      When my hearing loss was minor, I know Nicotinamide Riboside improved it. Now that it's worse because of noise exposure, it has less of an effect. But I still take it daily, hoping I can get back even 5 dB.

      Yes. Once and never again. It was 250 mg NAD IV that took about 45 minutes. I almost stopped it midway. Very painful stomach cramps, which lasted for about one month after. No change in tinnitus. No brain reboot. I'd stay away.

      Sounds rough indeed. I won't be trying that. I saw a doctor mention it's also possible to use a subQ injection as another route of administration but it's not as effective as IV. Might try that once since it's meant to be painless.

      I've got a long list of other peptides I'll probably try too. Recently, Epithalon and Pinealon look interesting. They both fight off free radicals very strongly which is something Astaxanthin also does but these other ones are much, much stronger.

      They're supposedly good for aging. There are different types of cycles but generally people take a short course for 20 days just once or twice a year.

      All the research is done by Russia. Might need to translate a lot of papers to see what's what.

      This Pinealon rewrites your DNA apparently. Not sure if I'm that adventurous but maybe it's fine. I think some of the COVID-19 vaccines done the same.

      It's an ultrashort peptide so might actually get past the blood labyrinth barrier. I might be talking completely out of my ass too.

      @Joe Cuber, does Trazodone help you with sleep? I got a prescription for it right after my tinnitus onset, but I took it only for a couple of days, because I'm paranoid about ototoxicity now. However, I have troubles with sleeping (I get only a few interrupted hours/night, I wake every single night exactly between 2-3 am and then 5.30 am). I bought Melatonin and L-Tyrosine. So far I have only tried Melatonin without effect.

      Hi @Eliska - Yes, I take Trazodone as a sleeping aid. I take it right before I lay down to sleep.

      It does help me to fall asleep, and I haven't noticed any bad effects on my tinnitus from taking it.

      I've been taking Trazodone for at least three months now. I started with 25 mg and moved up to 100 mg as I became convinced it was helping me and not harming me.

      My sleep was a complete mess when I onset 4 months ago due to massive anxiety. Even before onset, I would commonly wake up in the middle of the night (I have sleep apnea). Once I started taking anti-depression/anti-anxiety meds, taking Trazodone, using a CPAP machine, practicing good sleep hygiene, and playing nature sounds, I was able to sleep through the night.

      The results do look very promising. Gives me a lot more hope in trying out supplements now and it shows that a stack of supplements is better than individual ones since they can have very strong synergistic effects.

      I'm also looking into some very strong peptide antioxidants. I think this TB-500 I'm taking could be helping my ear pain a lot since it's a very strong anti-inflammatory. My ear pain was getting better naturally anyway, though so impossible to tell.

      My Taurine came in today. I'll be taking a 1,000 mg capsule once a day to start.

      I remember those days. I keep some Lorazepam on hand in case I relapse. I haven't had to use it in a couple of months. Although I've been obsessively monitoring my tinnitus for 48 hours now and sleep is slipping. May have to dip soon. I used a CPAP for about 6 months a few years back for some sleep issues I was having, long before tinnitus. Those machines are annoying as hell to get used to but are really helpful.

      Glad to hear you are sleeping ok these days. Sleep can make or break a person.

      Thanks @BrOKeN_1, I've been working hard on good sleep habits. It's all too easy to get off the rails. I hope you get on top of your sleep.

      Everyday I have been taking:

      Turmeric/curcumin
      B12
      ACV
      D3 (when Iā€™m not feeling well)

      And most recently which I really feel has helped with my anxiety and in turn my tinnitus, chamomile and chamomile with lavender.

      Likely Extreme Stress
      Too much and so far nothing has made a difference:

      B12
      B2
      Magnesium (Magtein Now Foods)
      CoQ10
      Omega 3
      D3 (taking this daily for about 4 years)
      MSM
      ALA
      ACV (been drinking for about 4 years)
      GABA Calm Lozenges
      Turmeric w/ pepper (been taking for about 8 years)
      Lion's Mane remains unused in the fridge since this started.

      Drink: Ginger, Ashwagandha (fuck spelling), Holy Basil teas.

      Sleep: Small bits of Benadryl and tears.

      Anyone gone the TCM route? There are links between seizures and tinnitus from the same overload of brain nerve activity. There are some herbs that are said to calm seizures and could in turn, maybe, calm the T.

      Heres to relief! Cheers!

      All that money being flushed down the toilet every day.

      Don't mind me, I have a cupboard full of the same supplements that did absolutely nothing for either my tinnitus/sleep/anxiety.

      I currently have GABA, vitamin B1 and Magnesium on my desk, but almost ready to drop them too because they don't help either.

      But - good luck to you all and please let us know if any of those 400 supplements actually work.

      I agree, for many, supplements are a lot of money flushed down the toilet, @Ben Winders.

      However, even if it doesn't work for you, it might work for others - placebo or not. Sometimes you shouldn't even underestimate the power of placebo.

      For me, several supplements have "worked" - for my use.

      I can agree with one thing though, @Ben Winders; if you are referring to supplements as a cure for tinnitus - the answer is no. But they can have good synergistic effects, and can also help with relaxation and sleep - all of which affect tinnitus and hyperacusis.

      The antioxidant group received one multivitamin-multimineral tablet once a day with their meal and one tablet of Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) twice a day on an empty stomach.

      I've ordered some ALA and should have it soon. Nootropics Depot have the highest quality supplements out of any of the shops. Lots of them underdose tablets massively. Nootropics Depot have bought competitors' supplements, lab tested them and posted results. The owner has tinnitus himself and seems like an extremely genuine guy, also very intelligent. Nootropics Depot are more expensive than most but it's higher quality and worth it in my opinion.

      The owner has tried every single supplement and still has tinnitus. Everyone is different but supplements won't get rid of tinnitus completely in most cases. There is a chance at least that some supplements might give some people some relief though and that little bit of help could mean a lot.

      This is the one I ordered.

      Possibly, not really sure. Most of them I've been taking since about mid July.

      My audiogram showed improvement so that's a help. I don't know which of the supplements did it, or changes to my diet, but it keeps me in peace of mind knowing I'm at least trying for now.

      Depending on what my hearing is like in 10 months, I will reevaluate and probably change back to old ways.
