Hello and hope you are doing well.

If nerve damage is the cause for your tinnitus, its unlikely that niacin will help. For nerve damage medications like amitriptyline or lyrica may help. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
