This can vary greatly between different patients. While some users report significant results within the first two weeks – or even the first few days – of treatment, typically results are seen between 2-4 months of regular use. For best results apply therapy regularly as described in your user manual while relaxing.
Any unusual change in symptoms can be a sign that the therapy is starting to work. This might include a change in tinnitus pitch or intensity, or short periods of time when your tinnitus is quieter or absent. In some cases, relief can be very gradual, so you may not notice it immediately.
You can adjust the number and duration of your treatments according to your schedule, though you should try as far as possible to maintain regular therapies. Don’t worry if you miss a few sessions. Just try to return to a regular schedule as soon as you can. You can still expect results with shorter or less frequent treatments, but progress may be a little slower.
Because tinnitus can be triggered by so many different factors such as health, stress or medication, a future recurrence is not impossible but it is certainly not inevitable and relief should be long term. If you know what caused your tinnitus or made it worse, your doctor or audiologist will be able to advise you on how to minimise your exposure to potential triggers, and on what other action you can take to reduce the chances of your tinnitus recurring. Some users who have seen success with Sono choose to continue using it on a reduced ‘maintenance’ schedule to reduce the chances of their tinnitus recurring, or for related benefits such as improved sleep and relaxation.
Once symptoms start to subside, you can gradually reduce the length and frequency of your therapies. If your tinnitus has subsided enough for you to consider ceasing therapy completely, consider keeping hold of your Sono device in case stress, medication or other factors ever cause a future recurrence. Some users choose to continue therapy even after their tinnitus has reduced or disappeared for relaxation and sleep or ‘maintenance’ therapy.
For a small number of users, the sudden stimulation can cause mild early effects such as headache or muscle ache, which should resolve within 2-10 days as treatment continues. Starting your therapy at the 5-minute setting and building it up slowly as recommended in the user manual should minimize the chance of any such effects.
No adverse events have been recorded for the application of pulsed electromagnetic stimulation for tinnitus, so you should not experience serious discomfort. If you have any symptoms of concern, please stop using Sono immediately and contact your doctor to rule out other causes.
A small minority of users may experience temporary aggravation due to the sudden stimulation, resolving within a few days as treatment continues. To ensure a comfortable start for all users, you are recommended to start using Sono at 5-minute settings and build up slowly to the 20-minute setting over a period of 2-3 weeks to avoid the likelihood of any discomfort.
If you are ever concerned about any changes in your tinnitus condition, please consult your doctor to rule out other causes.
