... aids is my only choice, I feel I should be compensated
You need to contact an attorney who does pharmaceutical medicine malpractice. (or med mal). You can google "avelox lawyer", and a list of names will come up. This kind of law doesn't have to have an office nearby your home, they will come to you, should they feel that your case has merits. You will have to prove that the avelox caused the hearing loss. Research the different attorneys that you google, don't just pick the first one. Pick the one who best suits your needs. Also, if the first one turns you down, find another. So long as you can prove that this med caused the hearing loss, you will find compensation.
Best wishes to you!!
There was no way of you knowing this, because its not listed in the side effects that you would see. However it is in the prescribing info, altho it says its usually reversible. Your dr and your pharmacist should have known this and told you there was the potetential for it. I feel the drug company is negligent in this too, they knew it and it isn't in the literature for the patient.
