      Neomycin otic suspension
      I've had tinnitus for 3 years now caused by a prescribed otic suspension of Neomycin with Polymixin B Sulfates and Hydrocortisone. An ENT prescribed it to me when I was having an episode of vertigo which he tried to fix in his office by a motion maneuver but actually made it worse and made me screen bloody murder. I have just recently gone to another ENT for relief of my tinnitus because although it's been annoying it has only recently become more than annoying. To find out that I have to live with this is heart breaking and depressing. I used to only hear it in quiet times but now I hear it even over conversation. I'm angry and also feeling hopeless.

      Same story here.. I believe Neomycin ear drop induced T is the most terrible type. I feel what you are going through.
      May I ask where you are located?Apparently, neomycin ear drops are too commonly prescribed in NZ and Australia.

      This just happened to me. I had an ear infection & doc prescribed these ear drops. The following morning my ear had "closed" & I had tinnitus. My balance is so bad that I cannot drive my car. Going grocery shopping is very hard. I also have a twitching in my cheek. I'm so scared that this is permanent! I just found out that the oral antibiotic also causes this. ...so I was on two medicines that are octotoxic. How can they deafen me and get away with it?
