      Pre-print:
      Therapeutic effects of Rosa Canina, Urtica Dioica and Tanacetum Vulgare Herbal Combination in Treatment of Tinnitus Symptoms; A Double-blind Randomized Clinical Trial

      Now, can we find this combination in a pill in the US?

      Background Tinnitus is defined as the perception of sound in the ear or head in the absence of an external stimulus for which we have no definite treatment. Neurotec® is a medication of herbal origin with IFDA approval. Previous studies showed the neuroprotective effect of Neurotec®. In this study we evaluated the effectiveness of Neurotec in improving tinnitus symptoms.

      Methods This double-blind randomized clinical trial was performed on patients with tinnitus. Patients received Neurotec 100 mg capsules (BID) or placebo for three months. Pure tone audiometry (PTA) was measured at 0.5, 1, 2, 4 and 6 KHz frequencies. Using a Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI) questionnaire, tinnitus loudness, daily annoyance, daily life or sleep disturbance, daily perception and mood alteration were evaluated.

      Results Finally, 103 (69 male and 34 female) patients with a mean age of 51.33±13.91 years were analyzed. There was no significant difference between the intervention (n=53) and the control group (n=50) regarding baseline symptoms before and one month after the intervention (P>0.05). While, they were significantly different three months after the intervention (P<0.05). The mean pure tone air and bone conduction were not significantly different between the control and the intervention group before and three months after the intervention at 0.5,1,2 and 4 kHz (P>0.05). The mean pure tone air conduction was not significantly different between the two groups before and three months after the intervention at 6 kHz (P>0.05).

      Conclusion A three-month treatment with Neurotec Capsules beside patient education can effectively control symptoms of patients with tinnitus.

      Thanks for posting.

      To summarise, in the treatment group, VAS reduced from 7.19 to 4.92 after 3 months of treatment, as opposed to VAS reducing from 6.68 to 5.96 in the placebo group.

      TFI from 58.22 to 37.52 in the treatment group.

      TFI from 59.92 to 49.72 in the placebo group.

      That is a very decent result.

      The medication is called ‘Neurotec’.

      Let’s get on it guys... start researching.

      Caveat: Patients also received ‘baseline educational counselling’. I presume that is CBT. However, the placebo group also received this counselling too.

      Interesting. Anyone find a supplier and I will try it as my tinnitus is severe again unfortunately.

      The individual herbs are available to buy in the West but the Iranian Neurotec needs finding.

      So basically treatment with B vitamins is beneficial? I read that Neurotec contains just that.

      There are different Neurotec meds/brands from my perusal of the Internet.

      The three ingredients here are not B vitamins.

      Neurotec M Capsule is a combination medicine used for the treatment of neuropathic pain. This medicine decreases pain by modulating calcium channel activity of the nerve cells.

      The study was done in 2016 and has not been peer reviewed? Is that common?

      Here is the website and contact for one of the doctors involved in the study.

      I emailed Dr Saeedi a few weeks ago about this trial and Neurotec. I also included a link to this thread. I've not had a reply.

      I checked - you can get all three of these on Amazon (but it appears that they must be purchased separately).

      Hi Dave

      The only problem is the actual part of each plant that was used in the trial; root, leaf or flower. I'm tempted at a stab in the dark. Stew the lot up and take some each day.

      From what I've read about most of these herbs is they have supposed anti inflammatory qualities. If that's the case, I've been here before with boswelia, turmeric etc. Maybe this combination is something different.
