Hey all. So about 8 weeks ago my tinnitus went from barely audible to life-altering. Most likely because I was told at that point I have tinnitus. Just being told probably spiked my anxiety, and so the tinnitus. At least, thats my theory. Ever since ive first been on these meds: - Parexotine: result even louder tinnitus, panic attacks, suicidal thoughts. Was seemed side effect on parexotine, discontinued after 3 days. - switched to Alprazolam (xanax) 0,25mg pills, max 2 pills a day, usually no more than 1. This helped my anxiety a lot. t keeps rising slowly. - at the same time as Alprazolam, also started Lormetazepam to sleep. At first 2mg, but that put me in a coma Switched to 1mg, seems just about right. Tried 0.5mg, didnt work as wel. - yesterday my dr (in this case psychiatrist, who is currently my primary dr due to the panic attacks that i havent had since) switched me to Clonazepam for sleeping, since he wants me off the Lormetazepam. I get this, it's highly addictive. I think i slept bad, I felt awake continuously, but my wife is certain I slept a lot. This morning T is highest it's ever been. I didnt take any Alprazolam as he wants me off that as well as he thinks im not depressed. Good thing is, this dr also has tinnitus, and gets it. But I think he's a bit premature in removing me from xanax, as I feel emotionally a wreck this morning. Im starting to think all these drugs are doing more bad than good. They're putting me on a roller coaster of emotions and tinnitus. What do you all think about all these benzos, and drugs in general?
