    I'm about halfway through a bottle of these now and they seem to have made a slight difference in the amount of tinnitus I've had over the years. Has anybody else out there tried them?

    That said, of course, nothing beats proper earplug use!

    Thanks for the tip. Have given up practicing with headphones because the tinnitus keeps me up at nights.

    It's a pain, aint it!

    True, but there are a few things to avoid. Caffeine, alcohol and sodium are known to trigger Tinnitus.
    Not easy.

    Hello to all of those who have posted. I found that, for me, the lipoflavinoids did not help much. This video, however, was very helpful:



    I found out about it from this site:

    Welcome to American Tinnitus Association | American Tinnitus Association


    The idea is to retrain your brain and cancel out the offending frequencies.

    Another thing I did was to go to an ENT with an Audiologist onsite to have my hearing evaluated. I have some upper end damage but all in all it's not too bad for a 62 year old man.

    He went through any prescriptions that I was taking and found that some of them could also contribute to the the Tinnitus just like the aforementioned caffeine and alcohol. Even things like TMJ can trigger it was well.

    Finally he reminded me to always wear good earplugs while playing loud music!
