      I have recently started taking neurozan tab for tinnitus. It has all the brain tonics including 120 mg gingko biloba. My tinnitus has has become more sharp and noticeable just after 3 doses of it. I can't say for sure if it was ginko or something else in the tab that has made it worse. Has anybody had increase in their tinnitus after taking gingko biloba ?

      Gingko normally helps mild deprssion and anxiety but takes about 12 weeks to build up in your system ...lots of love glynis

      Decrease of Hearing i presume.
      Ginkgo only increase vasodilatation, so it should (in some cases) help T.

      And neurozan seems like vitamins/ supplements so it seems good. And those take times to be effective. So i think this is a coincidence.

      While I was taking a lot of supplements I thought ginkgo biloba, featuring 24% flavone glycosides 6% terpine lactones made my tinnitus worse.

      Yes I started taking ginkgo recently and mine has become louder. I didnt even think of that... Oh that's a worry! Will it die back down after a while if I stop taking it??

      I doubt that it is the Gingko making your tinnitus louder. If I were you I'd continue taking it as it can increase hearing and helps some people with tinnitus. Make sure you're taking a good brand. Avogel is good. Taken as a tincture. 15 drops in a little water 3x a day. Available from Amazon.
