      Actually I have a couple of questions and a couple more:

      1. Does it lower it right after you drink alcohol?

      2. How long will it lower your tinnitus for and does it lower it longer if you drink more at the same sitting?

      3. If you take it in the morning will it lower your tinnitus for the rest of the day?

      4. If you take it at night is your tinnitus lower in the morning, louder, or the original level that you had before consuming alcohol?

      Thanks for all your help...trying to do some more research

      Yes, 15 mins or so after!

      Depends on the amount drunk, from an hour to several hours

      I don't drink in the mornings

      Then it's louder in the morning

      Yeah, it gets lowered, if I'm with fiends and have about 3 beers it will lower for an hour, or till I got to bed. It is louder when I wake up the next day.

      Yup red wine lowers mine and makes all my problems go away for a few hours, of course when I wake up in the middle of the night it's back and normal service is resumed the next day, until I open a new bottle of course lol

      I can't drink in the morning as I have a technical job and meetings etc to attend too along with managing staff and looking after all their bullshit otherwise I would be a full time alcoholic*

      * I had this same ideology before acquiring t.

      Drinking alcohol makes no difference on my T. But after a few glasses of whiskey I don't care anymore..;)

      A few glasses of red wine will lower my T and send me to sleep. However I will generally wake up early with a bit of a hangover which is not great with T. There is a price for everything!
