      There is a guy on the visual snow subreddit who will be part of the study with Dr. Tsang. I will keep Tinnitus Talk updated as soon as I find out the results.

      Seems unlikely that visual snow could improve much based on the methods, but stranger things have happened.

      This is a case of a guy who was diagnosed with visual snow after a car accident and was successfully treated with amitriptyline. The conclusion was that the issues were being caused by pituitary fatigue and amitriptyline is used to treat this often in diabetics. This could have implications for reducing or eliminating visual snow and tinnitus in some people.

      I wonder if after a period of time amitriptyline would be able to be tapered off assuming brain chemistry returns to normal.
