> I have had tinnitus ever since starting Effexor XR 5 years ago. It is very loud, BUT....I have damage to my inner ears from untreated ear infections as a child, which has affected my hearing, so I wonder if that has something to do with it too??? I take 350mg.

I read that most people with tinnitus have some degree of hearing loss so it probably does have something to do with it. Your post made me remember that I had a lot of ear infections as a kid, too. I've even had doctors look in my ears and ask me if I'd had a lot of infections. My doctor said that because of the location of the auditory nerve it's really easy for CNS meds to affect it.

I found that my tinnitus on the Effexor was very dose dependent. Maybe if you lowered your dose slightly the tinnitus would get better?
