    Re: what is lipo-flavanoid

    Lipoflavonoid is an over-the-counter nutrient formula to help combat tinnitus. It has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for this purpose, but has been shown to improve blood circulation in the inner ear canal in at least one medical study - which concluded that Lipoflavonoid provides a beneficial effect for patients suffering from tinnitus. Many ear, nose and throat specialists recommend Lipo-Flavonoid for patients who suffer from tinnitus.

    Good luck ... S

    Re: what is lipo-flavanoid

    When I woke up one morning with tinnitus I thought it was just a temporary ear problem that would just go away in time. After a month of absolutely No sleep, loss of appetite, and honestly, I thought I had no future. I dragged myself to a ENT who checked my hearing and said I was fine, Big Help!. He told me I was one of 40 million people that just have to live with tinnitus.
    He did tell me to try & stick with Lipo-Flavonoid for a least 6 months to see if it would help. I have been taking it for a year now along with 120mg of Ginko Biloba daily. The ringing-hiss is still there but to a much lesser tolerable degree. I am having many good days now that I didn't think would be possible a year ago. I do credit the lipo...
    Also, I was paying $30.00 a bottle for the Lipo-Flavonoid but it finally came out in a generic form. At $8.00 for a bottle of 100, ask your pharmacist for "Cholinoid". Same ingredients.

    Wink Re: what is lipo-flavanoid

    I know what you mean by "loosing your mind"! Believe me, I've been there.. It gets better,,,Trust me. My first two months as a tinnitus sufferer I don't think I slept more then 1/2 hour a night. I had a short fuse and drove everyone nuts.. It s**ks when no one understands what you are going through. I tried every "Guaranteed Cure" that I could find via Google search, All garbage. Stick it out with the lipo & 120 mg of ginko a day. It took me a good 6 months until I started getting my life back. 15 months of being a tinnitus sufferer I can tell you now that all I have is a little backround hiss, and thats only when I listen for it.. I don't know if it was the lipo, or just the fact that your mind learns to put up with the noise and buries it in the backround where you don't pay attention to it any more. Give it time, trust me.... You will get through it.

    Re: what is lipo-flavanoid

    My husband has tinnitus ..He has had it now about 3 weeks..I talked to the pharmacist at Wal-Mart..She recommended lipo-flavanoid.He has been taking it now a couple of days...The ringing is unbearable and adding no sleep. He is a mess.It sounds simple when you say ringing, but nothing has stopped it, Nor can he block it out..Topping it off with NO sleep ....Gene is a wreck....Because of his sleep apnea if they give him some thing for sleep their afraid he'd choke..He has stopped using the C-Pack...We were thinking maybe the C-Pack caused the the ringing...Has any one found a way to be able to get sleep through all this? Thanks much SympleTymes

    My husband has had tinnitus for many years. I read about lipo-flavanoid and had him begin taking it. After a month he ran out and said it didn't stop the ringing. A week later his asked me to buy him more lipo-flavanoid as he realized after "getting out from under it" it had greatly reduced his tinnitus. This is a man who rarely thinks any supplement will work. I highly recommend trying the lipo-flavonoid and staying with it for several weeks before you discount its possbile help. Best of luck with it.

    Re: what is lipo-flavanoid

    My doctor suggested that I take lipflavonoids for labrynthitis. I don't have ringing in my ears so I am not sure that it is really doing anything. I don't really see a difference in my symptoms. At first I thought it was working but now I am not so sure. Anyway lipoflavonoids has the lemon biflavonoid as one of it's ingredients. Thanks for the tip about the generic brand because they are expensive! For the tinnitus sufferers I have a suggestion. My dad has had tinnitus for 11 years now. He was not able to sleep with it either because when it's quiet he hears it the most. So now he sleeps with a machine that makes ocean noises to drown out the ringing and he sleeps great. I imagine a fan would work the same. It may take a little bit to get use to but I think it would be more relaxing then the ringing. Hope that helps someone.
