Well, it' hard to know long term effects of past medications but maybe it's something else causing this. Why were you depressed before, and could it be a reason for your anxiety over what you think you hear?
Or maybe something else is at work here. Before jumping to the conclusion you have a mental problem, I'd say there is time for that after you have had a complete physical to rule out any health problems that could be contributing.
I also would make sure to go to an ear specialist since this is an auditory problem.
If it turns out not to be physical, by all means then consider the possibility of a psychological reason and perhaps seek out some therapy.
