Medications and Hearing Loss

Evidence shows that certain prescribed medications can cause hearing loss of varying degrees, including profound hearing loss. Some of the medicines that may affect hearing include oxycontin, an opiate used for pain management, and antibiotics, such as streptomycin, neomycin, or kanamycin, used to treat infections. Also on the list are  taking large amounts of aspirin, diuretics such as Lasix or ethacrynic acid, often prescribed for patients with congestive heart failure, and some drugs administered while undergoing chemotherapy to treat cancers.  Hearing professionals can determine if diminished hearing is a result of side effects of these medicines.  They can consult with the patient’s other medical professionals to determine alternative treatment plans and hearing enhancement options, such as hearing aids or devices. 

Put your  mind at ease by putting your hearing future in the hands of a caring professional. Once a hearing test uncovers a hearing impairment, it is the job of the hearing aid specialist to find the perfect match between patient and remedy. He or she will take into consideration all the many factors that can affect the successful treatment of  hearing loss, including medications, noise, trauma, illness, and  aging. Let us do what we do best—call on ABSOLUTE HEARING SOLUTIONS for comprehensive testing, experienced evaluations, custom fittings, quality hearing products, and follow-up care. 

P.S. Medications that cause hearing loss are called ototoxic medicines.
