Gentamicin Poisoning Symptoms
Physicians may not attend to the signs of Gentamicin poisoning in the elderly, believing the cause of symptoms to be age. Symptoms of Gentamicin poisoning include:
- Loss of balance, vertigo
- Vision problems (oscillopsia)
- Memory loss
- Concentration problems
- Ringing sound in your ears (tinnitus)
Dangerous Effects of Gentamicin
Gentamicin may be harmless when used sparingly. However, Gentamicin is a very potent antibiotic that, when used inappropriately, could damage an individual’s inner ear function. Even with many other antibiotic options available, some doctors prescribe Gentamicin frequently and for long term use. Our medical negligence lawyers protect the rights of injured patients.
