      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Loud music / Zoloft
      My tinnitus was caused by an SSRI (Zoloft). My ENT said any antidepressants could make it worse.

      I also have ADHD and was told that most of those meds can make it worse too. Is there anything I can take that won't make my tinnitus worse?

      I take Focalin and have had no issues with it. I would steer clear of Wellbutrin, as that's mainly an antidepressant. Essentially, ADD prescription of Wellbutrin is kinda off label.

      ADHD here - I take Concerta (extended release Ritalin) and find it has no impact on my tinnitus!

      Has anyone here had a spike AFTER you STOP taking Elvanse (Lisdexamfetamine), which is an ADHD medication? I was on it daily for about 6 weeks, 20-30 mg.
