      no, That means chronic Tinnitus unfortunately ... what kind of sound you have is what defines the name pure tone, static, rumbling, drone ... or whatever ...

      When you say "similar," do you mean chemically identical? That is, do you have generic cyclobenzaprine? If so, then standard doses are typically 5mg or 10mg. You should, however, take exactly as prescribed by your doctor! What I will tell you is that there has been some evidence that Flexeril has been beneficial in alleviating tinnitus when taken at substantially higher doses than that. If I recall the study referenced at the first post of this thread, researchers found that 30mg did the trick (statistically speaking). Again, I am not suggesting that you do anything other than what your doctor recommends.

      Best, Golly

      I took 50mg of flexeril yesterday. Helped my TMJ as expected; does nothing to my tinnitus either way.

      In what way does it help with TMJ and can you influence your T by pressing your jaw?

      Hmmmm funny... I had some surgery 2 weeks ago and noticed my T had been louder after surgery... Stopped talking the flexeril a few days ago and woke up Mon morning with a sudden increase (like OMG WTF !!!!) Im in touch with ENT who wants to do steroids but my ortho doc who did the surgery said NO it can affect my foot that i had surgery on... There goes that little bit of hope :'( Wonder if i should start taking the flex again? or if stopping that made it worse/spike ?? IM having a real hard time coping with the volume level, tad depressed!!!! Ill try anything to help!!!

      Guys I took cyclobenzaprine for 6 months and it stopped my tinnitus almost to zero.
      However after that time the medication lost its effectiveness and the tinnitus came back with more power. Now I suffer severely.
      I have read 10 to 30mg as medication, I took 300mg at morning and night!
      I didn’t feel like zombie or any different, I tolerated pretty well.
      After 7 months of not taking it, I will try it again and started slowly to increase the medication with the hope that it will help again.

      Wow that's a large amount! How did you get a prescription that high??

      I too take 5mg flexeril here and there and seems to help with the low drone/humming. Doesn't take it away completely, it just softens it a bit where it is a little more bearable.
