Tinnitus: Neither iron deficiency or iron tablets are on the list of things that cause tinnitus (ringing in the ears). There is a long list of conditions and medications that can cause this problem. You need to see an ENT doctor to figure out what's going on.

Probably the most common drug causing tinnitus is aspirin.
