I developed severe tinnitus out of the blue.  Other than slight hearing loss, the only likely candidate cause is my glaucoma medication, Simbrinza.  I have found one reference indicating that Simbrinza can cause tinnitus.  I have discontinued its use for three weeks, with no change in the tinnitus.  Are you aware of any connection between tinnitus and this drug?

Welcome, njpatn -

Whenever anybody develops severe tinnitus "out of the blue," it is only natural to try to figure out a cause ... because once you have figured out a cause, then you will no longer have developed it out of the blue! The problem is that in so doing you can easily jump to the wrong conclusion.

I am unaware of any connection between tinnitus and Simbrinza (brinzolamide/brimonidine tartrate ophthalmic suspension 1%/0.2%).

Wish I could be of more help.
