I have had tinnitus for about a month which has greatly impacted the quality of my sleep. After much research on this forum and the web I took my first 15mg Remeron last Friday night and woke up Saturday morning with roaring tinnitus. Luckily my tinnitus sound reduced steadily over the weekend and this morning it was back to normal. I went to my GP this morning and explained nicely that in my opinion the medical profession does not fully understand the potential that medications in wide use have for very negative impacts on tinnitus. I told him I wanted to cure my insomnia using natural methods. He referred me to a clinical phycologist who specializes in sleep disorders without using medications. At the moment I walk 4 miles per day and take one 3mg melatonin and eat one banana one hour before bedtime. I have yet to experience any benefit from this routine. I would be greatly interested in other forum members experiences at improving their sleep problems using natural methods that have no risk of making the tinnitus worse. I would greatly appreciate any feedback.
