      I have had T since Apr. 1971 while active duty in the Air Force. The only thing that has helped my T is Trans Derm Scopalomine patches. They reduce the volume and intensity of my T. I had 6 glorious months of silence. I have taken lots of antibiotics and the T is back but the patch really quiets it down a lot.

      Hi @Guest48293 ! Welcome to TT.

      Has your tinnitus remained pretty much the same over the past 40 years? It's always a little reassuring to me to talk to people who have had this for a long time and not had it just get worse and worse and worse :)

      I agreed with you. The volume you have /listen is the key. A high level volume it's really hard to cope.

      How did you came about to trying this? It is not even for T. Did someone suggested you try it? Do you have to use them all the time? I am glad it helps you! :)

      An ENT Dr. prescribed the patch for me to deal with vertigo/nausea. Within an hour after putting on the patch I was like OMG! the T is getting softer! I don't wear them unless the T gets really loud. I still have T but for 6 glorious months I had total silence from it while using the patch.
