      Congratulations @Conan156 on being free of it! I'll have to spend a bit of time reviewing and understanding those supplements and give it a try. However as someone else mentioned in this thread, it all depends on what was the cause in the first place. I've had mine for so many years, I doubt something like what you did would have an effect on my case; but who knows! Someone else suggested that they had better focus and energy for that day - so I'm good with that as well! lol

      As well all struggle in very different ways and have our gloomy times, it's great to see some positive items like this!

      John

      Im on my third day now and the only thing that happend is that my T got louder. So i‘m stopping this. Last week my T was so far in the background that i slept in silence with no masking like a baby. Yesterday i needed a bit of masking.

      Of course i don‘t know if thats because of the NAC or something else, however that was the only thing i changed.

      I started acetyl l carnitine today, but my tinnitus was already spiked this morning before I got out of bed. I tried liquid zinc yesterday. I also tried gaba. So who knows.

      Yeah my T is super spiked today. Wtf.

      Oh man that sucks. Mine isn‘t super spiked, but enough to get me worried a lot. When i measure the needed masking db it doesn‘t look like a big difference, but when its quiet or when i plug my ears the T sounds really pissed off. More intense.

      Dont know for sure but I'm having a bad spike today. Not exactly sure why either. Probably the worst spike I've ever had. I also didnt eat today so I have no idea.

      My chiropractor prescribed phenibut and it really messed up my brain. Phenibut affects gaba. If I'd had any idea the damage it was going to cause me, I would have steered clear.

      I think chiropractors are diabolical quacks. A chirofuckhead started me on my path to tinnitus.

      @JohnAdams - I read this older post. Can I ask what kind of treatment the chiropractor did that put you on the path to tinnitus?

      Theres a little double pronged thermometer and it's used to allegedly detect nerve bundles which is actually bullshit, but anyway, he jammed it in my lower vertebrae so hard it pushed me off of the bench I foot sitting on and for two weeks my lower back was hurting badly and my nerves and muscles around that area were spamming, so I got on aspirin and probably took way too much while also playing guitar really loudly.

      You
      You’d have to wonder what the chiropractor was thinking by being so forceful

      I have been taking over 1 gram of NAC (In the trial they used 2 grams of NAC, so for 1 month or so I took 1.8grams daily) since the very beginning. So... February ish is when my order arrived and I did my research? So 8 months now. Nothing. I also take Magnesium, Vitamin B12, B6, B3, B9, C and a few others daily. Krill Oil too as that's better than Omega 3, but I tried both. Also did Vitamin D and K for a time. 5-htp for sleep sometimes but recently that spikes my tinnitus more. Melatonin for sleep daily for a few months now. Sometimes Phenibut or Xanax, but rarely.

      I tried Kratom. I can keep listing out all the supps I tried but nothing. Not even a volume reduction sadly.

      I've taken NAC and the only thing I think it does for me is to help me recover quicker after a spike. Starting to think all supplements are a waste of time. My best results have come from amitryptylene but it leaves me feeling so exhausted it would be nice to find something else that helps.

      Not for me, Curcumin has been a miracle. Lately I have been experiencing more and more silence everyday. I don't want to get my hopes up but I may be pulling out of this.

      Given this timeline, it's possible your tinnitus faded on its own, and the supplements in the meantime were only coincidence. With that said, NAC helped me initially, and it's been shown to work in the very acute stage for noise induced hearing damage. NAC boosts your liver's production of glutathione, which is a powerful antioxidant in your body, which seems to help combat the mechanism of oxidative stress which acutely causes noise induced hearing damage or tinnitus. Incidentally, coffee also boosts production of glutathione. Which is why both of these work very well for a hangover also.
