Hi. Yes vincristine is noted to cause ototoxicity (tinnitus) in some patients that receive it. In general, hearing is fully restored with no symptoms after the drug is discontinued but that could take a few months. In the meantime, a physiatrist--a physical medicine and rehabilitation MD specialist--can treat the tinnitus with cervicocranial manipulations and other modalities
