Drugs with Tinnitus Side Effects


Contrary to popular belief, caffeine not linked to tinnitus

Tinnitus afflicts a significant amount of people in the USA, and sufferers have been frequently advised by doctors that if they reduce their consumption of caffeine, their symptoms will improve.

However, a study conducted at the Center for Hearing and Balance Studies in Bristol, UK, suggests that this may not be the case.
