Talk about a rush of blood to the head. According to The Telegraph, forty-seven men have reported cases of sensorineural hearing loss (the rapid loss of hearing in one or both ears), allegedly linked to Viagra, or other erection-enhancing drugs like Cialis or Levitra. So far users in Britain, America, East Asia, and Australia have reported hearing loss claims.

Doctors from several British hospitals are so alarmed by these claims that they've called for an investigation across multiple continents. While these cases are insanely rare, and yet to be scientifically proven, it just seems like one of the many potential unwanted side effects of the pills, like headaches, blurred vision, and lumpy pants.
