Fresno California's Hear for Life Hearing Aid Centers Publishes Warnings about Medications that Lead to Hearing Loss
Date:12/31/2013

Fresno, CA (PRWEB) December 31, 2013

Ototoxic medications are drugs, whether prescription or over-the-counter (OTC), that are toxic to the ears. You can find more than 200 recognized ototoxic medications that are regularly used according to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASLHA). As a way to make it simpler for consumers to identify the possible ototoxic medications and drugs in their home, the Hearing Aid Dispensers at Hear for Life Hearing Aid Centers published Watch for Hearing Damage from these Medications: The Ototoxic List. Doug Hall's article is adapted from information provided by the clinical audiologists at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and the Ototoxic Medications page of WebMD.com and highlights five classes of medications

Salicylates – Salicylates are commonly found in common pain relievers such as aspirin and in aspirin-containing medications. Hearing loss and tinnitus can be caused by high daily doses of medications containing salicylates.

Loop Diuretics – These are often used in the management of certain kidney conditions, heart failure, and high blood pressure.

NSAIDs – Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, often abbreviated NSAIDs, can result in temporary tinnitus and hearing loss in large quantities.

Aminoglycoside Antibiotics – Aminoglycoside antibiotics are used in the treatment of bacterial infections. The free radicals produced by these medications can lead to inner ear damage.

Chemotherapy Drugs – Irreversible hearing damage has been noted in many cancer treatment drugs, such as carboplatin, cyclophosphamide, cisplatin and bleomycin.

Any person struggling hearing problems in Fresno is urged to contact the hearing health care professionals at Hear for Life Hearing Aid Centers. Drugs are just one of many contributing factors hearing loss. A thorough hearing test and examination of the ear is needed to figure out the precise cause of each person's hearing loss.
