      I took Valdoxan two weeks ago and it has really increased my tinnitus pitch and sound, would Prednisone be worth looking into?

      My ears feel full and sensitive so I think there might have been damage done.

      I'm so desperate. I'm on the verge of having a breakdown I think.

      I took first dose of prednisone and tinnitus was getting louder.
      So, I have to quit after 1st dose. The T lowers down within 2 days.

      Yeah I know it temporarily increases mine as well, that's not what I was asking tho, I am trying to figure out if it would help with ototoxicity.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      noise + 3 major increases via (shouting / MRI/ flu+Tylenol)
      I have the same problem I have a new tone from Tylenol. All articles I read so far said to just discontinue the drug if ototoxicity is suspected and that there is no treatment to reverse it. I am now taking n-acetylcysteine vitamin E and and vitamin B12 can't say it's helping. I have some prednisone but I do not want to take it cuz it makes me feel so sick.
