      Tinnitus Since:
      2008 > 2009 "cured" >2nd onset June 2016
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Noise Induce ( loud music )
      Based on work in the 1990s, French researchers demonstrated that Tinnitus occurs after damage to the ear that causes an increase in the number of NMDA receptors in nerve cells inside the cochlea. Ketamine blocks NMDA receptors, and in two large studies, over half of the patients treated with S-Ketamine injected directly into the ear experienced significant improvement in their Tinnitus symptoms, with these beneficial effects lasting several months. Our program uses a modified version of this therapy, using four, five, or six slow IV infusions of Ketamine over a two-week Period.

      Early treatment may be critical. The results of ongoing research indicate that Ketamine is most effective in individuals who have experienced onset of Tinnitus within the previous year.

      Acoustic trauma
      So how would this treatment exactly go? And is this also considered to be closely linked to people getting psychoses?

      I don't mean to be a downer, but is this FDA approved? Are there any research papers done on this subject that one could read?

      No one knows, maybe call up the clinic and ask? Ketamine has amazing potential as a treatment for chronic depression. I am curious to whether it actually diminishes the noise, or simply removes the cloud from the tinnitus sufferers psyche, enabling them to occupy their thoughts with something other than tinnitus.
