: My husband (65 y.o) has just been diagnosed w/ osteo in his hips and spine. Dr. put him on vioxx; w/in 2 weeks he was going nuts from tinnitus (ringing in his ears). Within two days of stopping the vioxx, it seems to be gone.
: Can anyone shed any light on this???
: Thanks. sjr
: : Hearing distortion in 73 year old, who has hearing aids. went away after discontinuing medication for 2 days hummmm
I KNOW the ringing; THAT went away when I quit. I also found that the stuff did NOT last 24 hrs and I was worse off when it wore off. So I quit (after taking it for months):BAD move. I hurt in places I NEVER hurt before. Took it for bad knees. Now, just that suddenly, bad hips, shoulders, hands, feet, chest bones, aching teeth. I wish to God I'd never swallowed the first tablet.
