Do a search on vicodin and heaing loss
to see the articles. Anyway, I did have some measurable hearing loss
from my many years of abuse. I don't know if it was the opiates, but I have hearing loss. Thank Goddess I didn't go deaf, like some people say they have. This info is anecdotal, but it is apparently due to the opiate receptors on the tiny hairs in the ear being damanged, and once they are gone, they can't be repaired.
