      Tinnitus Since:
      2012
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Acoustic trauma
      I’ve been dealing with a spike for 7 months after 10 years of habitation. It came back during a panic attack. Since my already awful anxiety has gotten so much worse, I was prescribed Buspar to help as my psychiatrist was worried an SSRI would worsen it. I take 10 mg 2x a day. I’m also on Mirtazapine 30 mg and Gabapentin 300 mg 2x a day.

      I started the Buspar Thursday and didn’t notice anything but some dizziness. Yesterday though was bad tinnitus wise and today hasn’t been much better. I want to stick it out because it’s the only non benzo that’s ever showed any sign of helping my anxiety but I’m worried it’ll make my tinnitus even worse. I kinda think it is just a coincidence or psychosomatic but I’m not really sure.

      How was other people’s experience on Buspar? If a med like this spikes tinnitus, does it usually level back out the longer you take the medication or does it continue getting worse?

      I take pretty much the same.

      400 mg Gabapentin 2 times a day
      15 mg Buspar 2 times a day
      15 mg Mirtazapine

      This combo has actually helped me and reduced my tinnitus a bit.
