Tepezza and Hearing

In the January 2024 issue of the journal Ophthalmology, Dr. Jamie Keen and colleagues published a study highlighting a side effect of the medication Tepezza.

Tepezza is advertised on TV for thyroid eye disease.

One of the adverse effects of the medication is that it can adversely affect hearing function. The article warns that it is important to be aware of this side effect and counsel patients about it, which probably should include formal hearing testing.
