      Hi jeannie -

      There are a number of anecdotal reports of people whose tinnitus has abated or at least decreased in intensity with the use of a transderm scop patch - but those reports are really sporadic. Back in 1999 I tried it on five on my patients in succession, and none improved at all. But that said, there really are relatively few side effects. The lady who had vision problems probably did not wash her hands thoroughly after applying the patch - and then she inadvertently touched her eye. That's a no no. The vision problems thus encountered are temporary - but they are nevertheless unpleasant.
