      Thanks for your reply. I started taking NAC and magnesium, I want to try turmeric but I don't know if I can mix those two. Read online not to mix and some say it’s fine. Hard choices.

      Vitamin D, and all the others, DHA, omega-3,magnesium.

      And now I am on a cortisone treatment for few weeks.

      Also I gave up alcohol during Xmas, that was extremely good thing for my health.

      You were prescribed cortisone? For your tinnitus?

      Yes. Last night I had the most silent night in 2 weeks. Don't know if it's the cortisone or not, anyway I felt better.

      I was taking tumeric with the ACV. I also had vertigo and recently diagnosed with BPPV. Doc urged me to go off the tumeric as it can cause dizziness. YMMV.

      About 2 weeks. It has gotten better during that time.

      I just experienced BPPV for the first time and it really freaked me out. I don't know if any of my supplements may have caused it but it has gone away (knock on wood).

      Highly doubtful it was caused by supplements. It's generally caused by concussion or jolt to the head. Crystals get loosened in the gel and go where they shouldn't. The brain interprets this as an imbalance when there isn't any. How did you determine it's BPPV? A therapist or concussion doctor does an examine, in various positions and then scopes your eye to determine if there are loose crystals. It's not possible to self diagnose BPPV on one's own, only a guess at best.

      Right.

      I got vertigo because I did something in my sleep and maybe I did something regarding my positioning. I woke up with everything spinning. It wouldn't be from taking certain supplements, I don't think so.

      Two teaspoons of ACV in 8 ounces of water flavoured with honey 2-3 times a day. Make sure it says "Mother" on the label, otherwise it's filtered and pasteurized and won't work.

      That's what happened to me. Had a concussion on Jan. 21st., stayed up a couple of hours to make sure everything was okay, and woke at 3am to a spinning room. Wasn't taking any supplements at the time so they defiintly were not the cause. However, when I stop to think about was dizzy a couple of times before the concussion back in Dec. when I had a bad head cold. So maybe the concussion just aggravated an existing condition. The T. did not start until Feb 7th...

      I take mine shortly after eating. Some posts say with food, some without. Don't think I could drink it on an empty stomach. There is a big thread on here about it, just search for apple cider vinegar.

      I used to add a tablespoon to a glass of water. But now I just add 1-3 tablespoons to food. I don't know whether it is doing anything for my T, but it tastes good. :)

      Too much information and so many different opinions. I wish that this forum could have the ability to vote for supplements. That could show which supplement is in favor of majority of people.
      I read almost all the posts of this thread. Personally I am on Magnesium, Zinc and B complex. The first two are more effective. I just ordered Melatonin, Niacin (No flush) and Vitamin B12 based on your opinions. Thank you guys.

      I wouldn't leave out nicotinamide riboside if I was you. Search for the thread. Good stuff.

      I was listening to an ear piece loudly and the person that I was listening to hit a high note. Tinnitus began soon afer. I have had it ringing for 2 years. I recently found "The Butterfly Campain". It has Noni Juice that increases Nitric Oxide in the body. Also, it has wild alaskan blueberries that has the highest antioxidents, and the most impotant it has wild alaskan salmon fish oil that has won the Monde Selection Award twice. When I am taking "The Butterfly Campain", the tinnitus is down by 50%. The harshness of tinnitus is down by 90%. This is amazing for me.

      Why does it have to say that on the label? Does it work better on your tinnitus?

      Yes... and should be consumed with copious amounts of Mongolian food.

      Nudge... nudge... wink wink.

      I have been reading about different supplements I might try to relieve my tinnitus. I am looking for advice on what I should take, what quantities, and what brands / quality are recommended.

      I am currently trying magnesium. I bought less expensive Walmart Jamieson brand High Potency Magnesium + D3. Will that suffice?

      I have read I should try N-Acetylcysteine 1200 mg.

      Perhaps some Curcumin as an anti inflammatory.

      I am in Canada. I went to a health food stores and the prices were crazy for some items. The NAC was $18 for 100 of 600 mg pills to $72 for 60 of 600 mg pills. I asked about the price differences and the woman told me "We don't discuss price." "A pair of jeans at one store might cost more at a different store..." WTF?

      Are the Jamieson brand and Natural Factors brand good enough or do I need to drop $300 on a few bottles of vitamins?

      Thanks.
