Detailed Answer:
Hello, and thanks for your question.

Cymbalta is an EXCELLENT medication to treat depression, chronic pain, and tinnitus. It is FDA-approved for treatment of depression and neuropathic pain, and is very effective for both these conditions. There have also been studies conducted on smaller groups of people that show Cymbalta can be effective in reducing tinnitus volume. My recommendation is that you give this medication a try, because I anticipate it would help you!
