      Tinnitus Since:
      Onset: 12/2007 Increase: 04/2014
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      2007: Meds(Antidepressant) 2014: Meds(Antibiotics)
      I've seen metronidazole on a list somewhere. It's used mostly for bacterial infections.

      In my case, I took it twice since I've had T and I had no spike or increase (and my T is due to ototoxic meds so I know I need to be careful with those).

      Amoxicillin is supposedly safe :)

      I prefer penicillin when it's possible to take it...
