What? What?

FDA regulators have added "sudden hearing loss" to the list of possible side-effects for erectile-dysfunction drugs. In one-third of the cases, the hearing loss was temporary, but in the rest of the cases the loss is ongoing.

Pfizer and Lilly are defending the safety of their drugs, of course.
