      Is there any protective drugs/Supplements that you could take before noise exposure? Iv read some about NAC but studies have showed it has no protective effects if not taking in high doses (and at that dose its toxic).
      So is there anny other drugs out there?

      Most obvious supplements I could think of would be magnesium (chelated), melatonin, zinc, co-enzyme q10 and b-vitamins. Whether or not they would be effective, who knows but it's better to be safe than sorry.

      You probably know that the way NAC is thought to work is by enhancing glutathione levels, which is known to be protective against ROS derived damage following noise exposure.

      IV glutathione is a possibility if you can find a nutritional practioner who can administer this for you.

      Glutathione is not an anti convulsant.

      many nutritional drs here in australia do iv glutathione infusions.
