Current reports indicate that Tepezza® could potentially result in permanent hearing loss. If you or someone you love has experienced hearing loss after taking Tepezza®, you may have important rights. The makers of Tepezza® failed to warn consumers about the risk of potential hearing loss when taking Tepezza®. This can have major implications for lawsuits and your rights.
The Food & Drug Administration didn’t report hearing loss as one of the side effects of Tepezza® in its initial drug trial snapshot. Initial studies found that Tepezza® was effective in treating eye bulging in Thyroid eye disease patients. According to U.S. Food & Drug Administration in its information on clinical trials, the serious side effects of Tepezza® reported in clinical trials included:
According to the Journal of the Endocrine Society, Phase 2 and 3 Food & Drug Administration studies found that 10% of patients experienced hearing loss. The FDA claimed that hearing loss would be reversible upon discontinuation of the drug. Unfortunately, given recent anecdotal claims, recent studies, and recent lawsuits, Tepezza® may have more serious effects on hearing loss than initially reported and these effects may be permanent. According to a small study published in the Journal of the Endocrine Society 46% of patients who took the drug complained of hearing issues, and 23% of patients experienced hearing loss, with some of these patients not seeing improvement of their symptoms by the end of the study. This indicates that the hearing loss that patients experience after taking Tepezza® could potentially be permanent.
More recent reports represented virtually at the annual meeting of the Endocrine Society found that as many as 65% of patients reported hearing loss or muffled hearing after using Tepezza®. The research, which was conducted by an assistant professor of ophthalmology at the Stanford University School of Medicine found that while Tepezza® is effective in treating thyroid eye disease, one of its real risks is hearing loss.
65% of patients who took Tepezza® reported some form of hearing loss. Symptoms varied, but included:
Other patients experienced new or worsening symptoms and additional hearing loss due to damaged auditory hair in the inner ear. Yet other patients experienced patulous eustachian tube, a condition where the channel that runs from the inner ear and to the back of the nose and throat remains open. This channel normally remains shut. Some patients who experienced this condition after taking Tepezza® and discontinuing the drug experienced some improvement in their symptoms but many patients found that their symptoms didn’t completely disappear.
New studies indicate that the effects of Tepezza® on hearing are still being explored.

According to the World Health Organization the “impacts of hearing loss are broad and can be profound.” People who experience hearing loss can experience social isolation, frustration, and loneliness. Hearing loss can affect quality of life in many ways. People who experience untreated hearing loss can experience greater degrees of anxiety, depression, issues with mental health, and even lower life expectancy.
People may have difficulty following conversations, may experience trouble keeping a job they have or securing work. Hearing loss can also have an impact on self-esteem and confidence. People might not only earn less due to decreased job opportunities, but they may also socially isolate themselves, or experience emotional problems due to being socially isolated.
If you or someone you love suffered hearing loss after taking Tepezza®, you or your loved one might be experiencing a wide range of losses.
