I was recently on a course of z-pac for a chest condition that wouldn't resolve itself.  It was my first time on antibiotics since 2002. 

 

Anyway, I have in the last week and a half since coming off the antibiotics experienced what I would describe as profound hearing loss and have constant tinnitis.

 

Has this happened to anyone? I can only assume this was caused by the antibiotics.

 

 Can anyone point me in a natural vitamin/mineral direction for this? 

 

I am 20 weeks pregnant fwiw.

 

Thanks

Emily

Have you brought this to the attention of your midwaife or health care provider???  I would NOT try to self-prescribe/dose with any supplements (especially by unknown persons on the internet), given your pregnancy.

 

I would guess that your tinnitus has more to do with your infection than to the treatment,and it may be that either your infection spread beyond your chest or is still active.

 

Call your healthcare provider.
