Combo Therapy May Help Ease 'Ringing in the Ears'

THURSDAY, May 24 (HealthDay News) -- One in five people suffers from tinnitus, the annoying and sometimes severely debilitating condition often referred to as "ringing in the ears," and new research may offer some hope for relief for these patients.

Although the condition currently has no cure, researchers in the Netherlands found that combining two existing therapies may help more than either single therapy alone.

Smouha also pointed out that doctors look for an underlying cause but usually can't find one.

Finding a remedy -- if there is one -- is very much a trial-and-error adventure, Seidman said. Dietary modifications (such as cutting out caffeine or alcohol, herbs including Ginkgo biloba), therapy, and even some drugs (such as anti-anxiety medications to facilitate sleep) may help some patients.

Right now, clinicians often rely on one of two main treatments for tinnitus. One, called "tinnitus retraining therapy," involves exposing the patient to another, more neutral sound to mask the tinnitus, along with counseling.
