Drugs To Help Tinnitus

Maybe some of you may ask “Are there drugs to help tinnitus?” This is a tricky question. If am going to answer you, I should say, there are certain drugs that can help tinnitus on a certain point, but, there are no drugs that gives a surefire cure for the condition. Most prescription and non prescription drugs for tinnitus provide only temporary relief or none at all. It may even worsen the condition.

Tinnitus is the ringing sensation in the ear without an external source. This means, the ringing in the ear is coming from the inside that only tinnitus sufferer can hear. Most people describe tinnitus as a humming buzzing, whistling sound. Others may feel the noise syncing with their heart beat. The noise beats heard in the ear is known as pulsatile tinnitus.

The sound of pulse heard in the ear can be a cause of chronic inflammation or infection in the middle ear associated by increased blood flow to the inflamed tissue which can be heard in the ear. Another possible cause of pulsating tinnitus is middle ear effusion. This is a result of inflammation, infection or Eustachian tube dysfunction fluid buildup behind the middle ear. The treatment for this condition may be medical or surgical procedure.

There are drugs that are known to relieve the condition to some extent such as anti depressant, antihistamines and anticonvulsants. It may help alleviate the symptom but only for a short period of time and there it goes again… tinnitus is back!

Doctors time and again prescribe drugs as tinnitus treatment that sometimes has even more side effects than relief to the condition. Please be warned of several prescription medications and over the counter drugs that may cause or worsen the present tinnitus. Ask your doctor if the prescription is ototoxic.

Have you tried using natural treatments for tinnitus? If not, I think it’s high time to change medication from drug to homeopathic tinnitus treatment remedies that have helped many tinnitus sufferers around the world. The potent remedies are safe without known side effects, only tinnitus relief.
