Okay, never thought this would happen to me, but I'm hearing things. It sounds like a TV or radio has been left on. Many nights I have wondered through our home and checked the TV, and see if music was coming from somewhere. Nothing has ever never has been on. About two weeks ago I had the meds in my pain pump increased. I have Prialt in my pump, and I also take Xanxax , .25mg two times daily, and Oxy, 10mg, 3x daily. I have been on the Oxy and Xanax for a while, so I know this has to be related to the pain pump increase. I talked with my doctor, and he lowered the Prialt back down earlier today. I'm still hearing things, but it takes a little over two days for the new meds (he added morphine) to work there way through the pump. Oh, and when I told the nurse what was going on she said another patient who is on Prialit like I am had said earlier in the week they were hearing things as well, but she couldn't give any details about what they heard. The doctor had no real reaction to the side effects. I also had side effects: headaches-mostly in the sinuses, hot flashes, night sweats, and trouble sleeping. The trouble sleeping is because of the other side effects.
So, has anyone else heard things when they are on the medication? How'd you get it stop? Advice please, I'm getting desperate.
