      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Unknown, maybe stress
      Waiting control group didn't get a placebo drug, they didn't get anything, of course active treatment group improved. Active treatment group would've improved with a sugar pill too.

      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      I tried it at 3mg/day for a while.

      Not willing to take 50mg/day for any length of time, as in the study. Drug is old and fairly well documented, but tinkering mechanically with dopaminergic reward pathways seems dangerous.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Was prescribed 25mg for tinnitus but after further research I have decided not to ingest any Naltrexone as of yet. My doctor agreed this was an ok decision to make.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      I am on low-dose Naltrexone. Day 5 currently. The idea here is to titrate up to 4.5mg daily as a maximum. This is meant to help battle any auto-immune issues if that is in fact the cause of my problems. I have neuropathy pain as well and that is the original reason for the Naltrexone.
