      I've just read your latest post in Susan's thread.

      Could it be that reducing the Mirtazapine dosage contributed negatively and brought back your symptoms? Otherwise, what could be the reasons?

        Hi @Yosemite ! Thank you for your message.

        I reduced the Mirtazapine at the beginning of January 2024 (I went from 22.5 mg to 15 mg).
        My condition was "stable" until early March.
        I think that if Mirtazapine was involved in the deterioration of my sleep, I would have felt the effects after about 3 weeks?
        I don't really know, but if I were to go back to 22.5 mg, it would be a kind of defeat for me.

        I understand why upping the dosage back to 22.5 mg would be seen as a "defeat" as it would probably mean that your sleep / T is dependent on Mirtazapine. It is definitely a dilemma. :-|

      The way you describe your Tinnitus below is how I could describe mine. Does food impact you? Spikes from sound? Is Hearing protection possible for you? Mine sends T through the roof.

        I take 22.5 mg of mirtazapine every night to help me sleep. Up until 1 year ago I was taking the maximum dose (45 mg).

        Tinnitus can really improve, but it can take a long time (it took me almost 5 years).

        Stay strong, I'm sure it will get better one day. And don't hang around this forum too much either, because there's a lot of negativity there, and that doesn't help you get better.

        My condition has improved over the last few months, I sleep better, my tinnitus is less intrusive and thanks to that I've even resumed a social life little by little.

        That’s good news. So happy for you. I’m the negative on this forum. :( I have Nox and reactive T. I have some hope but cant see it getting better. It’s an 11/10 and my ears hurt at the smallest of sounds.

      Hey Kam75, hope you are well. You had mentioned in one of your posts that your T is really bad. Unfortunately I am in that club. I wonder how you manage each day.

      Hi there.I saw your post about naproxen worsening your tinnitus. I took 5 days of naproxen in January for an ankle issue and my tinnitus has gone crazy and I've developed pain hyperacusis. How are you doing now? I hope you've seen some improvement. I could never have imagined the damage we could do with a few days of naproxen.

        It's exactly the same for me, I blamed myself to death for having taken this medication, I cried every night. But there is a time when you are resigned and no longer hopeful that it will get better...
        Fortunately I don't have the feeling that it made my hyperacusis worse.

        I'm glad to hear it didn't make your H worse. I'm really hoping mine improves. I am holding onto hope that by the end of this decade we may have some definitive treatment to actually reverse the damage

        I am very hopeful that Shore's device will help us. It is currently the most promising treatment. From what I read on Tinnitus Talk it is probably the only option for us in the near future.
        There is the Ebselen molecule too, but years of testing still need to be done.

        Hi @Biaxca! To be very honest with you, there is unfortunately no medication on the market today that can even alleviate tinnitus.
        At the time there was Tobalt, but it was withdrawn from the market because of its serious side effects.

        I am currently on Mirtazapine, an antidepressant that helps me sleep a little, but not completely.
        If your tinnitus is recent, it may very well get better or even disappear. Don't give up hope! Shore's device should be on the market in the next year or two and that might help.

        Hi @KoolKat, thanks for your message.

        When I had my first tinnitus in 2014, it was so mild that I was able to live completely normally.
        It was the sound trauma I had 2019 (so at the age of 28) that propelled me into the Abyss of hell.

        Since this trauma I have at least 3 more sounds in my head (so 4 sounds in total).
        I have a very high-pitched sound, a dental drill sound and an electric sound.

        I have also developed hyperacusis.

        I also feel, like you, that I have wasted my best years.
        I've been single for 6 months and don't know how to find a woman because all the places to meet are noisy.
        On top of that I can't sleep, even with 45 mg of Mirtazapine + melatonin... These damn sounds wake me up all the time.

        I can't help but feel very pessimistic when I see that all potential treatments for tinnitus have failed.
        And even if something does work, if it does, we'll probably be too old to enjoy life.

        Best regards, and thanks again for your message. It is always good to be able to talk to someone that can undestrand you.

      despite living in different countries we got alot of similarities. who would of thought 2013 was our last year of normal living. i feel our full potential was never achieved. I had so much to look forward to in 2014, n WE both were in our young early-20s. such a shame our years were wasted dealing with this. I pray for our sakes susan or someone comes through for us.
