      I really would like to know if clobazam can reduce tinnitus like alprazolam can. Anyone with experience?

      I don't know of any drug that reduces Tinnitus. If it existed we'd all be on it.

      Benzos can make you less anxious about your tinnitus and therefore perceive it as quieter.

      The problem is that you may rely on this too much and build a tolerance to them, before you know it you're somewhat addicted. When you try to taper down/come off of them, you can have rebound anxiety and perceive the tinnitus as even louder.

      @Lyrica I've been on Clonezepam off and on last couple years and for me Clonezepam always quiets down my T problem like other posters indicated is tolerance so you can be on it for a while then ween off cleanse and repeat been doing that now for almost 2 years .

      Well it is true man. I have tinnitus for 4 years now and it still gets reactivated regularly. However during this 4 years I sometimes managed to *completely* eliminate the T using different kinds of anticonvulsant drugs. But only temporary though, at the cost of heavy intoxication.

      I'm not saying there's not some drug that randomly works for certain people.
      Xanax knocks off some anxiety for me but does literally nothing for tinnitus. And I'm not the only one there.
      What is your anticonvulsant cocktail and have others repeated the result?
