In the past 1 1/2 year I have lost some hearing in my left ear. My hearing is not good in my right ear due to past problems. My doctor is testing me on Prednisone for 15 days then will taper me off of it to see if it will help. If you have tried this treatment please share with me the outcome good and bad.
Prednisolone or Prednisone belong to a class of steroids called Glucocoritcoids. The efficacy of this treatment depends on many factors. The earlier the treatment is started after the hearing loss the better is the chance of recovery. Also people with hearing loss of lower frequency tend to recover better then those with loss at higher frequency.I have got hearing impairment in both the ears. The left ear has got profound loss. I was not given any steroids for this ear. But after five years when I got hearing loss in the right ear I was given prednisolone and it has helped me in recovering partially. My loss is through out the frequency range. I hope this information is of help to you.
Wish you a speedy recovery
