Our goal was to attempt to establish neuropharmacological tinnitus control (i.e., relief) with medication directed to restoration of a deficiency in the gamma-aminobutyric acid-benzodiazepine-chloride receptor in tinnitus patients with a diagnosis of a predominantly central type tinnitus. [...] Key Method Thirty tinnitus patients completed a medical audiological tinnitus patient protocol and brain magnetic resonance imaging and single-photon emission computed tomography of brain.Expand
Gabapentin and tinnitus relief.

  • Medicine
  • The international tinnitus journal
  • 2008
TLDR
GP, a drug designed originally as a supplement for seizure control, was considered for those SIT patients in whom objective evidence of abnormal electrical and metabolic brain activity was identified. Expand
Gabapentin effectiveness on the sensation of subjective idiopathic tinnitus: a pilot study
TLDR
There was not a significant subjective improvement in tinnitus annoyance for the patients (37%) versus controls (42%) and comparison between the results before and after intervention for patients and controls showed no significant differences (P > 0.05). Expand
Short-Term Effect of Gabapentin on Subjective Tinnitus in Acoustic Trauma Patients
TLDR
This double-blind, randomized clinical trial concludes that gabapentin 300 mg bid for 6 weeks is an effective treatment for acoustic tinnitus and the placebo effect in relievingTinnitus is remarkable. Expand
Principles of tinnitology: tinnitus diagnosis and treatment a tinnitus-targeted therapy.
TLDR
The ongoing clinical application of a rationale based on principles of diagnosis and treatment for SIT, which has evolved from the TTT clinical experience in SIT patients, continues to result in long-term tinnitus relief. Expand

  • Otology & neurotology : official publication of the American Otological Society, American Neurotology Society [and] European Academy of Otology and Neurotology
  • 2011
TLDR
This article provides valuable data demonstrating a placebo-controlled tinnitus reduction after clonazepam and Deanxit intake, respecting a double-blind placebo- controlled approach for Deanxit in a crossover setup. Expand
Pharmacotherapy for severe, disabling, subjective, idiopathic tinnitus: 2005-2006.
TLDR
A tinnitus-targeted therapy (TTT), a combined treatment of medication and instrumentation focusing on pharmacotherapy that contributes to the development of a new discipline, tinnitology, an integrated multidiscipline of basic science, neuroscience, and clinical medicine attempting to understand an aberrant auditory phenomenon, unrelated to an external source of sound, and how it becomes transformed into one of affect. Expand
Benzodiazepines and GABAergics in treating severe disabling tinnitus of predominantly cochlear origin.
TLDR
Addition of GABAergic to benzodiazepine drugs does not modify the treatment results in SDT of a predominantly cochlear origin, and statistically significant improvement is found in comparing groups 2 and 3 with group 1 but found no significant difference when groups2 and 3 were compared. Expand
Treatment Response of Modified Tinnitus Retraining Therapy with Medical Therapy in the Patients with Tinnitus
TLDR
Modified TRT, in addition to medical therapy, should be considered to increase the therapeutic response in patients with sensorineural tinnitus. Expand
Increased metabolic activity and hysteretic enhanced GABAA receptor binding in a rat model of salicylate-induced tinnitus
TLDR
Findings indicate that enhanced neural activity in the auditory and limbic system may contribute to the development of tinnitus, while the hysteretic increase of GABAA receptor binding in specific areas of the CNS may be a compensation for hyperactivity, which may be involved in tinnitis relieving. Expand
Central nervous system neurodegeneration and tinnitus: a clinical experience. Part I: Diagnosis.
TLDR
The identification of neurodegenerative CNS disease in a selected cohort of patients with subjective idiopathic tinnitus as a soft sign of such CNS disease has implications for diagnosis and treatment. Expand

Benzodiazepine receptor deficiency and tinnitus.
TLDR
Preliminary results of diminished benzodiazepine-binding sites in the medial temporal cortex of all patients with severe tinnitus are revealed, a finding that is consistent with the hypothesis implicating GABAergic mechanisms in the pathophysiology of the disorder. Expand

Decreased GABAA-receptor clustering results in enhanced anxiety and a bias for threat cues
TLDR
The γ2+/– mice represent a model of anxiety characterized by harm avoidance behavior and an explicit memory bias for threat cues, resulting in heightened sensitivity to negative associations. Expand
Bridging the cleft at GABA synapses in the brain
TLDR
Recent findings have started to unravel the operation of central GABA synapses where inhibitory events appear to result from the synchronous opening of only tens of GABAA receptors activated by a saturating concentration of GABA. Expand

TLDR
This review discusses the most recent findings in the rapidly expanding field of GABA(B) receptor research, and includes a summary of all splice variants of both receptor subunits identified to date. Expand
Generating diversity at GAB Aergic synapses
TLDR
GA-mediated transmission is characterized by high variability of synaptic responses, and factors that determine synaptic GABA transients in the cleft, including diffusion and the actions of GABA transporters are investigated. Expand
