      Yeah, that's completely understandable. I'm not even adverse to the idea myself if it'll help, but I did have concerns about possible interactions between the two (or overdosing, since they both result in the same thing at the end of the day).

      Please do share if you come across any noticeable benefit by taking both. It might even be worth experimenting if you do see an increase to see if just NMN might be helpful.

      I wonder how much of this is just placebo. I'm willing to give it a shot since I have both tinnitus and hyperacusis, but am definitely skeptical.

      I'm about to start it too. I hope it helps. At this point, I don't care if it's a placebo if I can feel better.

      How is Nicotinamide Riboside in comparison with NAC? Both are supposed to prevent hearing loss?

      I was taking NAC for about 2 months. I ran out and not sure if I should buy more, or if I should switch to Nicotinamide Riboside?

      Just having information overload with everything and feeling like I'm throwing money away.

      From what I understand, the two aren't mutually exclusive. If you are financially able and weren't experiencing any bad side effects from the NAC, you may want to consider continuing with it. Supplements often take weeks or longer to show effectiveness, and as NAC itself can be protective, perhaps it's not something you'll even directly notice.
      I definitely emphasize with you on the information overload and fear that money is being thrown away, since there is almost no consistency to whether or not supplements will help someone or another. I like to think at the very least they may still help in other areas beyond reducing the symptom directly, but you never know. These are the risks you have to consider when there's nothing approved on market.

      The recommended serving size - not sure off the top of my head but it's in both links.

      So:

      - 1 cap of 300 mg Tru Niagen per day
      - 2 to 8 capsules per day for the NMN (every capsule has 125mg)

      Yes, 2 for the latter.

      Should you go this route, I would consider looking into the addition of Resveratrol as well with the Tru Niagen. There have been several people mentioning how it is a useful cofactor, but of course there's nothing conclusive and many people who apparently benefit from just the Tru Niagen.

      This is partly why I am considering Thorne's ResveraCel as it has both the Tru Niagen compound, Resveratrol, and some other compounds.

      I have already been doing Resveratrol + Tru Niagen combo for almost 4 months. Nothing really groundbreaking to report.

      Same, I used Thorne for 4 months prior to this. My tinnitus calmed down and went lower in tone, but I don’t think it had anything to do with NR - I still have terrible days as well, though some good ones in the mix too.

      Probably 95% of the time my EEEE is absent and now I have 2 tones, a low wawawawa noise, and a tss/tch metallic noise. Even though they are lower pitched, on bad days I can still hear them everywhere.

      I've officially taken it for 6 months. No significant change if any.

      I recently listened to a lecture by Dr. David Sinclair, an Australian biologist and geneticist, on the unrelated topic of cell renewal and was quite surprised to find two of the supplements mentioned by him (NMN and Resveratrol - in addition to Metformin) mentioned here, too.

      Thinking about it, though, it does make sense that if something that assists in the renewal of cells might have a positive impact on whatever might be the actual cause of tinnitus.

      Without the additional information of NMN and Resveratrol might being something worth looking into in regard to tinnitus I already decided to give give both supplements a try. And knowing what I know now, I'm looking forward to seeing whether they will improve my tinnitus as well.

      Trying Resveratol that comes in a combo with Turmeric and Ginkgo, will report anything significant. So far I'm worse.

      I’ve been taking Tru Niagen and Resveratrol for a month now and while a month isn’t all that long, so far I haven’t noticed any difference. If anything I’ve gotten more new noises, not that I think any supplements are to blame.

      Normally I’d try it out a little longer but if I’m being honest the Tru Niagen is a little too pricey for my taste for that.

      Might be the Ginkgo. I have seen it reported here to worsen some people's tinnitus.

      I'm strongly considering trying this as someone who's a month into noise induced tinnitus. I'm mid-20s which generally seems to be too young to really benefit from NAD+, but based on some accounts previously mentioned in this thread, if Nicotinamide Riboside can possibly promote or accelerate the ear's natural healing processes, I think it might be worth a shot.

      @Heinrich_S7
      @Kste Adams

      Heinrich and Kste in particular reported some really encouraging results early on, and I'd love to hear from them again about their current progress, though it's been some time since they've last posted which I pray means they've moved on to greener pastures -- pastures devoid of tinnitus and its ilk.

      Worst case scenario I gain a little bit hope at the cost of a little lost money.
