Just a quick note here. There are now 47 cases of "suspected" patients going deaf from taking erectile dysfunction drugs like Viagra, Cialis and Levitra. The study in the journal The Laryngoscope says:
There is increasing evidence that PDE-5 inhibitors may induce sensorineural hearing loss via plausible physiological mechanisms. There needs to be more awareness of this disabling side effect among healthcare professionals responsible for prescribing this drug.
More awareness? Out of the millions and millions of guys taking this drug there have been 47 cases and the authors want an awareness campaign? Talk about sensationalism. Here is the bigger question, out of those 47 men who went deaf, how many are really upset that they don't have to hear their wives nag at them anymore? (That is a joke and I am going to get in a lot of trouble from my wife for that one).
