I developed severe tinnitus at the same time that a number of other autonomic issues were getting much worse. The anti-viral acyclovir greatly reduced both my tinnitus and my severe headaches.

hi CBS do you have to take acyclovir on-going, or was it one course, or what? thanks. I have a really bad case.

Not sure if they coincided or not, but have you noticed any correlation between desmopressin and tinnitus?

I recently saw a commercial for some over the counter medicine that treats tinnitus due to poor circulation. Ofcourse I can't remember the name. I was suprised because I did not know poor circulation to the ear could cause tinnitus.

TY for posting this

I havent tried acyclovir -

Is ringing in the ears common in many of us too

I have a fire truck in my ear all the time. It's almost all in my right ear and I only have 20% hearing in my right ear. I had a hearing aid and that helped some, but not sure why that helped. Lost my hearing aid about 9 months ago which made the tinnitus flare up. I quit Klonopin about 6 months ago and it has become even worse since then. Klonopin was the best thing that I have taken to lessen the tinnitus.

Tinnitis is a diabolical torture for anyone with with a bit of intelligence. I'd rather have cancer, given the choice.
