Yet another new symptom since starting the Zith/Rifampin combo. Waves of dizziness even when I'm sitting down. And when I close my eyes, I feel like the room is moving. Anyone else have this? Does anything help?

And could this be a symptom of Cymbalta withdrawal?

I had this as a regular symptom before abx. The Rifampin did make me much dizzier on the first dose. Even for a few months on the full dose, I would have increased dizziness about an hour after the dose.

My upper body and head would actually sway. It is nearly gone now and I am stopping the Rifampin any day now.

Are you taking it at night/evening? Does the dizziness subside before the next dose?

I have wondered if some if my persistant "dizziness/dysequalibrium" is a side effect of Rifampin.

Even Zith lists dizziness as a side.

And yes, withdrawel from Cymbalta could also be causing it. Are you discontinuing the Cymbalta slowly? I realize it is a capsule, but some have opened the capsules and split the doses to wean off even slower.

(I did see your e-mail. I will write when I get my e-mail straightened out.)
