Curious if anybody has had any tinnitus resolution with the use of rapamycin. I took rapamycin for about four months, then discontinued for four months, and just restarted. Stopped because of herpes on lip. Previously I had refractory tinnitus which seem to lessen with the first round of rapamycin, and then recurrent when I was off. I just recently restarted at 4 mg then 6 mg per week, and planning to end up at 10mg q10 days. Amazingly, tinnitus has has almost totally resolved once again. N of 1 but convincing so far.
Glad for you. I have slight tinnitus in my right ear, and moderate tinnitus in my left ear. I have had this since childhood. Exposure to noise? I have had many benefits from rapamycin but unfortunately this isn’t one of them.
I also have a trauma induced tinnitus in left ear and a slight tinnitus in my right ear, most likely from loud music on headphones.
I am 1 month in my treatment and no improvement whatsoever. I don’t expect anything to happen in my trauma left ear tinnitus anyway.
No improvement here either. On rapa one year; 5-6mg/wk. Had tinnitus for years. 77 y.o.
Several years I’ve been taking rapa and absolutely no change in my tinnitus.
FYI, not convinced rapamycin and tinnitus relief connected. Tinnitus back, seems more correlated w sleep quality than rapamycin. Just don’t want people to add tinnitus to rapamycin benefits. I want to be as transparent as possible in this setting, and I don’t want to mislead others. False benefits in the long run will hurt us all.
I noticed bilateral high-frequency white noise that started about the same time that I began 6 mg once a week rapamycin 2 1/2 months ago. I have no idea what the cause is. Has anyone else experienced anything similar? I only recently connected the two.
Rap user for five weeks. Have had tinnitus for the last five years. Can’t say that rap made it worse, but it’s definitely not better, so far.
I think of it as being perpetually camped near a pond, with thousands of chirping crickets.
My tinnitus was unbearable and now I rarely notice it
