Can you give some explanation why you supplemented with NAC?

What do you experience with your tinnitus is it a ringing sound? Do you have a dull/achy feeling in your ears?

Pfs causes derealization, which is a dissociative disorder. Dissociative drugs cause a similar effect by inhibiting NMDA receptors. NAC, Glycine, D-serine and even DHT according to some research are NMDA receptor agonists that have the inverse action and could possibly help with the situation.
