Roaring or ringing in your ears may mask other sounds and make it difficult to sleep. What can you do to tame tinnitus and hear clearly again? According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.
  • Rest easy with melatonin

    Improve sleep quality and relieve other symptoms of severe tinnitus by taking 3 mg of this natural hormone every night

  • Think zinc

    See a doctor to determine if you are zinc-deficient; if so, taking 90 mg of this essential mineral per day (along with 2 or 3 mg per day of copper) for three months may help

  • Get a checkup

    Visit your healthcare provider to find out if your tinnitus is caused by a treatable medical condition
