Hi, I've been taking 10mg of Amitriptyline for 5 nights. Ever since I started I can hear ringing in my ears. It's more noticeable at night.

Has anybody else had this, I know it can be a dude effect but need to know if it will stop.

Don't think I can live with it if it's permenent. The tablets are making me feel awful so far.

If I stop will I be left with tinnitus?

      Try ear plugs or cotton wool it. Works for me being using them for years as I'm a very light sleeper

    I have irreversible tinnitus from working around loud construction equipment for years. I found an electronic device that plays ocean waves, the sound of a stream, and a few others. I listen to the ocean waves when I go to bed. It doesn’t stop the ringing, but it helps me. I’ve had tinnitus so long it’s become a normal part of life. When I was first was diagnosed with it, the Dr. suggested playing static on the bedside radio to drown it out. Never tried it. It’s supposed to help drown out the noise.

    I was prescribed amytriptyline for a  miss-diagnosed nerve pain.  It resulted in me having constant and unwanted loud music in my head.  There is no control over this apart from having to use a radio at full blast to counteract the sound.  A little research on the internet, showed this as a well known, if fairly rare sympton of the drug.  It goes by the name of musical hallucination.  It is very distressing.
