    I've heard several shooters say that they were looking for alternate or new treatments for tinnitus. Merz is a German pharmaceutical company that is looking for U.S. recruits for a Neramexane clinical trial. The link above is for those of you who might be intersted in joining the study.

    Keep in mind that this is a new drug and that there could be unknown safety issues. I am not involved with this company in any way, and am not advocating that you join the study. I am just posting it because my aunt has tinnitus and sent this to me, and I thought I would pass it on.

    Hey, Jack. I hope it helps. Keep us all posted on the results if you join. I know a lot of shooters that are looking for a treatment that works.

    The drug being tested for Tinnitus is Neramexane. It may also treat Alzheimer's disease. It is similar to Namenda. Interesting that I've never had an Alzheimer patient complain of tinnitus; I guess they forgot to mention it (LOL).

    The US Military is running trials as well in Iraq on prevention of hearing loss due to gun and bomb blasts. No results yet posted. AJ

    I registered for the study & got a reply that I wasn't eligible. Don't know if I lived too far away or what but was turned down.

    I did the same with the same results. I was just wondering why...but they don't bother telling you.

    Recurvy, looking at the time you were posting on line, you really need more sleep.

    Are you guys still planning on going to the South West Grand? AJ

    Hi, AJ...

    It's my hip...really hurts lately. I'm having it replaced as soon as I possibly can, but I'm in the middle of a job search at this time. It will have to wait for a while.

    I don't know about the SW Grand. We would really like to go, but Martin has been extremely busy with his business this year, and his mom and uncle are both having age-related health issues. I'll let you know if we discover a way to make it, though.

    We will definitely see you at the Grand!

    That makes it worth trying to get there. I'll talk with Martin tonight and give you a call tomorrow. It's GOTTA be better than living like this...
