      I have taken advil since my onset years ago and never had an issue. Even at 600mg doses. If you really can't handle the pain, then don't worry about it...You could also try ice/heat packs.

      @sandra72 . Hi ibuprofen is a painkiller and is a anti inflammatory drug .it is a drug that I wouldn't personally take as it's been known to cause and make tinnitus worse .

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Meniere's Disease
      Antibiotics and Prednisalone would help and maybe a salbutamol inhaler to help open up your lungs.
      I would still take the meds if you really need them short term and hope you start to feel better soon...lots of love glynis
