Question: tingling tongue

 susieQ1 - Fri Oct 12, 2007 7:28 am

I am 64 F with multiple allergies, migraines, seizures, Meniere's & auto immune problems. My problems is the two meds I need for Meniere's is Antivert or Ativan. Antivert causes my legs to burn & jerk/twitch. I was given Ativan for my Meniere's. I only took 1/2 of .05 tab which is almost nothing. I feel like my tongue is tingling, no other problem. Is this something I should be concerned about or is this normal? Thanks.

User avatar Hi SusieQ1,

When someone describes tongue tingling from a medicine it makes me a little bit nervous. It may be something else but there is a possibility of an allergic reaction.

I would recommend that you talk with your doctor to explain your symptoms to better evaluate for the possibility of an allergic reaction before taking any more.

Best wishes.
