    Tinnitus Since:
    3/2010
    Cause of Tinnitus:
    Noise exposure, drug combo?
    My tinnitus began in 2010, I really just woke up with it one day, had been on zoloft for many years and took chantix to quit smoking, my tinnitus began under the combination of those two medications. I was in the marine infantry for 4 years 94 thru 98 which lead to some significant hearing loss and likely predisposed me to the the tinnitus, but I never really had any major tinnitus until 2010. I believe the medication combination triggered the tinnitus that I was already predisposed to from my hearing loss. It did drive my crazy from 2010, but I was able to cope with it fairly well until Jan 2014 when for some reason it got much worse. Thats when I really started looking for help and I discovered this wonderful site.
