Hi , well i suffer from anxiety for a long time and couple months ago i went to my MD and divided to try to control it with out Med but after 2 months felling more anxious i started to take Citalopram 10ml but only half table for one week (5ml), I experienced all kind of side effects but one that still there after 2 weeks the the ringing in my ears , and is making me feel so annoying and kind of anxious becouse is always ringing , I've been thinking about droping the medication but I'm scare about the side effect of no taking the med, now have anyone experienced that and may be disappear like the others side effects?

I heard that is call Tinnitus and could stay permanent and there is where i got really worry..

      Hi dan. I have had tinnitus on and off before starting the meds but since starting citalopram I hear it every night and it's louder than before. I think I will mention it to my doctor when I see her next week. Thanks for your post. I did not realise that it could be due to the meds
