Thread: Does Penicillin affect your hearing?

  1. Default Does Penicillin affect your hearing

    Hey there!
    I am taking penicillin for a chest infection (for past 5days) and previous to this infection I also had the flu. The past 3 days, my hearing has been affected by something (penicillin?). Things sound really 'muffled' at times?
    Any Idea if penicillin affects hearing?

    Thanks!


  2. it is much more likely that you still have some sort of virus and it is in your sinuses now, causing a lack of drainage from your ears by blocking the eustacian tubes which causes muffled hearing. antibiotics like penicillin do NOT treat viral infections, they only work on bacterial infections.

    There's a report of sudden hearing loss but that's after administration of intramuscular penicillin. Experts presume that the incidence is some kind of immediate hypersensitivity (type I) allergic drug reaction.
