    Hi, I am new to the forum, and looking for insight and encouragement. I am 54 and have been on a number of anti-depression meds, with tons of therapy, and still looking for help…. I have been looking into TMS, and came across information that says, that if taking Wellbrutin/Bupropion and receiving TMS, it is very likely that you will experience severe tinnitus???? Curious if anyone is taking this medication, and if you could share any insight on this.
    Thank you

    I am a patient but did not take those two medications during TMS.
    I tried to find info on this topic and this is one resource I found:
    http://www.evms.edu/research/centers_institutes_departments/…/tms_risks_benefits/What are the benefits of NeuroStar TMS Therapy? … Combination of TMS with bupropion (Wellbutrin) has been reported to cause tinnitus, or ringing in the ears.
    If you go to the website there may be more info. I did not read the entire article.
    Also, consulting with your doctor would be a source of information. In addition you could call a few TMS Treatment offices and ask the TMS Coordinator if they have had any experience with this particular issue. Another idea is that since the website is referencing NeuroStar TMS Therapy, you could google search Neurostar (a company offering the TMS technology) and email them your question.
    Hope this is helpful. Good Luck. Stay in touch.
