      i was just remembering that 2 weeks prior I got T I had a bad knee and I was taking ibuprofen daily... If this medicine caused my T is it reversible? Or the damaged is already done... I was a fan of ibuprofen before I knew about T or the Ototoxic facts about ibuprofen... Just wondering

      If you have pains use turmeric as it's great for pain relief. I recommend using NAC or getting trobalt asap as it may help stabilise your condition before it gets worse. Yours may not be permanent, but I'm afraid nobody can say for sure. Good luck.

      I also know ibuprofen depletes you of zinc (an inhibitory neuromodulator?)

      Nsaids aggrevate T. If youre taking the normal dosage once its out it should resolve.
