      Hello everyone,

      I am wondering if anyone had experienced a reduction in tinnitus after taking Sumatriptan (medicine for migraine)?

      I have developed my tinnitus probably due to stiffness of the neck - I have no hearing loss. I have been doing physiotherapy with some success but recently the physiotherapy induced migraine so I was prescribed Sumatriptan. After taking it my tinnitus lowered in volume the next day quite significantly.

      Has anyone else experienced this?

      This just happened to me today! My tinnitus has been a horrible roar that is exhausting me. No idea what started it, but possibly the constant AC unit running overhead at work. I had a headache that wouldn't quit today and took a migraine pill. After a while I noticed the roaring had almost completely stopped! I've been researching auditory migraines and relations between sumatriptan and tinnitus for about an hour now. Interesting to find someone else who had a similar effect!
