For an ENT medical professional: My ENT physician has me taking Lipo-Flavonoid for ringing in the ears--it does nothing--I tried it for 6 months. Is there anthing new that might help?

Hello,

mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

mysticdoc :

You should get checked for hearing loss, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
A MRI of the brain also should be ordered to rule out any tumors and stroke in the brain.
Hearing aid often resolves the issue if this is hearing loss related.
Tinnitus retraining therapy with masking devices also helps the problem.
Ginkgo biloba supplements may be used as it helps some individuals.
vitamin E supplements 400 mg daily also may be tried.
