      Does ototoxic drugs when taken over a period of time effect the overall hearing or is it certain frequencies or both. To me it makes more sense that it would effect overall hearing...Any thoughts

      I wouldn't take them at all...There's a possibility that you can damage the other ear and get tinnitus in both ears, also could get worse in the one you already have tinnitus in.
