      Has anyone tried melatonin "long-term"?

      If so, did your tinnitus improve?

      "CONCLUSIONS:
      Melatonin is associated with a statistically significant decrease in tinnitus intensity and improved sleep quality in patients with chronic tinnitus. Melatonin is most effective in men, those without a history of depression, those who have not undergone prior tinnitus treatments, those with more severe and bilateral tinnitus, and those with a history of noise exposure."

      Sulpiride and melatonin decrease tinnitus perception modulating the auditolimbic dopaminergic pathway

      CONCLUSIONS:
      Sulpiride and melatonin reduce tinnitus perception, decreasing dopamine activity. The tinnitus auditolimbic dopaminergic pathway has broad therapeutic implications.

      No, it doesn't do anything to my tinnitus, but it often gives me quite striking dreams.

      I don't really notice if it does anything for my T, but it helps my sleep though - 10 minutes later I'm pleasantly super-sleepy :)
