Some Pain-reliving Medicines Linked to Hearing Loss

Full article at: Popular Pain-relieving Medicines Linked to Hearing Loss in Women

Excerpt:
“According to a new study by researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), women who took ibuprofen or acetaminophen two or more days per week had an increased risk of hearing loss. The more often a woman took either of these medications, the higher her risk for hearing loss. Also, the link between these medicines and hearing loss tended to be greater in women younger than 50 years old, especially for those who took ibuprofen six or more days per week.

There was no association between aspirin use and hearing loss.

The study will be published in the September 15, 2012 issue of the American Journal of Epidemiology.”
