Really hoping you can give me some advice please.
My wife was recently prescribed HRT medication and after taking the drug for a short period now has tinnitus. 21 years ago she suffered similarly and was successfully medicated. We think it was the drug Nortriptyline but unfortunately her medical records from that era have not survived. She has today consulted her GP who frankly seemed to have no idea of how to help her. She mentioned that she thought she had been successfully treated with Nortryptoline and she has now been prescribed this. However, we are still concerned as to whether this treatment is appropriate at this stage and do not wish to inadvertently make things worse. She is not severely depressed but is suffering anxiety as a result of prolonged menopausal issues and now tinnitus.
Would really appreciate the thoughts of anyone else, particularly those who have been prescribed Nortryptyline. We feel that after her taking HRT and only attaining a new ailment that we are lurching from one crisis to another and as the GP provided no real reassurance we would love to hear thoughts from others who suffer similarly.
I am absolutely desperate to help my wife so would very much appreciate any help you can provide. Thanks you so much in anticipation of your replies.
