      Thanks!

      @valeri ,

      I take one capsule in the morning, and one in the middle of the afternoon. That way, it keeps the effects of the NAC going all day.

      If you decide to take it, I'd like to know how it works for you.

      I know this post is old, but I also have reactive form of tinnitus. Just wondering how @valeri is doing now? My T reacts to all sorts of other sounds, loud group of people, television (especially), the car radio, road noise when driving, my heater or ac in the car, faucets, keyboards etc. I do not necessarily feel pain in my ears though, just the hissing T gets louder as it attempts to compete with the exterior sounds. Mine is newer onset- 9 weeks and already I've noticed some improvement. Some days it does not react or if I'm busy I don't notice the reaction and most of the time I can watch TV still for an hour or so and I just deal with the reacting which is an improvement since it started because I was unable to do this for the first month. I have also been able to tune out my T occasionally while watching TV if I'm very interested in the show although usually it's always there and more high pitched then the tv. I really hope it continues to improve for me and am grateful so far I'm not having any difficulty sleeping.

      First round of retigabine helped me a lot with reactive hissing.

      Hi, @valeri. I know this is an old thread, but I am massively struggling with reactive tinnitus. I’m having a similar experience to what you described. Did this ever improve for you?

      I’m very sorry you suffer with reactive tinnitus. I understand how difficult it is.
      Mine has been on/off, starts with burning pain and my ears feel as if acid has been poured in them.

      The only thing that helps me, in the lack of Trobalt, is benzo Rivotril. It doesn’t go away but takes the edge off.

      I’m expecting my next round of reactivity to start soon.
      It’s impossible to mask.

      Did you find anything that gives some relief at least?

      Unfortunately, I haven’t found anything that provides relief. It is not maskable and reacts to all external noise. I am holding out for a cure at this point.
