side effects of medication

are there any side effects from taking LESCOL or ECOTRIN.
I have read that ecotrin could possibly cause alzheimers.Also could lescol aggravate/cause hearing loss.

Dear Saaida

There are certain medications that could cause hearing loss. The best is to discuss the detail with your General Practioner. I spoke to a few colleagues of mine and we are not aware of any risks to your hearing with these medications. I would recommend that you discuss the side-effects with the professional who prescribed it.

Please let me know if you need any further information

Kind regards
