    Can plaquenil cause loss of hearing


    In the last six months my hearing in my good ear (I'm deaf in the left) has gotten worse in 7 out of 9 frequencies. At this rate I'll be completly deaf in a few years. It seems my current meds aren't doing the job but I hate to go to something stronger. Just out of curousity do you live in the mountains (as your screen name implies) If so, do you live in Colorado? I am not in the mountains but live on the front range, just outside of Boulder. I see the rheumy next week and I'm wondering if he's going to change my meds (Imuran and Plaquenil). No one know for sure if the deafness in my left ear is from the lupus, but with the right ear going now, I need to get as much info as I can. I haven;t heard much about hearing loss in lupus, so I looked it up. Lupylisa Hearing loss is more strongly associated with Sjogren's than with lupus or RA, but can happen.

    Hearing Loss is #70 concern in Plaquenil discussions. Plaquenil is an arthritis medication and an anti infectious agent. Uses Plaquenil is prescribed for Lupus, RA, Sjogren's Syndrome and Joint Pain and is mostly mentioned together with these indications. I haven't heard of Plaquenil causing this side effect before either. I have slight hearing loss for my age, probably caused by many years on Plaquenil or chloroquine. I have come across a few people with the same. I wonder if Mepacrine would be a suitable alternative. Audiometry test showed moderate to severe neuronal hearing loss and reduced speech recognition in both ears of the patient. With suspicion of hydroxychloroquine-induced hearing loss, this drug was discontinued. After 2 months of hydroxychloroquine discontinuation, his audiometry findings were improved.

    Because I have Sjogren's my rheumatologist thought it was more likely the disease than the medication, and kept me on Plaquenil, but others may have a different response. Any information and personal experiences you can share are welcome. I recall that Plaquenil is associated with hearing loss so your doc has to consider whether it's (a) totally unrelated to either, (b) related to your lupus, (c) related to your medications, or (d) a combination of both.
