      Hi Kazz

      You could try melatonin. You can get quick acting ones (mine are 3mg) which dissolve in the mouth and also slow release types which will work to keep you asleep during the night.

      Also try to keep any anxious thoughts away while you are trying to fall asleep by bringing your focus back to your breathing and let the thoughts go.

      When T is new and the ringing is causing much anxiety and panic causing loss of sleep, it is advisable to get masking ASAP so you won’t be so anxious and fearful. Stress and anxiety are toxic to T. So try masking if you haven’t done so. Here is a TT thread with an audio player for many good masking sounds. It also comes with nice tips for new sufferers . There are also links to ATA & BTA with loads of more info. The more you understand tinnitus and how it works, the less fearful and stressful you are and which is good for T.

      Melatonin. Therapeutic range (as a sleep aid) is about 5 to 10 mg.
