Question: Is there a cure for ringing in the ears?? I have had this problem for several years, but the severity has increased. It is usually loudest in the evening. I was tested by an audiologist and the prognosis was slight high end hearing loss. Can this be a side affect from meds? Can this cause other problems...such as interruption of sleep..or is this "just an annoyance".

Yes, there is a cure for ringing in the ears

Detailed Answer:
Hi Mam,
For your kind information there is a cure for the ringing in the ears. There are so many causes for the ringing in the ears but for you , I suggests
1. Strict control on blood sugar and blood pressure.
2. Tablet alprazolam 0.5 mg once in night for 1 month.

In your case cause of ringing in the ears may be diabetes, hypertension, hearing loss and/ or medication.

Thanks
