Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I have a mild ringing in my ears. Doesn't interfere with life, just annoying when it gets quiet.
From this study (3 months ago):
It is bilateral for 1 year which was started after a few years. The drug has been used so far.
From this study (8 months ago):
In 2009 this part of recommended treatment for Pre (A1C w= 6.5). The other two meds were Januvia (which I am still taking) and Cymbalta that I had taken before with no adverse effects. After the initial constipation and continual urination I was taken off all three. Two weeks later I had my first real indication of Tinnitus.
From this study (9 months ago):
Stopped taking but still have ringing
From this study (3 years ago):
One of my ears started buzzing a few hours ago and hasn't stopped. I had a similar experience one time with an antidepressant that they took off the market several years ago.
