aspirin hearing loss lawsuit

The results of an ongoing research study published to the American Journal of Epidemiology by widely respected doctors: Brian M. Lin, Sharon G. Curhan, Molin Wang, Roland Eavey, Konstantina M. Stankovic and Gary C. Curhan, submit that researchers have found links between certain over the counter drugs such as Aspirin, acetaminophen and nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs commonly known as NSAIDs and side effects directly associated with hearing loss in women.

The research was derived from data provided by nurses enrolled with the ongoing cohort study known as NHS I and NHS substudy Conservation of Hearing Study (CHEARS), which investigated factors associated with loss of hearing in participating female nurses.

Researchers focused on over the counter drugs known as aspirins such as Anacin by Insight Pharmaceuticals of Langhoren, Pennsylvania, Bufferin by Dr. Reddy's Laboratories Ltd. of Hyderabad, India, Midol by Bayer AG of Leverkusen, Germany, and Alka-Seltzer by Bayer AG of Leverkusen, Germany, Acetaminophen such as Tylenol by McNeil Consumer Healthcare, Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, and other antiinflammatory medications such as Ibuprofen, Naprosyn by Atnahs Pharma of London, United Kingdom, and Advil by Pfizer of Groton, Connecticut.

By researching hearing loss, reported by the nurses, and their use of these over the counter drugs, research doctors ascertained the link between hearing loss in women and regular use of Aspirins, NSAIDs and other over the counter non prescription drugs.

Based on evaluation, interpretation and investigation of this study, Do I Have A Lawsuit agrees with those findings by these research doctors as they are published, in stating that extended or longer use durations of Aspirin, NSAID and acetaminophen were correlated with higher risk of hearing loss in women of the study who used these over the counter drugs 2 or more times per week as indicated by study data.

Women who used these drugs less than 2 days per week did not indicate any increased risk of hearing loss.

While research continues, Do I Have A Lawsuit recommends our readers and community members consult their doctors and request specific information as it relates to you and loved ones about specific risks and benefits of any OTC or prescription drug.

Do I Have A Lawsuit will continue to monitor and research drug side effects and immediately notify our readers of any hearing loss lawsuit filed or initiated by our staff or affiliated attorneys

Health Care Lawsuit The Obamacare Lawsuits Explained


Court Rejects Obamacare Lawsuit Challenging Contraceptive Coverage Provision

Healthcare Reform Obamacare Lawsuit ExplainedOn July 17, 2012, a Nebraska federal court dismissed a lawsuit filed by seven states challenging contraception coverage requirements in the federal health care law. Judge Warren Urbom of Lincoln tossed out the federal lawsuit on the ground that the plaintiffs did not have the standing to file a lawsuit seeking to block the part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). The Republican-dominated administrations in seven states, Nebraska, Florida, South Carolina, Michigan, Texas, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Texas, along with co-plaintiffs, a nun, a missionary, and three Nebraska-based church-affiliated institutions, the Catholic Mutual Relief Society of America, Pius X High School, and Catholic Social Services had challenged the contraception rule on the ground that it was against their religious liberties.

The act, popularly known as Obamacare, is a brainchild of President Barack Obama and seeks to extend affordable health care benefits to all U.S. citizens. The President signed the bill into law on March 23, 2012, following a series of considerations by the Congress for over a year. The United States Supreme Court upheld the health care overhaul law on June 28, 2012.

The Health and Human Services mandate under the Affordability Care Act makes contraception coverage a part of all health care plans, including those for employees working in institutions affiliated to religious bodies. The Catholic Church that runs hospitals, schools, and outreach programs strongly opposes the use of birth control measures. These religious bodies argued before the court that the challenged part of the act was a violation of their rights to reject contraceptives and abortion-causing drugs for women.
