How to Use AudioNotch’s Notched Sound Therapy:

Lidocaine Patch Tinnitus

Written by AudioNotch Team on September 13, 2014


Lidocaine patches are sometimes used for pain analgesia, such as for diabetic neuropathic pain. They can be applied locally to the skin and then diffuse into the affected area. There have been reports that intravenous administration of lidocaine can relieve tinnitus temporarily, but lidocaine isn’t the kind of drug that’s safe to be providing intravenously (hence the suggestion of a local system of administration, like a patch). However, I doubt that the patch would effectively diffuse into the cochlea (and I’m not even sure if the site of action is the cochlea itself or the actual CNS – i.e. the … Continue Reading

A low-level laser beam with wave length of 650 nm and intensity of 5 mW was irradiated to the ear via mastoid bone … Continue Reading

AudioNotch Review & Success Rate Data – One Month and Two Month Surveys

Written by AudioNotch Team on December 20, 2013


For a long time, our users have asked us about the success rate of AudioNotch. And for a long time, we’d told them the truth: we don’t actually have this data, because not enough people respond to our internal surveys about the efficacy of our tinnitus treatment. Basically, a small percentage of our users respond to our automated feedback surveys, which are sent at one and two month intervals after purchase. So really, we only have a partial understanding of the data on our actual success rate.

However, we believe in allowing users to make an informed decision about whether to purchase a … Continue Reading

Brought to you by AudioNotch, the leading Tinnitus Treatment program worldwide:

In Evidence Based Medicine, there exists a hierarchy of evidence. This means that the higher a particular treatment is in the hierarchy, the more likely it is to actually be effective in real life. As you go higher and higher in the hierarchy, from lower quality evidence to higher quality evidence, you can be more sure that a therapy is truly effective.

Categories: Tinnitus

Brought to you by AudioNotch, the leading Tinnitus Treatment program worldwide:

Medical implants that offer a targeted drug delivery to the ear are a possible therapeutic model for treating tinnitus. The US department of defense is funding one such study that uses an implant to deliver a drug in a targeted manner:
To address the problem, the U.S. Department of Defense has commissioned Draper Laboratory in Cambridge, Mass., to spend the next year fleshing out a concept for a small delivery device inserted near the membrane-covered window—no more than three millimeters in diameter—separating the … Continue Reading
