      I know the story of Don is quoted as a cautionary tale, but isn't it interesting he receded to lower than baseline after withdrawal? It's almost as though his ears/brain kept healing in the meantime when he was on benzos.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Started with a cold, possibly worsened by medication/noise
      I thought the same. I keep wondering whether the ears/brain healed in spite of the benzo, or because of it.

      Sorry, just to clarify, is the effectiveness the same as it once was?

      Noise exposure?
      Yes. It could be a placebo effect, I don't want to know. All I know is I do habituate.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Ear Infection/TMJ ??
      I am considering this approach but I'm really hesitant. I see some have been helped and one person in the tinnitus support group I am a part of states this combination helps her.

      I have been on Klonopin since late August (30 days of 0.5 mg per day) and then about 3-4 weeks of 0.5 mg cut in half 3x a day. I have been trying to wean off Klonopin for about a month now (down to 0.125 mg per day) and can definitely feel it but trying to push through and I felt the need to updose very quickly.

      I have tinnitus in my right ear only and have right side TMJ. It started in January with facial pain which I thought was a sinus infection. I started taking Augmentin (as have done before), then got tinnitus about 5 days later and inner right ear fluid. Fluid cleared up, then my jaw pain started to take off. Jaw pain has gotten better with splints (since 7/1) but no change in tinnitus.

      I can see Klonopin and Gabapentin are some serious drugs.
