      Any thoughts on taking Prozac?

      Will it make tinnitus worse?

      I'm depressed because I have tinnitus so I don't want to make it louder.

      Thanks!

      @jeannie . Hi. I have tried Prozac it didn't effect my tinnitus. But I could not get on well with this antidepressant it made me feel like a zombie. So the doctor prescribed me with Amitriptyline which I'm happy to be on now. Antidepressants don't suite everyone having said that you might be fine on Prozac.

      @jeannie 50 mg a day. Amitriptyline is not just a depressant it's also Drug for nerve pain it's also used widely by doctors to help tinnitus it certainly brings my tinnitus down so l can get to sleep more easily.
