Hello! I'm in the middle of a crisis here and was hoping to find some support. I have had mild tinnitus for 3 years, however, three months ago, I went through a tough time at work and started suffering from sleep deprivation. After looking up information on this website I started taking Remeron (Mirtazapine) for sleep. After one week of taking 15mg every night, I started noticing this electric buzz in my head. At first I didn't attribute it to Remeron, but soon after, the electric buzz increased and more incredibly weird (and extremely loud!) noises were added. This time I knew for sure that it was due to the Remeron, despite the fact that it's not known to be an ototoxic drug (although it *is* mentioned on the 2013 ata.org list)! So now I'm stuck and very, very desperate. My ''gentle'' hissing turned into an electric storm and it's not fun. I can no longer get ANY natural sleep and have to take Lorazepam to knock me out, which in turn makes my ringing worse. So what on earth do I do? I'm living in hell and am not sure how to get out. I think this might be a clear case of excitotoxicity. My gosh... is there any hope? ANY meds I can take to reverse this or block the effects? Any advice would be much appreciated! Thank you!!
