Discussion in 'Support' started by Bill_, Dec 30, 2018.


If you had steroids (e.g., prednisone) after the onset of your tinnitus, what was your experience?

  1. Steroids had no effect on my tinnitus

  2. Steroids had a positive TEMPORARY effect on my tinnitus

  3. Steroids had a positive PERMANENT effect on my tinnitus

  4. Steroids had a negative TEMPORARY effect on my tinnitus

  5. Steroids had a negative PERMANENT effect on my tinnitus

  6. Other (please specify in comments)

      I thought it might make sense to evaluate a few things on scale as large as possible. I know a poll on a forum isn't exactly "valid empirical data" but maybe we can get at least close to that.

      I'll start with this: What's your experience with steroids?

      Please vote and post your details (what caused your tinnitus in the first place, how soon after the onset of your tinnitus did you start the treatment, etc) in the thread!

      This way maybe we can establish some kind of database?

      Cool idea, a few suggestions if I may -
      A) you might want to either add a "I wasn't given/did not take steroids" option, or make the results viewable without voting.
      B) Being on TT presumably biases towards those who were not helped or who experienced negative effects.

      Mixing music for long hours and too loud I guess.
      I got prednisone and took my first dose (80mg/day) yesterday. Also yesterday evening my tinnitus was at its best, I mean it had the lowest volume since getting it.

      Coincidence? I don't know. But my T felt better. And pain in my ear was not that painful.
