      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Wish I knew, possibly nosie damage.
      Has anyone ever heard of such a thing? Sadly I saw one post claiming that because valerian root works in a similar manner to benzos that it could also worsen T through withdrawal symptoms. Now I'm sure this person had little idea of what they were talking about but I'm curious if anyone has ever heard of something like this?

      Tinnitus Since:
      I don't know whether this could be termed "ototoxic", but I've heard of two instances where "natural" products initiated severe hyperacusis and/or tinnitus. Unfortunately, I cannot remember the product names.

      One was a natural product that helps dissolve scar tissue and break down fibroids. The other, I believe, was intended to open Eustachian tubes.

      There are some powerful "natural" substances out there. Also, you never know what might happen if you combine things.
