Hi doctor,

I have mild tinnitus effect. Continuous multi-frequency unreal sound coming in both ears and sometimes one particular tone become loud (tolerable) and lasts for 5-10 seconds and again goes to same state. I mean I have continuous mild ringing and sometime some tone becomes loud and again reset to same state. Audiogram does not show significant hearing loss. All frequency response falls near to normal, but with ringing effect sometime it gets difficult to recognize checkup tone during test. I can recognize the beep tone to almost all range in test.

ENT specialist told to take Ginkgo biloba and told I have to live with it lifetime. Tinnex IV, Tinnex capsule and Tinnex ear spray launched by Lincoln pharma claims to ease or treat tinnitus, the ringing sound. I would like to know how useful are these for treating this? I have tinnitus and only heard by myself. I did brain MRI and angio head, both came out to be normal. I was on antidepressants for almost four years, but now not taking any medications. Kindly advice whether I can try Tinnex products. Is there any side effects? Please suggest.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Yes, tinnitus is a difficult condition to treat. Generally originates from hair cells in inner ear. If all investigations are normal, then various medicines can be tried.

Tinnex (Caroverine) or Tinnicar 20 mg twice a day for 15 days followed by 40 mg twice a day can be used for three months.

Injections are also effective if oral medications not giving good results.

Keep doing breathing exercises and control your sugar if at all you are diabetic.

Listen to music for 15 minutes especially at night time such as instrumental music that have a masking effect.

Whatever you do, 10-20% of times tinnitus does not improve. However, it is not life-threatening and Caroverine (Tinnex) can be tried. Thanks.
