From this study (2 months ago):
I'm trying to find out what is causing the ringing in my ears. A few weeks ago I was told I have high blood pressure and I now take hydrochlorothiazide BUT I had the ringing before I was told when I was not taking hydrochlorothiazide.
From this study (1 year ago):
My doctor recommended taking Benadryl to help me sleep and for the last 5 months have had constant ear ringing. I've already gone to a specialists who ran several tests but said he couldn't find any reason why my ears would be ringing. I am still taking Benadryl and am wondering whether it could be the cause of my ear ringing.
