Opioids, usually prescribed for treatment of pain, are controversial because of user dependency issues. Opioids are chemically derived from various alkaloids of raw opium and intended strictly for medical use. Sensorineural hearing loss, a side effect associated with opioid use or abuse, has been linked to profound hearing loss (suddenly, or rapidly progressive), especially in younger individuals. Bilateral hearing loss from long term use of opioids is soaring. Some patients may suffer from tinnitus and vertigo as well as hearing loss. Opioid-related hearing loss is sometimes reversible with the administration of corticosteroids and pentoxifylline. In irreversible cases, however, cochlear implants are required. Visiting a hearing health professional can best determine an effective course of treatment for opioid-related hearing loss.
Our main goal is to help as many people as possible improve their hearing and thus their lives. We hope to help the hearing impaired better enjoy their world through education about healthy choices, the advanced technology available today, and the friendly, compassionate service that has come to be known by. For a knowledgeable understanding of the body’s hearing mechanisms and a deep commitment to knowing what’s available today to help each individual’s hearing loss. If you’d like to make an appointment, please give us a call.
HINT: Globally, it is estimated that about 35 million individuals aged 15-65 years misuse of opioids, making them a major public health concern due to adverse effects on health.
