      Tinnitus Since:
      06/2015 benzo taper
      my tinnitus started at the beginning of my taper on 6/2015. It gets louder as I taper. I hope it will decrease if I taper slower and when I am finished with my taper. Has anyone's tinnitus decreased after their taper?
    2. I've read many accounts of it decreasing and going away..but it takes a long time..Hang in there, and yes slooooooow taper.

      Ear infection
      Can't say really. If you taper off, use campral or ask your doctor about. Good luck!
