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.
I have a horrible case of Tinnitus, and I've read on the interent that Xanax will help with this?

I also have bad anxiety, and panic disorder.. That's why I was on Risperidone, and now on this Depakote.
Welcom to the site Joshtonhenry,
I have been on Depakote for yearswith tinnitus off and on, usually it got worse when I wasn't taking care of myself. Strangely, I was on a lot of Xanax 2 mg three times a day, and the tinnitus was still there. Now I've increased my dose of Depakote, no ear ringing but now I can't see or hear properly.Go figure, everyone is different and reacts to different drugs differently.
Hope u find resolution to ur awful problem,
The Happy, Buzzy Hippy,
Oh, Laura, you are just my happiness of the day! I have what they called Sudden Deaf Syndrome. Just went totally deaf in my left ear right after a brain MRI. I don't think that had anything to do with it, but the tinny ringing & sometimes sounds like a freight train goin on in there is unreal! My doc says nothing will help that, & I need a cholear implant. Now I am 65, so don't think I am going there. Weird, but my hubby is deaf in his right ear, & has the sme thing. I was trying to blame the power company with EMF's from the power line(they do leak power too) Ours run across the back yard for the whole neighbor hood. We have a deep lot & our house only sits way bakc on it. The line run so close to our roof I still believe it causes some of it. When ever I sit to watch TV on my recling couch against the wall closet to the poser line aboe me, it gets unbearable!.I found last week at CVS pharmacy, a product made by MAGNALIFE,a product that says TINNITUS RELIEF. Well I fell for it, at $18.97 plus tax, & have faithfully tried it every day. Relief? Noper! You may want to try it. I tried looking up the ingredients before I mixed it with my meds, but did not find it here on this site. It has, well darn, I can't even read it right now! Very small print, & I am having a bad vision day. Go to the store & write down the ingredients & check them against you current meds, please. I am sorry my vision has taken a turn for the worse this morning. I will keep your question open in case it clears later on. Best of luck to you. Oh & my hubby has the same thing with the ringing & noise, but his deafness is from working in a shop with loud noises for years...
