Is there anyone else out there whose tinnitus was caused by, or worsened, after taking an ACE inhibitor drug? I had mild tinnitus in my right ear for many years, but it was not bothersome, and I had long since acclimated to it. Then, two years ago, my doctor prescribed an ACE inhibitor drug for blood pressure. Within about 10 days after taking that drug, I developed a loud ringing in my right ear. Following that, I began hearing a heartbeat sound in my right ear, which I now know is pulsatile tinnitus. I am no longer taking blood pressure drugs, but the ringing and pulsating remain. I was wondering if anyone out there has had a similar experience, and if their tinnitus has improved. Are you still taking any blood pressure medicine? Has your tinnitus lessened, or remained the same? I would be interested in hearing your story!
