Tinnitus is noise or ringing in the ears.
Some medicines can cause tinnitus and include:
Antibiotics, including polymyxin B, erythromycin, vancomycin and neomycin
Cancer medications, including mechlorethamine and vincristine
Water pills (diuretics), such as bumetanide, ethacrynic acid or furosemide
Quinine medications used for malaria or other health conditions
Certain antidepressants may worsen tinnitus
Aspirin taken in uncommonly high doses (usually 12 or more a day)
Aspirin toxicity can cause ringing in the ears (tinnitus).
I had tinnitus a while ago. I thought it could be because of a certain drug or something, but in actuality, I had fluid in my ears. Maybe try to clean your ears or something. I heard that tinnitus could also be caused by earwax, but I am not positive... Hope this helps ;)
