Tinnitus and Ototoxic Drug Information

Some prescription and over-the-counter drugs can affect/worsen existing tinnitus or, in some cases, cause tinnitus as a side effect and damage one's hearing (ototoxicity). Before you consider any change in your medication(s) or treatment strategy, consult with your personal physician. Ask questions, and be sure to mention other medications, supplements and vitamins you currently take.

The Center for Hearing Loss Help
The Center for Hearing Loss Help recently released a comprehensive list of the 563 drugs, herbs and chemicals that are known to be associated with tinnitus. The 30 page 2013 list of “Prescription Medications, Over-the-Counter Drugs, Herbs & Chemicals Associated with Tinnitus” is available free for download.

Also, read a helpful article from Neil Bauman, Ph.D., that appeared in the April 2009 issue of Tinnitus Today.
