Tinnitus can be caused by many things. The ringing you hear in your ear is actually your ear trying to heal itself. Not saying that your ear is making a sound its just the way our brain interprets the injury to your ear. And I'm using the term "injury" loosely. Certain medications can effect the viscosity of the ear drum and fluids mimicking an injury. Seroquel is riddled with bizarre side effects. Its not listed specifically as a side effect but could be a symptom of another side effect. Unless there was damage done to the ear it should go away after time. The ear slowly heals and cannot fully repair itself if enough damage is done. The only relief I know of is White Noise. I also know that noise cancelling headphones work too. I hope this helps.
Since I began taking Seroquel Oct of 2016, I had constant "noise" from both ears. The monotone noise is like the sound of soft snow landing on ground; or twinkling stars. It doesn't resemble a high pitch piercing sound. However, this noise does intensify at peculiar times, always in both ears. It lasts up to 5-10 seconds, then the tone returns to the "normal" key of sound. I hear it: in shower; in bathroom with fan on; outdoors and in. And so it goes... anywhere, everywhere. No sound except my voice when I talk. Thank goodness after taking my dose at bedtime, I hear nothing after falling asleep. I wake up in morning, that sound begins again.
I have been taking Seroquel 200mg xr for severe insomnia for about five years now and it did give me those results tinitis in my right ear its annoying but yes permanent you can reduce the ringing volume by vitamins and healthy eating
I have had a ringing in my right ear since I had surgery. I have been on Hydrocodone before with previous surgeries. The only difference is the Seroquel 100mg. I believe this might be the issue. I have also experienced confusion and vertigo. It definitely helps me sleep, but I am not sure if it's worth it.
