I am hard of hearing (almost complete loss on one side, 50 to 90% loss on the other: this dates back to my early teens).
 
I have the impression that I have lost some hearing (maybe 20%) this year. I did get older (59...) but other than that, the only change is this medication (Cialis/Viagra).
 
It does seem an these drugs MAY cause hearing problems (acknowledged by Pfizer etc).
 
Did any one on this forum note a negative side effect (temporary or permanent) between these drugs and hearing ?
 
TIA

Do they suggest that any hearing loss is temporary ..
One would hate to think it could be permanent..
I know that MY Tinnitis screams..

Sudden decrease or loss of hearing has been rarely reported in people taking PDE5 inhibitors, including VIAGRA. It is not possible to determine whether these events are related directly to the PDE5 inhibitors or to other factors. If you experience sudden decrease or loss of hearing, stop taking VIAGRA and contact a doctor right away.

Hey Steve,

Just wondering if we did go running to our doc/uro claiming some hearing loss after Viagra use, exactly what would they say or do?

Would it be the proverbial exchange: "Doc, it hurts when I do this" -- Doctor: "Well don't do that!" ...

Anyone ever mention any hearing loss to their doc due to Viagra and what did the doc say about it??

Just wondering.

Yeah, Tinnitus .. can't live with it .. can't live without it ... always there -- annoying.

I didn't go running - I called about the nasty headaches the day after taking any of the three pills. And yeppers - he said "Stop doing that" so I did and - no more headaches.
