What are you emergency remedies to deal with your H?

I have found a remedy that reduces my H by 50 percent.

.5 mg xanax
600 mg neurontin


How about everyone else?

Some people take daily doses of Sulpiride and a wee bit of Lexomil in case of relapse.

My "rescue" cocktail is  1-2 Midrin + 2 Fiorcet(or any butalital combo) + 2-4 mg Zanflex + 1  pure anti histamine to potentiate the effects. 
Then retreat to a quiet room if possible and even better it I can go right to sleep.
The chances of waking up without or reduced ear pain and head pain are greatly reduced.

I am already on 600mg of Nuerontin twice daily.

Yes, its seems Benzo's are very good with helping H. Benzo's and GABA drugs are strickly nerve related medications.

I think this is a good indicator the H is very much so nerve related, to the acoustic nerve.

That's strange about the Gaba, because I have been on it for some time.  Yet if I drop my dose of Doxepin or Topamax, my H comes right back, even though the Gaba dose is unchanged.  The Gaba/Nuerontin seems to have no effect on my H.

Well Topamax directly numbs abnormal neuronal activity in the brian. As the auditory nerve has a root in the brain, it makes sense that it helps you and people with H.

Doxepin blocks histamine receptors in the body and is thought to keep serotonin + noradrenaline in the body for a longer peroid of time.
It is a hormone and a neuro transmitte
r(Basically a signal transmitter). It permits a neuron to pass an electrical or chemical signal to another cell.


A damaged acoustic nerve( cells or neurons damaged from a loud event) is probably transmitting these signals at a lessened or weakened rate. 

Since you use Doxepin, it keeps these hormones in your body longer and probably working overtime, leading to an improved signal transfer in your acoustic nerve.

You natural levels are probably normal, but the nerve is damaged and needs more of it to function properly.

So you have found a solution to the pain and the signal issues you are having with are causing your H.

I think you mentioned taking gaba and alprazolam, both anti- anxiety medications that stop the jumbled signals from the damaged nerves to induce pain.

Its so clear H is a neural problem, for all of us....

Thanks for that info Deafleg.

That really makes sense now why Doxepin and the SSRis seem to work about the same for me.

I don't take any Benzos, my Doc does not like to RX them, much less long term.  He doe not like controlled drugs.
