My ears have been ringing since my symptoms began, at age 14 I’m now 25. When I took Abilify it seemed to help a bit with the ringing. But I also get muscle pain from Abilify and stiff joints etc. I’m tired of my back hurting and I’m trying to lose weight. I started Strattera and the ringing just got sooo much worse. I stopped taking Strattera. I took Clonidine and the ear ringing stopped.
Should I ask for Clonidine?"
Clonidine (trade names Catapres, Kapvay, Nexiclon and others) is a sympatholytic medication used to treat high blood pressure, ADHD, anxiety/panic disorder, and certain pain conditions. It is classified as a centrally acting α2 adrenergic agonist. An alternative hypothesis that has been proposed is that clonidine acts centrally as an imidazoline receptor agonist.*
It helped relax me, and also knocked me out.
So has anyone found a medication or supplement that helps with ears ringing? It’s like a migraine, or a constant sharp frequency in the back of my head that I can hear and feel in my eardrums.
