Answer

Answer

Various combinations of vitamins or supplements are on the market for tinnitus. Most of these use a combination of antioxidant vitamins or supplements that have been shown to slow age-related hearing loss in animal studies and a few human studies. In addition, melatonin has been used to help with the patients’ insomnia. A combination of antioxidants and melatonin taken nightly may be of benefit in these patients.
