Lots of issues with Citalopram including an INCREASE in depression. It needs new research, it is dispensed far too widely at present.
I have moderate hearing loss, and have been on Citalopram for about 8 years. I have never noticed any effect on my hearing. It might be that due to the depression your anxiety levels are sky high and you're brain is making unnecessary links about the two events. It usually takes depression tablets 3/4 days to completely get into your system and the another 4/5 weeks for the system to settle down with the medication.
Cochlear implant is an electronic medical device that is surgically implanted and that acts as a replacement to the damaged cochlea.This surgery restores the ability to perceive sounds and speech and is done only on persons suffering from severe to profound hearing loss, in cases where hearing aids failed to give any benefit. Cochlear implant is the best option for people with severe sensorineural hearing loss, that is, when there is a damage to the sensory cells in the inner ear.
