Many end up with addiction issues.

I wish that I could rep you 100 times for this post


What we don't need here is exaggerated comments (or prevarications) blowing everything out of proportion.



In OP's (and most sudden hearing loss cases) case, I believe we can easily rule out drugs!

That's why there are some mega million dollar lawsuits against some pharma companies...

"We" can rule out, I'm not ruling that out.

We have reputable professional reference sources on hand to find interactions and adverse effects in seconds


I've listed 2 here before. These are free. all you need to do is sign up. (In a clinical setting we use several others because they also list percentages of reported occurrences


As for hearing loss, drug causation is inconsequential within normal dosage limits



https://reference.medscape.com/


and



Point of Care Medical Applications | Epocrates


Both also have Android and Apple apps that are also free


Drugs.com is more consumer, but still a good source

You should go see a specialist that sounds alarming.

December 2011 I had a 90% loss of hearing in my right ear. I was also having trouble with balance and tinnitus. It took a few months of this and that kind of treatment and by April 2012 my right side hearing was completely gone. I had an MRI. The MRI revealed a small Acoustic Neuroma (google it) that had destroyed the vestibular-cochlear nerves on right side. Meaning the hearing in that ear would never return.


I suggest you find a specialist who knows about Acoustic Neuromas, get yourself an MRI with contrast and see if you have one or not.


Hopefully you don't.
I am so sorry to learn of your A.N. and resulting hearing loss. After a number of years of annual hearing tests and tinnitus (that I usually don't pay attention to, so am seldom bothered by it), my wonderful audiologist suspected there was a chance I might be affected with one myself, and "just in case, to rule out everything," enlisted the otolaryngologist to order an MRI for me. I'm very fortunate that I didn't/don't have an acoustic neuroma, and also very fortunate that my HMO emphasizes preventive healthcare and owns great diagnostic imaging equipment so it's not a hassle, was done right away, and the test didn't cost me anything.

Oh, goodness, you can sue anyone for anything. It doesnít mean your case has merit or will be adjudicated in your favor.

And yet another, ďbut what about?Ē instead of addressing the issue.

Contrary to popular belief, hearing aids do not always help. Severe to profound hearing loss, (which the OP seems to have) is “unaidable.” Also, just because someone wears a hearing aid does not mean that their aided hearing is anywhere near normal.
