Adderall and ringing in the ears?

I'm just checking to see if anyone else has a ringing in their ears after having taken Adderall for a few weeks. My 9 y/o son has been complaining of ear stuffiness and just yesterday, he got this look on his face and told me "Help, my ear is ringing, there is a sound in it". I'm thinking if I take him to the dr. he will just be put on Sudafed, I can do that at home myself, no appt. needed. Just curious. Thanks.

Re: Adderall and ringing in the ears?

Is this a common effect with this medication. I have read alot of info about AdderalXR and it has not made any note of ringing in the ears. It only states that headaches are possible. Has anyone found anything that has been useful to help control the ringing.
Very curious for info.
Thanks

Re: Adderall and ringing in the ears?

I took my kids off the med after Canada pulled it off the market. But, my son still complains about the ringing, so my next aha is that maybe it's from allergies.

Re: Adderall and ringing in the ears?

Why was Adderal pulled in Canada?

Re: Adderall and ringing in the ears?

I heard it was linked to 20 s, I just read it is back on the market, but it comes with the warning that people with structural heart abnormalities shouldn't take it. Since my childs teacher or the school nurse would call me to check if my son had taken it, when he had, that suggested to me it wasn't working and why take the risk anymore.

Re: Adderall and ringing in the ears?

Johna & CTFD40,

Almost any medication can cause ringing in the ears (tinnitus). It is an especially common side effect. Aspirin is one of the worst culprits.

However, please note that "stuffiness" in the ears and ear pain are NOT at all the same thing as ringing in the ears (although they can occur simultaneously). Stuffiness and ear pain should both be investigated by a doctor.

Re: Adderall and ringing in the ears?

I agree with what you are saying. What can be done if anything to control the ringing in the ears?

Re: Adderall and ringing in the ears?

Honestly, I don't think there is anything if it's the medicine causing it other than stopping the med. I suppose you could try an antihistamine.
