My mother is 85 years old. She takes medications for Back Pain (Lyrica), Low Blood Pressure (Medodrine), Cholesterol (Crestor), Diabetes (Januvia), Memory supplement (Aricept), thyroid (Levothryoxine), and an anti-depressant as a sleeping aid (Mirtazapine). She has developed throbbing in her ears in the couple months, and her primary care physician has prescribed Nasonex Nasal spray to see if it would help lessen the throbbing. I can t really get an answer from her if she notices any relief (she is having some memory issues and sometimes get flustered Is there something else that we could ask her PCP that might work. Thanks, Mark
