Moxifloxacin hearing loss - severe
I was prescribed Moxifloxacin by a dentist in Houston. I am a 33 year old caucasian female, with the rare red hair, blue eye gene (I only mention this bc redheads are affected differently by some medicines and anesthesias).
I immediately noticed loud ringing in my ears after my first or second dose (10 400mg tablets, taking once a day for ten days). I also experienced extreme lightheadedness, and nearly fainted on several occasions during my dosage. Other minor but strange side effects were a strong saline taste in my mouth immediately after consuming fluids. This side effect has only just recently begun to dissipate.
My last dose was 4/18/2014. I am still experiencing the extreme ringing in both ears as of 6/4/2014. The ringing is so loud and constant, that it is unbearable. My hearing has been hindered to maybe half. I'm truly scared.
If you could please offer any answers or solutions, please contact me.
