In reply to EFFEXOR HEARING LOSS ! ! !, posted by RickF on May 22, 2006, at 20:17:49

Both ears or just one? What are you hearing? Good call going to the ENT, you may want to go back btw if you haven't recently.

I experienced unilateral tinnitus on Effexor XR, 150mg. I withdrew. It has only recently subsided, and it's been sort of on-off (I still will occasionally get a "rushing" sound in my right ear). It's been a month. I suspect the tinnitus could have something to do with the way venlafaxine increases blood pressure.

Many drugs are ototoxic, but venlafaxine isn't known to be one. From my knowledge anyway. I did a literature search but came up with nothing other than anecdotes. (One entry, probably a letter/case report. Pubmed ID 7762476) Good luck.
