      I’m starting rosuvastatin so I of course looked up any ototoxic effects.

      I actually found a study that claims it helps hearing and subjective tinnitus. I didn’t expect to see this. In other places this med is listed as being ototoxic.

      Does anybody have any experience with this drug making things worse?

      I’m taking a 5mg dose. That’s half of the lowest dose they gave in the study.

      I’ll link the study. I’d like to hear some thoughts. Thanks.

      How’s it going with your experiment, and how are things going post accident at work? You better? Hope so.
