Dear Markku, I apologise for being a pain in the neck or a.. But the following post from Dan got my attention and I think it's worth perusing: I'm not the best writer or beat around the bush person so here it goes: Markku as a leader of this board I think that your guidance, with our help of course, is absolutely critical for this idea to see a daylight. As you know the retigabine thread has a great interest of us tinnitus sufferers and I think it's unacceptable that this drug had never been trialed for tinnitus per se. Being available on the market is a huge bonus, it just needs to be made available off label for tinnitus. After some testing of course. No one so far had life threatening or permanent side effects, that's promising. Even my gp, upon checking his medical info on computer, said that this drug can help tinnitus. Not sure what other members think about this idea but I would like to hear some opinions or suggestions. Over 4000 signatures from this board alone is not a small number, I'm sure people are members of other forums or groups, so we are talking many more. I can get hundreds alone from my friends and the whole dental hospital if needed I don't think it's too much to ask. Fire away TT members!
