      I have tried Minoxidil for hair growth and I noticed my tinnitus got quieter, after a while I researched about it and found it is a potassium channel modulator like other stuff that is tested for tinnitus treatment. I recommend people to try it out and use 1ml-2ml a day rubbing in their face, relatively close to their ears.

      I would say I noticed a 50% decrease. You can buy it from every pharmacy.

      Have read this can cause T. Not relieve it. Interesting that you think it helped. Maybe a placebo?

      I don't think so as I was not even focused on that it was just when I started noticing that my tinnitus is not so high as usual.

      This thread should not be in the alternative treatment as Minoxidil is a hard drug comparable to things in treatments thread and nowhere along the lines of massage, hypnotism, supplements and similiar things in alternative treatments.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      long term NIHL and recent acoustic trauma
      Nice find
      The scalp is very vascular I would rub a good amount onto the scalp and it will penetrate the bloodstream
      Also, oral minoxidil is called loniten and is sold on prescription and Internet
      More serious side effects on heart and such but worth a try
