Tinnitus And Seizures

Tinnitus And Seizures

Anyone get tinnitus and seizures and are they related for you or separate issues?

I have developed tinnitus over a year or so, taking Lamotrigine and Onfi for a couple of years. Don't know how related to meds or seizures, as I also have Autoimmune Encephalitis.

I started experiencing tinnitus when i started taking Depakote. I have sensory seizures and don't notice my ears ringing before starting this med. I can hear it loudly after i take my morning dose and it slowly quiets down but doesnt go away, throughout the day, at night it happens again with the next dose.

I had tinnitus when I was on anticonvulsant It's so long ago I don't remember which medication it was It sounded as if there was a quiet humming noise ,a bit like a lawnmower I didnt associate it with meds at the time until I changed meds. It only bothered me in the quiet of the night I wore headphones while playing soft music
