      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Loud noise

      Over the years I have tried several SSRIs and only one of them did not effect my tinnitus which was Paroxetine, I was only taking 10mg though and did not notice any effect on my mood with them.

      I recently started to take them again, this time at 20mg, the dose which was what I was supposed to take at in the first place.

      But this time I noticed that as with some other SSRIs that a high pitched hiss would start and continue all of the time, I know that from experience that this is not permanent and has subsided a couple of weeks after discontinuation but I was wondering if I should persevere with the SSRI in hopes that the tinnitus will settle down after a few weeks of taking the SSRI.

      I suffer very badly with OCD and that is the reason I am taking Paroxetine.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Be careful with Paroxetine - One of the worst addictive SSRI around because of its withdrawal effects. Just Google Paxil Guinea pigs GSK....
