Dr. Curhan’s concludes: “Regular use of analgesics, specifically aspirin, NSAIDs, and acetaminophen, might increase the risk of adult hearing loss, particularly in younger individuals. Given the high prevalence of regular analgesic use and health and social implications of hearing impairment, this represents an important public health issue.”
Considering these findings, Dr. Moellendorf advises that it would be better to use aspirin for occasional minor pain control rather than ibuprofen or acetaminophen. For chronic pain control, other alternatives such as Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D should be investigated, along with finding and caring for the underlying cause(s) of the pain.
