      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      So I started taking Zyban (bupropion) to quit smoking, one week later I started hearing ringing in my ears and immediately stopped.
      3 years later and I still have Tinnitus :eek:.

      Doctor said there is nothing could be done so I learned to live with it.

      I wonder what may happen if I try taking Zyban again for short period could tinnitus go away ? Or can it worsen my condition?? Does it worth the risk ?

      Thanks !

      I've been on 150mg wellbutrin for several years, I never had any issues with it. From what I've read, and I certainly haven't read everything, most people have problems when they up their dose. My T is (apparently) the result of mild hearing loss. I'm still taking it and none of the MD's have said anything about it. It keeps me off smoking and keeps me calm. I wouldn't personally risk it if you're sure your T was caused by it. You might want to have a hearing test if you haven't already. I had no idea I'd lost some of my hearing until they tested. me.
