Tinnitus with prostate medication anyone.

Posted , 9 users are following.

Hi. I just wondered if anyone has suddenly got tinnitus when they have started prostate medication. I seem to have developed it since being on Finesteride and Doxozasin?

    I have tinnitus for about 5/6 years, but never put that together with alpha blockers. But that is about the time I started taking Flomax/Rapaflo, then Hytrin. 

    Have you seen anything that shows a correlation? 

    I have been off all that stuff for a few months and it hasn’t gone away...

      Hi yes I got it 9 months into Finesteride. Not surprised, along with all the other problems that stuff has inflicted me with! Probably read the instructions in the not so distant future saying it can cause tinnitus. I jest thee not!

    I have been on Doxozosin for 5 or 6 years and have had tinnnitus for longer than that.  Did not notice any worsening after starting on the alpha-blocker.  Went to an Alison Krauss concert last night (fabulous) and although the volume was very tolerable, my wife and I both noticed the ringing seems worse than usual when we got home.

    Yes - I got that too shortly after starting Proscar, I had been on alpha blockers for several years before that and never had any ringing in my right ear mostly until finasteride.

    I have had tinnitus for about 7 years prior to starting Flomax.  Flomax made it worse, so I did the research, which suggested that alfuzosin wouldn't exacerbate the condition.  Had my uro switch me to alfuzosin and the tinnitus seems no worse than before taking alpha blockers. With regards to LUTS, alfuzosin works better for me than Flomax.

    Hi Graham, I got a ringing in my ears with bph around the same time I started using natural supplements in an unsuccessful effort to shrink my prostate, I still have it today and it is getting louder I hate it although there is a possibility it may be from a damaged c4 neck issue as google lists several symptoms all of which I have which are from c4 damage which in turn supposedly put pressure on the spinal nerves which cause all the side affect symptoms.I have yet to research the subject.
