Viagra

Viagra Side Effects Law Firm in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Prompted by requests by the Food & Drug Administation (FDA), the label on Viagra packaging now includes warnings of sudden hearing loss associated with taking the erectile dysfunction remedy. The FDA had made the request after it had received almost 30 reports of patients suddenly experiencing hearing loss after taking the drug. Some reported the loss of hearing after two days, others reported the hearing loss within hours of taking Viagra.

It is well known that the majority of men taking Viagra are older, and hearing loss is common with the onset of old age. Typically, when older people lose their hearing, it is a gradual process. In the case of Viagra side effects, the onset of hearing loss was quite the opposite. The FDA reported that hearing loss associated with Viagra included buzzing, ringing, sounds and even dizziness. All reports to the FDA involved hearing loss in at least one ear.

When Viagra was being tested, before release of the drug, a few cases of hearing loss were documented. Because of this, there was a mention on the Viagra label of “deafness” as a possible side effect. By comparison, the newly revised labels have mentioned hearing loss in two sections, one of which advises doctors to warn patients of hearing loss as a possible side effect and the other instructing the patient to seek immediate medical attention if they experience a sudden loss or decrease of hearing or dizziness.

Viagra Also Associated with Blindness

A study was done recently that confirmed a correlation between the use of Viagra and a medical condition called nonarteritic ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION), that can result in permanent blindness. The co-author of the study, Dr. Howard D. Pomeranz states that “For years, we’ve known that a number of men who take Viagra will experience short-term color changes in their vision and see things as green or blue.” The symptoms occurred within 24 hours in all but one patient suffering vision side effects after using Viagra. All of these began with blurred vision, and at least partial loss of vision.
