Medications and Tinnitus

There is currently no pharmaceutical intervention to eliminate tinnitus. There are, however, therapy and treatment options that can reduce the burden of tinnitus.

People experiencing tinnitus often seek pharmacological interventions through prescription drugs and dietary supplements. While there are no FDA-approved drugs to treat tinnitus, there are options to address the stress, anxiety, and depression that are caused by (and can sometimes exacerbate) tinnitus.

The internet is full of misleading claims about pills to relieve/eliminate tinnitus. And while some drugs may help reduce the perception of tinnitus, that is something that your physician should prescribe and monitor. To learn more about supplements and questions to ask your physician, see below.
