Viagra associated with hearing loss

by Madison Park
CNNhealth.com writer/producer

Oh Viagra.

Sure, Pfizer’s wonder pill has side effects such as headaches, facial flushing, upset stomach, erections lasting more than four hours, bluish or sudden loss of vision.  There’s one more risk to the pill that grants erections: Hearing loss.

Research published this week in Archives of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery showed an association between long-term hearing loss and Viagra.

This side effect is already acknowledged by Viagra - especially after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration forced this labeling changes for oral erectile dysfunction medicines known as PDE5 inhibitors in 2007.

The research conducted at the University of Alabama at Birmingham looked into the data based on 11,525 men.  Men who self-reported hearing problems were twice more likely to indicate that they used erectile dysfunction medication.

While it’s difficult to establish cause and effect in an observational study, these findings  indicate that the FDA labeling was warranted, said study author Gerald McGwin, a professor of epidemiology at the UAB School of Public Health, in a taped news release.

The association was present for long-term hearing loss after using Viagra, and to a lesser extent other ED drugs such as Cialis and Levitra.  The sample sizes for the two latter drugs were smaller.

Since Viagra increases blood flow to the penis, perhaps the drug increases blood flow to the ear causing damage, McGwin hypothesized.

    The use of impotence drug Viagra and the risk of side effects were similar in hearing health. Recent reports in Britain said that the virility drug is associated with hundreds of cases of hearing loss among the People of Adam.

    There seem to be a lot of uses for Viagra. A new preliminary report suggests that the active ingredient in Viagra, sildenafil, could reduce the size of large growths that can disfigure the bodies of children. The findings could point to yet another use for the medicine, which was first developed as a heart medication until researchers noticed that it helped impotent men have erections. This time, researchers stumbled upon an alternate use while using a Viagra-like drug to treat a rare condition that causes high blood pressure in the arteries that lead to the lungs. There are caveats: The treatment is very expensive, the research is only in its early stages, and the medication may not be a cure. Still, the research raises the prospect that "we could treat some of these little kids who have little or no hope," said report dermatology and pediatrics at http://www.maxpharm.co.uk/viagra

    Есть мнение, что если неотвратимо чего-то желается, то фортуна обязательно тебе улыбнётся. Лишь нужно выполнить одно обязательное условие – просто дать ей такую возможность. Вениамин Олегович, наш помощник шефа, действительное тому доказательство.

    Он уже года два жаждал сменить свою старенькую тачку на что-нибудь поновее, потому что и на дам впечатление производит, и положение повышает, и головной боли меньше. Это намерение было просто его назойливой мыслью. И представьте, в один вечер он просто выиграл в Интернет-казино zerorelax.com необходимую сумму и сразу смог сменить авто. Так вот прикидываю, а может надо и мне попытаться – и никуда идти не нужно, и бабла можно выиграть, и вечер хорошо провести.
