People with this condition often accept the reality of their problem and simply endure it for the rest of their lives. Although pharmaceutical drugs exists that address tinnitus, a lot of people are not really interested in taking a pill that could result in side effects that oftentimes are even much worse than the condition they profess to treat. Besides that, no real cure for tinnitus actually exists. The fact is, antidepressants are used as tinnitus medications since they have been reported to help stop the ringing.
