      Did it lower the tinnitus? Did it affect your tinnitus good or bad? Did you take it long term?

      I was thinking about trying Tiagabine if the doc will prescribe it for me. It went generic in April. Anyone else heard of or tried this?

      a few days maybe? I still have a vial of it, there's a supplement supplier in the US that sells it.

      Interesting, how were you able to get a supplement supplier to sell you a prescription drug?

      Tiagabine isn't over the counter.

      Sorry, I'm mistaken. I've confused this with tianeptine, which is also a prescription drug that has no business being sold as a supplement, but is (or was as of a year ago).

      Tiagabine I would expect to suppress tinnitus in the same way that Sabril does, but irreversible GABA uptake inhibitors always seemed too scary to muck with to me.

      Wow that is amazing! I had no idea Tianeptine was available in the U.S. Did it help your mood?
