I guess this is also an intro, though I may head there next. This thread will only speak out to a subset, maybe small, of members. The frustration of this thing and the idea that I may have to accept permanent ringing, etc., is noxious, but . . . I have been on one psych med or another mainly since 2004 with a few years off while I enjoyed extended manic episodes, lol. My first noticeable problem began with wellbutrin. I was on it twice and during the second period the tinnitus began and worsened over time. I discussed this with the doc and we discontinued it. Most of the problem resolved. Recently a new doctor added Bupro (brand name with its own generic so I never questioned it) to my regimen, knowing I can't take wellbutrin. But I didn't research it till I had disabling side effects: severe headaches daily, migraines, blurry and dry eyes, and moderate tinnitus. I thought it was my eyes. Finally, after 3 months, I began to wonder: what besides new eyeglasses changed? I realized it could be the new drug, looked it up, found less common SE included all of those, plus another name for it is Wellbutrin! I haven't taken it for 10 days and no headaches, no dry eyes, but the tinnitus continues. I looked up the other 2 meds I take, neither included tinnitus. But I did a specific search of the drug plus tinnitus. Sure enough, both can be culprits. It is amazing and frustrating that doctors refuse to acknowledge these issues - or do enough research perhaps - even when they are stated by patients as specific, ongoing, disabling (I feel like I'm going deaf) side effects. All 3 of my meds - only 2 I now take - may have led to this problem. It is somewhat disabling, but people who don't have it, don't understand. Even my fiance gets irritated when I don't hear him properly, as if I am not listening. Well, sorry about the novella. I just found this site today; though I have researched the issue before and found good advice on the Mayo Clinic site. That used to help more but the problem is getting worse, not better. My next step on the forum will be to browse treatments. I'm glad you're all hear!
