Is there anyone here with tinnitus and how have psychedelics affected it? Does it get louder or quit for you while tripping? I haven't tripped since I developed it about 18 months ago. It gets louder when I smoke bud which has been a serious downer because I used to love smoking but recently I'm sort of getting used to it and is bothering me less. I've noticed it almost goes away completely on MDMA which have been great experiences if only for that reason. Curious about anyone else's experience with this hearing condition.

I have tinnitus (the type of tingling quiet "noise" mostly "audible" when higher frequency sounds are absent, like when in quiet or listening to music that gets a lowpass filter effect at some point or only bassline without hihats is playing, and so on.) Learned to live with it great so not complaining, just taking care of not worsening it from now on.

Anyways, it was not caused by psychedelics and I have not noticed any type of psychedelics I tried ever affecting it. I have however noticed caffeine increasing it temporaily, if I take more than say two cups a day. Also nicotine seems to make it slightly less, but that might be just because of the relaxing effect. Weed and psychedelics - no change momentarily or long term. Also it doesn't seem to make aural hallucinations and synesthesia (visual to aural) any worse, they actually blend together somewhat nicely and it's one of the times I actually like listening to it with everything turned down in a room. I haven't tried mdma with it in quiet, but I think I will, with my last pill some time soon and will try to remember report here.

What I thought might be interesting to try is DIPT, but it's really rare thing to obtain and I'm afraid if it might actually do something permanent. What I'd definately stay out of is any natural or synthetic drug, medical or recreational, that has tinnitus listed even in the rare side effects. It includes medicines like some antibiotics and viagra. Not that I'd need viagra, but I'd rather abstain than make hearing worse at old age.

Tinnitus is a serious downer, I can basically only drink a few beers. Anything else makes my anxiety jittery as hell, especially the herb. I don't feel like doing any drug, and I hope I will be able to cope with it in the future.

Well after today I can answer about the MDMA part of this question. The level of tinnitus did not change around and during the "trip", but it became as easy to dismiss as for example visual snow in dark room is pretty unintrustive normally. I think as chemical it doesn't have interaction but as somewhat therapeutic drug (look at MAPS for example) it might have potential in accepting and overcoming tinnitus as annoyance if it's new to you and really stressing out most days.
