Ive just had to re start taking citalopram after pnd returning to discover that i seem to have started having tinitus again. The only link I can think of is this drug. Its driving me crazy and my GP says its not a known side effect. Has anyone taken this drug and found the same? I have found some link on the internet saying it can be a side effect not sure whether to carry on with the drug or try to change to something else..........

I don't take Citalopram, but I do suffer with Tinnitus and have done for about 6 years so you have my sympathy.

Yes! I take sertroline and it gives me tinitus. It is definitely the drug in my case and it is listed as one of the side effects. Sorry if this is bad news but at least you know the cause.

Another mnetter posted this link which actually does help when tinnitus is bad.
