Did you know that your tinnitus may have been caused by an adverse reaction to an ingredient found in tinnitus medications? This is something that many people do not realize because their doctor prescribed these drugs for them, and their doctor told them they were fine. Unfortunately, the drug was not the only one in the mix. Their tinnitus was still present. Their doctor had not told them that the cause of their tinnitus was a toxic drug in the medication they were taking.
Tinnitus medications, such as those that contain caffeine and/or aspirin, are known to cause side effects. Some of the common effects include drowsiness, nausea, depression, restlessness, and headaches. Researchers back this up with studies showing that CBD has no side effects whatsoever, and that it actually benefits the body’s endorphin system, which is part of the brain’s natural pain-reduction mechanism. The CB1 receptor is located in the head and neck and is responsible for the sensation of happiness. So, if someone experiences chronic tinnitus due to too much stress or anxiety, taking CBD could be beneficial.
Research has shown that both the stress and the anxiety cause a decrease in the amount of endorphins in the body. Since CBD has endorphins in its structure, it will help to reduce stress and increase endorphins, and thereby reduce the symptoms of tinnitus. One of the major benefits of CBD for tinnitus is the fact that it is not addictive, and there are no known health risks to using it. If your doctor prescribes CBD, talk to him or her about possible side effects that may occur, and then talk with your doctor about ways to minimize your risk. You may want to consider all of your options before beginning a long-term treatment with CBD for tinnitus.
