For those of you greatly bothered by tinnitus I came across this info on the tinnitus talk forum:http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22626945. Appears there was a clinical trial that showed clonazepam helps with tinnitus. In addition, because it is a vestibular suppressant, it also helps with dizziness and vertigo. Yes it is a benzodiazepine and yes it does cause dependence. But, if you need a drug to function, you need it. As my doctor told me, if you needed insulin to function, would you hesitate to take it? The 0.5 mgs of clonazepam used for the clinical trial is a very low dose. I find 0.5 mgs daily helps with the dizziness and vertigo.
