Thread: Amikacin Recalled

    Amikacin Recalled

    Did anyone receive the tainted vials of recalled Amikacin from Tevo Pharmaceuticals this past year? I was one of the lucky ones who received every lot recalled and suffered complications from it. I was curious if anyone else did and if so what type of complications have you had.
    Second question: anyone using long term amikacin IV have issues with hearing loss??

    I'm in Canada and have amikacin here for inhalation . But was not on recall . And yes from repeated IV use of amikacin cousin tobramycin I have sustained severe high frequency hearing loss . It took many years to happen . It didn't happen for a long time . I can't hear high frequency beeps etc and some loss in words . I have hearing aids , but don't wear them much . What happened to you as a result of this tainted amikacin ! I'm sorry to hear this ! Very upsetting.

    Yes, I used this long term which caused complete deafness from it when I was 12 years old. I now have Cochlear Implants.
