Over the last 40 years, there have been many over-the-counter tinnitus treatments that have come and gone. Most have provided very little benefit, as there is no magic cure all for tinnitus. Others were more or less over-priced multivitamins that provided the same vitamins most people already get in their daily diet.
Lipo-Flavonoid Plus would definitely fall in the second category as it contains the same vitamins most of us already get in our food every day. These include Vitamin C, B-1, B-2, B-6, B-12, niacin and calcium. While certain studies have shown that these vitamins can be beneficial to inner ear health, Lipo-Flavonoid Plus only has a 22% efficacy rate at suppressing the symptoms of tinnitus.
22% Efficacy Rate vs Tinnitus Control’s 87%
While 22% is a decent efficacy ratio for suppressing tinnitus symptoms, it’s far lower than the 87% efficacy rate that patients on Tinnitus Control experience. The reason for this is that Tinnitus Control is not a multi-vitamin, but instead contains a proprietary blend of arnica, chininum sulphuricum, ferrum metallicum, kali phosphoricum, natrum sulphuricum, pulsatilla, silicea, thiosinaminum, garlic and ginkgo biloba. These ingredients work together in a way that Lipo-Flavonoid can not, to successfully suppress the ringing, buzzing, whooshing and whistling sound that so many patients experience.

Lipo-Flavonoid Plus Side Effects
Some of the side effects I’ve heard patients complain of are high blood pressure, nausea and constipation, but considering that Lipo-Flavonoid is mostly just a multi-vitamin, in all likelihood it was not Lipo-Flavonoid that was directly causing these side-effects.
Existing patients have pointed out to me that Lipo-Flavonoid Plus has some glowing reviews online, to which I always have to point out that there are just as many negative reviews and just as many neutral reviews. And while I am a proponent of vitamins, I don’t think consumers should have to pay $90 for a multivitamin that is only worth $15, just because it’s packaged and marketed to people that suffer from tinnitus.
