treating tinnitus with dyazide (diuretics)


back to the TINNITUS HOMEPAGE

Dyazide  (a diuretic) was prescribed for me by a physician, as a treatment for my tinnitus.

it didn't help -- I took it the full 2 weeks. initially, i took 1 Dyazide capsule in the morning,  which my ENT upped to 2 Dyazide capsules.

the Dyazide didn't effect my tinnitus whatsoever. niacin and neurontin made my tinnitus far worse -- only temporarily, thank goodness. (i'll write more about those other experiences, as soon as I can.)

various drugs -- including diuretics -- are rumored to help with treatment of tinnitus. Effectiveness is widely variable -- dyazide may help one persons tinnitus, & make another tinnitus sufferer worse. (Its' more likely to have no effect, than it is to worsen your T.)

some other meds and diuretics are oto-toxic, which means they can CAUSE or WORSEN tinnitus.

diuretics are medicines that help reduce the amount of water in the body. there are loop diuretics  (named for the loop-shaped part of the kidneys where diuretics have their effect).  And there potassium-sparing diuretics.

Dyazide is the most common diuretic prescribed in the management of tinnitus.

As noted, it didn't help me at all. If you have had a different experience with Dyazide -- or, any diuretic -- affecting your tinnitus of hearing condition, please email me, so I can collect further data on the issue.

furosemide, a very potent diuretic, has a side effect of INDUCING tinnitus, as well as temporary hearing loss.

but, when given in reduced doses to 37 tinnitus-sufferers, HALF of them reported improvement.

in other words, medication treatment for tinnitus can be complicated, as well as dose-related, etc.
