      I thought I would use up the rest of my box and had 400mg this morning. No effect on Tinnitus, it maybe even made it slightly louder :)

      did you continue to use Flupirtine since it seems to work quite well for you? I am thinking about trying this as well.

      It has been shown that it is a toxic substance for the liver (they found that out 30 years after being on the market with countless generics circulating as well, gee, talking about being overprotective).
      If you plan on trying it, you should (after having agreed with your doctor) do liver exams before and after.

      I used it for the indicated duration (two weeks), I had no problems whatsoever while using and after having used. Nowadays, if I'm having a really bad crappy day, I may pop 300mg once and I'm good.
      But that's me and it could be a whole different case for you...

      I used it and even at 400mg it did not assist. I had not side effects though :) So it may not work for everybody.

      This seems to be the case. These drugs may be less potent when T is related to acoustic trauma or anxiety or whatever. Nobody knows, because nobody is bothering to put some real research on the matter.
      But there are people who might benefit greatly from using them and get their life back in order. That's a good thing, right?
      It's all I'm saying...

      Anybody that benefits in anything with this condition is a good thing. The total random results each of suffers achieve depending on difference medications does not make me feel hopeful about future treatments though!

      @Pleasure_Paulie

      Just a suggestion (don't expect any rocket science here, merely an alternative way to take the medicine which might be more effective - for me, it is).
      You have the dope (flupirtine) in capsule or pill form?
      If it's the capsule form, fill a glass with, say OJ or water, and empty the contents of 3-4 (300-400mg) capsules in the liquid.
      Since the flupirtine dust despises water solubility, stir with a spoon until it finally decides to mix with the water or the juice. Then drink it (the capsules are useless gelatin anyway, throw them in the bin). Refill the glass with water to make sure you get all the dope (some of "the final product" tends to just stick around the bottom or the sides of the glass).
      Worth a shot.

      I finished my box from the Russian doctors unfortunately :) But on the same note, there is actually no reason why flupirtine should have any efficacy. It works on a different channel to that of Trobalt.

      It doesn't do anything but cause liver damage. Why would you want some?
