      Tinnitus Since:
      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?

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Anyone with ADD/ADHD here that takes meds and have any experience of tinnitus?

      I just got described Wellbutrin for my ADHD/mild depression but afraid to take it since I read about that it causes tinnitus.

      Any other ADHD drugs that can cause tinnitus or what are your experiences?

      Acoustic Damage from earphones
      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.

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