    Hi Jane. I can relate to the pulsatile tinnitus. I have had this in one ear only since i started citalapran. I am sure it must be a side effect but my doctor says its not likely and is probably just a build up of wax. I also have found that my hair is coming out more than it used to but apparently this is also nothing to do with the medication although both tgese symptoms are listed on the sheet that comes in the packet. I am sorry i am no help and hope this annoying symptom soon settles for you. Doctors dont seem to know much about side effects but are very keen to prescribe it. Lesleu

      I have just been reading a forum about the ototoxicity of this drug and am well informed. I am going to give it time. Best wishes to you!

    I have heard a dripping sound in my left ear ever since I started taking cit over 4 months ago , I have noticed it reducing since I started reducing my dose , I first thought it was something serious but now put it down to some type of tinnitus related to the drug .

    Hi Jane, When I first had a major panic attack a year plus ago i have always had tinnitis well I think its related I'm also in a band so kinda not 100% but pretty sure its my brain at its max...well thats always been my belief I dont feel anxious or anything much anymore being on citalopram which I think is a god send!! I wonder though the pulitile tinnitis you are experiecning is similar ? hope it eases doll hnag in there I'm still alive so it cant be too bad ?
