Has Anyone Found Lyrica (Pregabalin) to Cause Hearing Loss Leading to Tinnitus?

      Tinnitus Since:
      I've been thinking back before the time I was diagnosed with mild hearing loss. They say it could be age related, but I am "only" 48. I remember taking 75 mg a day of Lyrica. I've read the official side effects, but I cannot find hearing loss as one of them.

      However, it seems like there is a lot of antidotal evidence that this might be a side effect:

      Anyone taking Lyrica and think it may be the cause of your hearing loss?

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Probably sound, though never proven
      I tried it but the escalating suicidal ideation put me off continuing before I noticed any hearing loss.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Head/Neck injury + acoustic trauma
      I've been on Lyrica/Pregabalin for the past two months 300mg a day. No hearing loss detected yet. I'm just going through a bad T spike and was wondering if Lyrica could be the cause of it?
