      They possibly have left over stock. But, only 1,500 people were taking it because of the risks involved. So that's why I'm guessing left over stock.

      I've had tinnitus for years now and the only positive has been using Trobalt. I use it now like an aspirin, as if I had a headache.

      I've tried most things and this is the only relief I ever have, so there has to be something positive in it.

      It is a shame that it has been discontinued, it was primarily for epilepsy, but the side effects were not good.

      This promising drug should be explored and the side effects should be tried to be eliminated.

      Fortunately I have enough of Trobalt for several years worth of relief.

      Loud sounds.
      As I understand it retigabine has been taken off the market, but is there anyway I can get my hands on this stuff. It seems to work wonders for some people with tinnitus. I would probably cycle its use to prevent serious side effect problems.
