Nov 15, 2019 · Gout Medication and Hearing loss in Hearing Loss

I have an important question regarding medications recommended to me recently. I have experienced hearing loss from 2 medications in the past,

I've been experiencing a high recurrence of gout. My rheumatologist has recommended that I start a prevention medication. I'm concerned about the ototoxic effect of the medications for gout prevention and your advice and expertise would be greatly appreciated.

There are two classes of drugs recommended for gout prevention. 1) Oxidase inhibitors and / or Uricosurics.
The Oxidase inhibitor that was recommended was Febuxostat. And in the Uricosuric category , Oribakab or Zurampic are recommended.

Please will you suggest which medication may have the least risk for hearing loss or tinnitus?
Thank you very much for your time.
