Smackhead Limbaugh's Hearing Loss May Result From Opiate Addiction

Doctors in L.A. and elsewhere have identified at least 48 cases of deafness tied to prolonged misuse of Vicodin and other comparable prescription medicines.

So far, at least 48 patients have been identified by doctors at the House Ear Institute in Los Angeles and several other medical centers who have treated patients with sudden hearing loss. The hearing problems appear to be limited to people who abuse Vicodin and other chemically comparable prescription drugs by taking exceptionally high dosages for several months or more, doctors said.

Vicodin, one of the most commonly prescribed painkillers, is frequently used improperly."

Vicodin and Oxcontin (Rush's junk of choice) are chemically related synthetic opiates. Rush's maid says she's been delivering to him since 1998.
