1. Aspirin
Aspirin-induced temporary hearing loss is normally associated with large doses, or 8 to 12 pills per day.
“Naturally, if a patient self-administers too high of a dose [of aspirin] not advised by their physician, the risk of hearing loss and other side effects increases,” said Dr. Campbell.
The effect is typically reversible once the patient reduces the frequency of their aspirin intake or stops taking the drug altogether.
