Comments from related studies:
From this study (8 months ago):
Don't know if the two are related, but I have developed severe Tinnitus over the last 2 years, and it appears to be worsening. I was told that Melatonin could be one solution to my problem. I will be on Warfarin for the rest of my life.

Dave on May, 27, 2012:
A few days ago, I got ringing in my right ear, but it hasn't gone away for 4 days now! I have been on warfarin since a DVT was found in my leg end of January (about 4 months ago.)
I googled "warfarin ear" and found this page. My concern is growing!
My ringing was not induced by any noise exposure at all so it leads me to believe the warfarin is a strong suspect.

Suffering from tinitus and seeing if there is a link
From this study (2 years ago):
This side effect started after I was put on Warfarin. The higher the dose, I take 15 mg on 6 days and 10 mg one day a week.
