Hearing Aid Dispensers at Contra Costa Hearing Aid Center in Walnut Creek Educate Consumers about Everyday Drugs that Contribute to Hearing Loss
Date:12/31/2013

Walnut Creek, CA (PRWEB) December 31, 2013

Ototoxic medications are drugs, either doctor-prescribed or over-the-counter (OTC), that are harmful to ears. The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association advises that there are more than two hundred known ototoxic medications. Look Out for Hearing Loss from these Everyday Drugs and Medications: The Ototoxic List by the Hearing Aid Dispensers at Contra Costa Hearing Aid Center simplifies and condenses the data about common ototoxic drugs and medications. Contra Costa Hearing Aid Center's report focuses on 5 classes of drugs and medications.

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

Salicylates – Salicylates are chemicals in aspirin – one of the more widely used heart disease treatments and pain reliever. In doses of eight or more tablets per day, salicylates are known to contribute to hearing loss and tinnitus.

Loop Diuretics - Heart failure, high blood pressure, and some kidney conditions are often treated with Loop diuretics. These medications have been shown to cause hearing loss and tinnitus, which is sometimes only discovered during a hearing test.

Aminoglycoside Antibiotics – Used to treat bacterial infections, these drugs produce free radicals, which result in damage to the inner ear.

Chemotherapy Drugs – Cancer treatment drugs can cause irreversible ear damage.

Anyone experiencing hearing difficulties in Walnut Creek is encouraged to talk with the hearing care professionals at Contra Costa Hearing Aid Center. Medications are just one of many contributors to hearing difficulties. A comprehensive hearing test and examination of the ear is necessary to determine the precise root cause of each person's hearing loss.
