      Dentist prescribed me an anti-biotic called Birodogyl, can this be ototoxic or have any effects on T ?

        the composition of Birodogyl is :
        Spiramycin : 1 500 000 U.I.
        Metronidazole : 250mg

        I have a throbbing tooth pain that refuse to go away even after 3 root canals. I have to take this antibiotics and NSAID with it :(

        If it helps, since developing T, I've been on four lots of amoxicillin (I'm a sickly person) and it's never affected my T. I wouldn't touch other antibiotics. My T was actually caused by the antibiotic doxycycline.

        MOST people (and that includes the T sufferers) who take the medications that are on those ototoxic lists never have any problems. It's risky, but the chance that it works out is high.

        If you can - avoid the risk, but of course if you feel like you can't avoid it, it's a different story.

      Some people in this forum reported some improvement in T and hearing with taking Prednisone months after the T onset. I'm gonna try it tomo!

      I am 27 and my hearing is between -10db and 0db from 125hz to 4khz, then 40db at 8khz, do I have a chance to recover some HF even by little?

        You need to find one that specializes in ETD. Just any ENT wouldn't do.

      7 months in, I'm so tired of hyperacusis and severe reactivity to high frequency sounds. This bothers me more than tinnitus itself :(

      today when I was eating, I was hearing sound in my ear like when you clean/wipe glass, is this TMJ ? I also felt some fluid drainage in ear
      1. Croaker

        Probably. Bear in mind a lot of things can cause the sensation of “fluid drainage.”

      after 7 months of bilateral T, my right ear stopped ringing, it's been 3 days now and it is dead silent, the left ear is still ringing tho

        A lot of the time it is the other way around - after 6-9 months of the ringing in one ear, T spreads to the formerly good ear.

        Good for you!

        In my experience, all the supplements fall into the "doesn't harm, doesn't help" category.

        The only supplement which helps me is NAC. I still take others but they make no difference if I run out, but the NAC definitely does. I thought it was supposed to protect ears rather than lower volume, but for me, it definitely lowers it.

      Could be related to muscles in the neck/face. Masseter and SCM possibly?

      In some rare cases tinnitus goes away by itself even after years. Does that mean that hearing loss can also recover after several years?
      1. weab00
        weab00
        I don't think so for sensorineural hearing loss because it means your cochlea is structurally damaged and there is no remedy for that... yet.

      what magnesium and NAC you guys recommend to me and how much should I take? Thanks!
      1. Bill Bauer
        Bill Bauer
        Unlike some other types, Magnesium bis Glycinate doesn't have a laxative effect. So there's that. As for the dosage, begin with the dosage recommended by the manufacturer on the bottle.

        NAC, if it does anything, is something to be taken immediately after an acoustic event rather than an everyday supplement.

        Bill Bauer
        Well, I've seen people write that they take NAC so that in case they get exposed to noise, there's already NAC in their system and they are ready for it... I've taken NAC for months. I am not sure whether it has helped, but I don't think it had been detrimental.

      Dentist prescribed me Cycloff 400mg ibuprofene. is it safe ? I bought it but I am still thinking if I should take it or not ?
      1. Kriszti
        Kriszti
        Ibuprofen in high doses or prolonged use can have an adverse effect on T, but basically any NSAIDs can. Paracetamol is supposed to be safer, but for me it doesn't do anything, so I take Ibuprofen when I can't take the pain. First time I had a spike, but because I haven't had any due to IP use since , I think it might have been because I was out of my mind anxious about it.

      The tinnitus is oscillating, sometimes it is intense, sometimes it is very faint and sometimes I hear silence. I feel positive :)
