      Tinnitus Since:
      August 2014
      Hi all,

      Suspected throat/ tonsil infection, docs think I've grown resistant to penicillin and they want to trial me on some "cefaclor" to see if it can get rid it.

      Is "cefaclor" ototoxic in anyway at all?

      Any answers would be greatly appreciated, I want to start stat so I can eat and drink again :)

      There is a paper titled "Pharmacological drugs inducing ototoxicity, vestibular symptoms and tinnitus: a reasoned and updated guide" (google should find it). It does not list tinnitus as a side effect (though it does list vestibular issues).
