I was wondering this yesterday, but are noise induced tinnitus and drug induced tinnitus the same thing. I mean, I know how you acquire the tinnitus are totally different routes, but is the damage they both do the same? What damages do the drugs do to the ear? Is the damage any different from noise induced tinnitus? I'm just wondering 'cause I didn't know if certain treatments were different depending on how you acquired the ringing. Hopefully this wasn't too confusing. Thanks for any answers provided.
