      Tinnitus Since:
      My doctor prescribed Omeprazole, Amoxicillin, and Clarithromycin for my H Pylori bacterial stomach infection, and also for the anxiety she added Mirtazapine (Remeron) I am completely scared and stressed out about the Clarithromycin and Mirtazapine spike my tinnitus temporarily or permanently due to these two ototoxic drugs. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what you would do or let me know if you have any experience with these drugs and your tinnitus reactions. I'm on my second day and it already seems louder but it could be the very high anxiety from my fear.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      What makes you say these drugs are ototoxic? Did you see it on an Internet list of ototoxic drugs somewhere? Many of them list medications that, when you check it out, had tinnitus reported as a symptom in less than 1 percent of the people who used the meds. And usually, if T is sparked by drugs you are taking for a week or two, it goes away after you stop the medication.

      Ototoxcity is real and some people do get tinnitus from medications. But I also think some of these lists, which include hundreds of drugs, do nothing but scare people. You should be fine when your infection is done. Don't deny yourself proper treatment due to unwarranted fears.

      i understand your concern

      just as another option to treat the H Pylori....

      colloidal silver... can be helpful.........and other herbals that a qualified naturopath could talk you through that would be safer if you are that anxious about ototoxicity.

      just a thought.
