I had Anterior Cervical Discectomy with Fusion at C5/6-7 on 6/17. Prior to my surgery i was on Tramodol 50 mg at 7 a.m. and 2.5 mg of Perocet at 3:00 pm. At bedtime I took Flexeril 5 mg with my Clonidine 0.1 mg (BP). I had no problems with the Tramodol except that I could not take it with clonidine at night (it caused anxiety). Once the Percocet was added on a regular basis about 6 weeks ago I started getting some ringing in my ears.
Well.. they gave me a script for 10/325 of Percocet for postop. I have been taking only 5 mg, and take it every 5-6 hours. If I take it more than twice in a day my ears ring so loud a high pitch ring (like just before a fourescent bulb burns out).
Anyway, does anyone else have this problem? Should I call and ask for something different? I'm allergic to NSAIDS and Aspirin, so no Ibuprophen, etc. Darvocet makes me horribly nauseous and so does Lortab, so those are out. Yesterday I tried to take just Tyelenol and at 1 a.m. this morning I totally paid for it, and today I have had horrible muscle spasms too.
Any ideas? Thanks!
