Welcome to JustAnswer Health...and thank you for your question. I am a verified Expert and am delighted to help you today. IS she still taking Atenolol?
Was she taking the B Complex when this started?
We were taking a multivitaman and Calcium Citrate, Chromium Picolinate, Selenium, A 500 mg Cranberry Capsule and Omega 3,6,9 multi-oil capsule
They have her on Lisnopriol
This is an ace type medication
How long ago was the atenolol stopped?
Jan 28th, 2011 , they put her on Bystolic until Feb. then the lisnopriol
Sorry they changed her from 5 mg to 10 mg in Feb. and Lisnopriol in late March.
She was on the Atenolol since 1989, started at 5 mg and was raised to 50 mg over the past years
so all beta blockers were stopped in February. It would seem that the increase in atenolol/Chlor was the starting factor. Do you know if she has had a sensitivity to Sulfa drugs in the past? ( Bactrim, for example)
She had scarlet fever as a child
Tinnitus can come on suddenly due to toxicity of some substances as well as sensitivities... it can also happen due to problems in the ear with wax build up as well as congestion and it can occur without any known reason.
In most cases tinnitus is caused by benign conditions that are neither "dangerous" or "deadly".This is fairly common and actually one out of five people experience it. Tinnitus is a hearing disorder caused by a dysfunction of your auditory nerve. Treatment includes turning on music or other sounds to distract you from the ringing in your ear. For many people Tinnitus comes and goes without any apparent cause. Here is a link to read more: http://www.aafp.org/afp/2004/0101/p127.html I hope this information helps you.
