A study is underway in New Zealand to determine the curing abilities of MDMA on tinnitus. The research has been conducted over the course of the past two years and has involved the concept of micro-dosing.
Those participating in the study have stated that after three hours they felt partial relief from tinnitus, but a huge placebo effect has also been recorded after 30mg or 70mg of the drug was administered during two separate trials.
The study has been carried out by the University of Auckland and the University of Otago. Both were inspired by independent reports stating that the euphoria inciting drug had had a positive impact on their tinnitus. More funding is required if research is to be continued and research is currently being carried out on brain images in order to determine if they should continue their studies.
