      Just TRU Niagen. I have Astaxanthin in the drawer but since the Niagen seemed to be working I didn't want to muddy the waters.

      A few weeks. Keep in mind I noticed no improvement in tinnitus but music sounded a bit fuller. The effect plateaued as well. I believe @Artazanasss had the same experience as me.

      Will you be taking the 300mg of TRU?

      Anything else? I’ve had the stuff but haven’t taken any yet

      I take 600mg but FGG might be taken 900 from what I’ve read. 500-600mg seems to be effective dosage. I have not noticed any side effects at 600mg. The only thing is that its probably the most expensive supplement I have taken and I don’t know which brand is the best one.

      As far as supplements just Astaxanthin and NAD+. I also take Acyclovir because I have consistently high Epstein Barr titers and it was suggested it may help with my vestibular migraines (it made a huge difference there actually). Nothing else.

      Accoustic Trauma
      Hello everyone. First of all sorry for my English.

      Due to this thread I have been taking daily in the morning during more or less 2 weeks 300mg of Nicotinamide Riboside alongside 500mg of Resveratrol from Life Extension.

      I can say that my tinnitus from acoustic trauma has been reduced. It was before 8, now is 6 or 5.

      I will keep taking it several months. If no further improvements I will think about continuing, changing of brand or increase the dose.

      Me and a group of friends affected by tinnitus have created a Whatsapp group in order to track our experience with Astaxanthin. We are going to start our intake in the upcoming days.

      We've chosen the product attached in the picture. We'd love to hear any tips or advice about dosage or if we should take it along any other supplement.

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Loud Noise Exposure
      I took NAD+ and I experienced no improvement in my tinnitus with it. However, I took a hearing test about 3 weeks after my trauma which showed an obvious 15-20 dB at 4000 Hz and 3 months after my trauma I was at 5 dB. And this was confirmed by several hearing exams. I began taking NAD about a month after my trauma, so again I don't know if it was natural healing, but I no longer have the noise notch I did 3 weeks in thank God.

      My audiologist at 3 weeks told me the notch would not improve at all and the only thing I could do was prevent it from getting worse. I think NAD+ must have helped a little.

      How much did you take a day? I've started with 300mg but considering upping it to 600 despite the high cost. I started taking it 2.5 months outside my trauma. Hoping to see some improvement on my next audiogram. Wish I'd started taking it sooner.

      I'm interested in starting this regimen! How have all our success stories gone? I'm trying to find out what the best combo of dosage is.

      Looking at Tru Niagen NR at the moment. It's expensive but they all are! I was thinking of getting one month's worth to see how that goes first- or do I need a longer time to see if it is effective? I'll just go with Tru Niagen's dosage of 1 300mg tablet a day.

      I'll add in Reservatrol. Just a standard 200mg from iHerb.

      I'm looking for anything that might reverse hyperacusis and as a bonus hopefully tinnitus.

      Has anyone had their hyperacusis get worse after starting NAD+, Astaxanthin, and Resveratrol?

      This would be the correct thread to talk about this, wouldn’t it?

      Anyway, thanks for the help.

      Hi!

      I have been on these three for one month and a half now. I had no previous hyperacusis and still don't have it. I am having more good days since I started taking them but it could also be because of the antidepressant I am taking (escitalopram) or my booze intake due to some f*ck fool eating a half cooked bat in the other side of the planet then me having to be locked down with me, myself and I. Who knows?

      Has your hyperacusis worsened taking them?

      Yes, my hyperacusis got worse after starting NAD+ 600mg, Resveratrol 1000mg (a single pill from the brand I’m taking) and astaxinthin at 12mg every other day.

      I was trying to do what some have done in this thread. I never had success with supplements (not worse, just no affect) before and I guess I shouldn’t have started 3 different ones at once.

      Usually the worst affects from supplements for me is that I can’t spell them. :)

      And yes, I’m not a fan of China right now either.

      Nothing wrong with China in my opinion. I was just joking in that comment but that's another discussion.

      Have anything else changed in your life that could have triggered the worsening? Maybe it is not supplements related.

      No, one is a neurotransmitter and one is a drug for nerve pain.

      @Momme - No; GABA is an amino acid, which also serves as a calming neurotransmitter. -- Gabapentin is a drug, I assume one that somehow works on GABA receptors in the brain. I've read of instances where people taking Gabapentin experienced spikes in their tinnitus. Others have pretty severe neurological reactions to it. I can't imagine that I'd ever seriously consider taking it.

      @FGG do you take GABA and does it help you? It's a really interesting supplement.

      No I don't and i would not because the short term relief would not be worth the potential for long term worsening to me. But you will see a lot of different opinions on here about that.

      That being said GABA supplements are probably less harmful than drugs that act on the GABA receptor but I'm not aware of any long term studies.

      I've got hold of some NR by Life Extension (it has NR licensed by Chromadex); 4 bottles of the 100mg capsules as they don't ship 300mg here.

      Is it worth taking only 100mg a day or should I double or even triple up? How long should I give it before I know if it's doing anything? Any particular time of the day I should take this, and should it be with food/fat or just water?

      Eventually I want to stack it with astaxanthin, 4-6mg a day to start with.

      Hi! I started taking 100mg Life Extension NAD. Then jumped to 300mg + Resveratrol capsules which by the way aren't available on their website at the moment. They've also risen the price from 39€ to 49€... Don't know why. I paired them with 4mg Astaxanthin. Always had them both in the morning after eating a banana and along my daily 15mg Escitalopram doses. Then another 4mg Astaxanthin in the evening.

      Have they helped me? Difficult to say as there's an antidepressant in the mix but I have felt better the last weeks. Tinnitus somewhat more bearable. No suicidal thoughts. Now and for the last 4 days I'm going through a really rough patch and coincidentally it has started since I ran out of NAD. I also had 10mg Tadalafil last Friday to have a sexy weekend. Who knows what has made what? This condition SUCKS and we need help NOW.

      The price is pretty steep that's for sure. Maybe 300mg is still too low, but going to say 600mg would be expensive. Astaxanthin is more reasonably priced. That said if they work it would be money well spent.

      I currently take Resveratrol 200 mg and Nicotinamide Riboside 250 mg for less than a month. Is it worth to add Astaxanthin? Did you have benefits from it?
