 3  Bipolar Disorder-II, rapid-cycling Extreme tinnitus (ringing in the ears) This medication has really helped me stabilize my mood. I have proven to be very hard to medicate and many more common therapies do not work for me. Experimental within the last year or two as a treatment for bipolar disorder, my doctor and I decided to give this a try. Initially I had great results. But every 45-60 days I have had to increase my dose to continue it efficacy. At higher doses it seems to work but as it builds up in my system the tinnitus gets worse until I cannot hear out of my left ear. (It seems to be isolated to my left ear, oddly.) When we lower the dose, the ringing goes away, but so does the efficacy. May be time to try something new. I do think this medication can help others as a mood stabilizer. F 54 9 months

NUEDEXTA  (DEXTROMETHORPHAN HYDROBROMIDE; QUINIDINE SULFATE):  This medication is used to treat a certain mental/mood disorder (pseudobulbar affect). This disorder may occur due to various conditions that affect the brain (such as stroke, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-ALS, multiple sclerosis). This medication may help decrease sudden outbursts of uncontrollable/inappropriate laughing and/or crying. This medication is a combination of 2 ingredients: dextromethorphan and quinidine. Dextromethorphan works in the brain, though it is not known exactly how it helps treat pseudobulbar affect. Quinidine is added to this medication to increase the effect of dextromethorphan.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
