What pill?: I am pretty up to date on all things going on with ear nose and throat. I know nothing of a "hearing loss pill". If you have information about such a thing i'd be interested in reading about it. As i know however no such thing exists.

No: Presbysusis is the hearing loss associated with aging. there are at least 4 types according to the late Dr. Harold F. Shuknecht. The pathology may be in the sensory hair cells, the nerve fibers and the vascular strip that secretes fluid into the inner ear. There is no such thing as a hearing loss pill. And certainly no pill for permanent hearing loss due to the degenerative changes in the ear
