Prolonged or Excessive Use of Gentamicin or Tobramycin Can Cause Ototoxicity

Gentamicin and Tobramycin are effective and powerful antibiotics administered in hospitals and nursing homes to combat severe infections. Because they have serious, well-documented side effects, their use requires close attention to length of treatment, dosing and monitoring.  Extended use or excessive dosages can result in irreversible damage to the inner ear, leaving patients permanently injured and unable to engage in normal activities.  These damages include permanent loss of hearing and vertigo and other balance issues.
