Certain Meds Can Damage Your Ears

Hearing loss could be a side effect of your medication. Some diuretics for heart disease, chemotherapies, and antibiotics (especially gentamicin, neomycin, and others in the –mycin family) could damage your ears.

Getting better is probably your first priority, but it’s worth contacting Little Rock Audiology to find out whether the dose is high enough to do damage.
