He's 3 hours away, should I have him go to the ER?
Expert:  Dr. G replied 5 months ago.
The hearing loss can be a side effect of narcotocs which I have never personally observed, the itching is much more common. I think it is very important for him to stop the Vicodin and get formally evaluated in the ER to be sure there isn't another cause for the sudden loss.
Expert:  Dr. G replied 5 months ago.
Be sure that he does not drive himself to the ER since he is on narcotics and is having side effects as well
