      My supply of trobalt is running out and if I don't end up like MPT I need a back up plan. So what drugs are good at reducing t and h? Hopefully someone knows?

      Many thanks, in advance.

      Except for benzos, pretty much nothing will reduce your T. Dunno about H.

      There are some reports that Tegretol might make a difference. Some say that NAC has helped. Some others use corticosteroids. IV lidocaine. Dopamine agonists. Neurontin. Betaserc. Melatonin and dogmatyl. Insert drug here.
      But there are no reports or studies of anything that consistently does what you ask. Maybe something will work for one person but not for someone else.

      Your only choice is to try everything that has ever been suggested and that is a bad, bad idea that will take a long, long time.

      for me, NAC helps take the edge off.

      Ive heard some positive experiences with that one


      Before I would want to know exactly what was in this, or any supplement mix, before I took it. Supplements aren't harmless. Some, like melatonin (which is a hormone, not a mineral or plant), are pretty close to pharmaceuticals. They can interact with other medications you are taking.

      I do agree with others here that say: what works for some won't work for everyone. And there is no solid research that supports anything. NAC, used only following extreme noise exposure, has helped me. And so have benzos. But taking benzos daily to quiet your tinnitus is NOT a long term solution. I am weaning off regular alprazolam/Xanax use now, even though I took very low doses.

      There is atleast one person from this forum who has been tinnitus free for 3 days now, after having it for 4 years. The hearing rescue tablets didnt just lower her tinnitus, it has completly vanished.

      Supplements in the U.S. are scary, because they just aren't regulated very well. The bottom-line is that you just don't know for sure what you are getting.
      It is unfortunate, but you hear so many folks saying (writing here) things about certain drugs and/or supplements with nothing more than anecdotal information and quite often, even less evidence than that. I know that often they are just trying to be helpful, but it really can do more harm than good sometimes.

      BINGO.......my point exactly. I think we need a little more evidence. If that stuff really works, somebody just made billions......
      Are you sure you don't have a financial stake in that product?

      I have no evidence. For all I know she could have been lying. However, from my point of view, I see that as unlikely. If she was the one selling it on amazoon she would have sent me that link when I asked her. Had to look that up myself and clicked on a random page. And no I have no gain in this, Im just trying to give a heads up to a man in a bad situation. I dont think there will be a miracle cure that deals with every case of tinnitus. Never said this was a miracle cure that is making billions. I said it seems to be working for one person in here, so maybe it will work for danny boy since he has had good responses on other drugs like trobalt. Its atleast worth a research on the internet.

      I personally am always interested in things that work for others. I found out about NAC through someone posting on Tinnitus Talk. I also tried plenty of other things that some said worked for them -- they didn't for me. But hey, I only wasted $20 or so per bottle, it was worth a try.

      @DavidJ Is correct, though: supplements are loosely regulated in the US, although things are getting better. A supplement blend, like this one on Amazon, does need to list what's in it. But one of those ingredients, under FDA regulations, can be "proprietary blend" -- which means their own magic mix that they don't have to report to consumers.

      I personally had a terrible reaction to a pure GABA supplement that someone (not here at TT) recommended. My heart rate accelerated to the point that I almost went to the emergency room. I now am a lot more cautious about what I take.

      Hey Danny klonopin reduces my T consistently but it's not something you want to get hooked on. I take it every 2 or 3 days at nite and I'll have a real quite following day ...

      Jesse,
      I am sorry. Didn't mean to insinuate you were in it for the money. I know you are here for the same reason as I. I was just being a little sarcastic with regard to the miracle product, because I have seen so many miracle products that 99.999 percent of the time are scams. Just do a search for a cure for "T" and the first thing that pops-up is LipoFlavanoids. What a rip! I've seen it advertised on T.V. It doesn't work, but before I had "T" and did a little research, I would have bought it.

      This Reddit user claims that Q10+Ginko reduces tinntius.

      " I have been a tinnitus sufferer and 3 days ago started taking Q10 + ginko (ginko alone doesn't impact tinnitus at all) has REALLY immensely lowered my tinnitus volume... I took 200mg Q10 first day, 400mg second and third day... I really reccomend someone try this! I was recommended this by a doctor of a friend and it has almost cured it for me :) "

      He's not gonna know whether it's ginko or Q10...I reckon it's Q10. Ginko has been proven in studies to have no effect.

      He didnt said how long he had T. Maybe its acute?
      Also 3 days?

      Yeah sorry had to read multiplie rtg/trobalt reports from people that took it at least from month to start believing it might actually work in some cases.

      There are spikes that are longer than month for some people and 3 days? its nothing.
      Q10 is antioxidant right like NAC
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coenzyme_Q10#Biochemical_role

      I don't see what other effect it could have for us?
      Someone smarter than me maybe can comment.

      Curcumin(turmeric) capsules may have made some difference in my case. It has been mostly 2/10 average these days except for a few days it has flared badly I dont know why. I haven't taken turmeric capsules either since a few days

      Now your saying that trobalt helps reduce your tinnitus ? what happened to Keppra ? I know that this was an old thread but I was just wondering are you taking both now ?
