Hello All. I have not posted here for sometime. I hope you are all doing well for the start of 2017. I have had tinnitus now for approx 4.5 years and have been on Amitriptyline for about 3.5 yrs which was recommended by the tinnitus doctor at the uclh in London that I was referred to for face/ear pain I suffered the same side of the tinnitus - similar to neuralgia. However I have since put on 2 stone which I cannot move despite diet and excercise. I notice that some of the later posts recommend Nortriptyline to help reduce tinnitus noise but I have seperately read it can also increase tinnitus noise but is weight netural. I know all medicines have thier own side effects and even the Amitriptyline leaflet says it can cause tinnitus. I have booked an appointment with the doctor to see if if she thinks Nortriptyline would be suitable for me but I would welcome any comments from persons taking Nortriptyline as to how it has helped them/whether they have noticed any side effects etc. I look forward to hearing from you.
