HelloNo, it is NOT normal.There are very few substances that would cause tinnitus in the supplement realm, in fact.Only a few are reported.Yohimbine would be an example and this herb can be dangerous.Aspirin and other medications are far more likely. Tinnitus causeshearing damage: most common.Meniere's diseaseTMJCervical spine diseaseAnxietyTumorEar infectionWaxTemporal bone dysfuncitonEustachean tube dysfunction.
