I need something because this is driving me nuts. I'm taking Depakote and that's what is causing the ringing in my ears. I was also taking Risperidone, and that's when all this started. Now the ringing isn't going away. I need some help because this Tinnitus is driving me nuts. Would Xanax be the best way to go for now until I get off this Depakote? I'm only 19 years old.
