      Tinnitus Since:
      I was just wondering if it affected things like Glutamate, GABA, Serotonin, Dopamine, norepinephrine, Histamine, etc. as well as Potassium, Sodium, and Calcium channels. I actually think my tinnitus is louder now than it was before taking them. Maybe this could help me find a way to reduce them if I figure out what the heck is going on.

      Your question is a really hard one.

      In the TRT book by Jastreboff and Hazel you can find a basic introduction in the organization of the auditory system.

      This video gives you a very brief introduction into GABA:
