In brief: No specific cure yet

There is no specific cure yet for tinnitus, however, it is important to make sure the tinnitus is not being caused by an acoustic nerve tumor. Additionally, one needs to keep the blood pressure under good control, and to make sure the tinnitus is not being caused by one's medications.
Some reports show benefit with melatonin and acoustic therapy, but this is very preliminary information.
