    Thanks, Caroline. My appointment in July is with Dr. Noel, however, I didn’t know he had the Otologist designation. He’s the same doc’ I saw fifteen years ago when Tinnitus attacked. He is known as an inner ear specialist and when my GP and I went over the shortlist, he was the best option.

    The link you mentioned ... ‘best doctors’ ... is, well, more like a personality contest. “His receptionist was a real bitch, so I’ll never see him again”. A website possibly constructed by someone with too much time on her/his hands.

    Anyway, thanks for exchange of ideas, Caroline.

    It sounds as though you will be in knowledgable hands and that is always a step forward over a regular ENT :)

    Good luck in July!

    hey there backlite, did you get adverse reactions with Triazide? what's the scientific name for the medicine?

    I think that's what I am taking, doesn't seem to help that much...although I am taking a lower dose since I had bad reaction to another diuretic before

    The only reactions I got were: dry mouth, more solid and dry stools than usual (more pushing to get them out) and a bit of sun/wind burn. These are all expected effects as the fluids and salt leave your body.

    My prescription was: 30 TAB Apo-Triazide 50/25mg (Triamterene/Hydrochlorothiazide 50/25mg. (I don’t know what 50/25mg means. I will as my pharmacist).

    I took one tablet a day for 30 days (along with Betahistine). I don’t expect to take it again unless Meniere’s strikes.
