Hello Dr Nagler!
First off let me say thank you very much for everything you have done so far for me and being there and helping me so much I recently have developed tinnitus on March 14th today is April 22nd and it's been Non-Stop I went in today and talk to my primary care doctor he prescribed me 10 mg of prednisone take one tablet by mouth three times a day and there's 12 of them and he also prescribed me sumatriptan 50 mg... he prescribed me them due to having cluster headaches for the past 2 weeks I am under a lot of stress due to going through a 13 years separation and that's what caused me to have anxiety and depression and I got on Zoloft took it for 3 days and that's when the ringing started my question is I don't know what sumatriptan is really.. he told me to start the prednisone and then if my headache is still there the next day take the sumatriptan. He said it's for major headaches now I'm wondering is that going to damage my brain? I go back in a week to check in and see how I'm doing and also can you have Meniere's disease without having hearing loss. And one more question can you have all the symptoms of Meniere's disease from being stressed emotionally? I know you were very busy man so whenever you get a chance can you please reply thank you

Sumatriptan does not cause brain damage.

Meniere's is classically a syndrome comprised or four elements: fluctuating hearing loss, low pitched tinnitus, fullness in the ears, and episodic vertigo. It would be rather unusual to have Meniere's without the hearing loss component.

Various "triggers" that have been described for Meniere's, but I am very hesitant to attribute these sorts of things to stress alone.

All the best -

You're truly the best!! Thank you!! One more question what antidepressant would you recommend for people with T? Think I need to talk to my doctor about getting on one due to the fact I'm getting depressed and anxiety not only because of the T with personal stuff also.. Thanks again!!

I would recommend whatever antidepressant your own physician (who knows you best!) suggests irrespective of your tinnitus.
