Ok, I’ve been asked this a million times…. “Are There Drugs That Help Tinnitus?” Based on my experience there are no drugs that help tinnitus. That doesn’t mean there aren’t any because everyone is different and what may work for one person may not work for another.But, consider this. Drugs caused my tinnitus! I had a virus and I took an over-the-counter medication to alleviate the symptoms. And voila! Next morning I woke up with a jet engine in my head and it’s been there for the last 6 years.
My advice! Avoid over-the-counter medication at all costs. In fact, the warning leaflet inside the box said (in very small print) “may cause ringing in the ears.” Duh! If I’d known I would have never taken it. But, if you read my other posts, I’m not at all bitter about this. Why? Because tinnitus was a blessing in disguise. As a result, I’m a better person, I eat better, I’m much more healthy and spiritually grounded.
