurred vision and sometimes just awful pressure on the head. She had sinus surgery a while back, and was prescribed with minocycline. Since taking that she has suffered with a great deal of head issues that are terribly affecting her everyday life. She has tried many different ENTs, and such with no luck. The only answer ever given is "it just takes time". Well, time has past and it shows no signs of going away. As a matter of fact, it appears to be getting stronger as time moves on. If anyone has any tips, or the answer that we are desperately looking for please don't hesitate to reach out. Any help would be appreciated. We have done exercises to fix sinusitis and other head symptoms with no luck. Please, we could use anyone with this experience that has gotten past it with help and tips to move on.

Thank you in advance.

    What makes you so sure it is minocycline at fault and not her fundamental sinus issues?

      Because we have checked into just the fundamental sinus issues. The issues have been displayed after the intaking of minocycline and the side effects are visible, and we cannot find answers. We have now gotten an appointment with a neurologist to see if there's anything they can find.
