View Full Version : Question re: Sertraline side effects

18-06-09, 18:09

While reading through posts, it occurred to me that this might be a good place to pose this question. Since being on Sertraline (which, by the way, has done wonders for my anxiety problems), I've experienced a noticable ringing in both ears. Mentioned to GP and she suggested that it may just be the onset of hearing loss (I'm in my early 60's). But saw some mention of this symptom in association with medication.

Another thing I read, which I knew nothing about and would appreciate any insight on, is taking ibuprofin with Sertaline might not be such a great idea. I take it fairly regularly to combat inflamation related to a lower back problem.

Thanks in advance for any insight you may be able to offer.

Im on sertaline 100mg daily.

Im also on ibuprofen 400mg 3 times a day for a knee problem.

The only problem i have with this is very bad bloating and constipation. nothing else.
