i have been experiencing some unusual sounds which other people say are not heard by them. I started taking anti hypertensives 3 months ago and the condition seems to have occured since then. These sounds occur infrequently and are very disturbing. I have stopped the anti hypertensive medicines since a week. Do i have hyperacusis. Is it a temporary reaction or permenant one to the medicines i took. Please reply. :confused:

  • The effect of loop diuretics on the inner ear can be either temporary or permanent. By taking more than one ototoxic drug at a time, the risk of permanent damage is greater. You may want to consider seeing an ENT. Good luck!
