Tens of millions of Americans have suffered for years with a hearing condition called Tinnitus. For those of you who know the symptoms, but do not know the name; Tinnitus is the medical name for that noise you are hearing when there is no logical reason to be hearing a noise.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Tinnitus Talk is the best forum on the internet for the latest updates in Tinnitus research and news.

What makes this forum good? In short, it has a couple of advantages:

  • Site design: some of the older tinnitus forums are based off of another platform, and as such, there’s no overarching design to the actual forum site. Other tinnitus forums have poor, un-intuitive nagivation interfaces that simply don’t work well. They’re ugly to look at, and function poorly.
  • The team behind it: the Tinnitus Talk team is knowledgable, capable, and … Continue Reading

Categories: Uncategorized

Memantine is an NMDA channel blocker and is undergoing intense research to determine if it has high potential for treating tinnitus through pharmacological solutions. Research is studying the effect of memantine on NMDA currents that impact neurotransmissions and is evaluating the impact of memantine on the auditory brainstem response.
