ototoxic? Mind elaborating on this to one who has had Tinnitus since childhood and just realized how great silence is, if only temporarily.

   Hi;

   I suppose you've had a very minor hearing loss since childhood; maybe ven born with it for some reason.

   Ototoxic medications have a high affinity for the middle and inner ear. ASA, aspirin, adds insult to pre-existing injury.
