> > > I am taking down all the names of the drugs you mentioned, and am going to that mental health site to start my own research. Thay way, I will be well-armed with info of my own when I next see my neuro doc. It's really true; we have to help ourselves as much as possible. The medical community just can't or won't keep up with all the advances in their areas. I feel hopeful for the first time in a long time. Thanks a million, Deb.

The 1st two pages of an infoseek search had organizations that specialize in tinnitus and give info on all kinds of treatment, from drugs to devices similar to hearing aids to specialized counseling. A very recent report I noticed claims a definite link between the auditory part of the brain and the emotional part, supporting the theory that tinnitus and emotional disorders are related.

I could never find it again, and forgot the name of the drug, until I saw it listed on one of the infoseek search sites. I think it's over-the-counter. Anyway, there sure are a lot more options than I ever knew.

Thanks Jan! I'm going to check with my pharmacist tomorrow to see if ginko biloba is contraindicated with any of my meds. Wouldn't that be wonderful; to have something I can pick up right out of the vitamin/supplements section that might help lessen this awful noise? John has been so nice doing all that research, you people never cease to amaze me with your kindness and readiness to help others. I have tried meclizine on occassion for balance problems (darn brain tumor acting up again!) but didn't notice a difference in my noise level. Anyway, thanks again for this lead, I'm definitely going to check it out. Best to you, Deb.
