In brief: Yes
Aminoglycosides are antibiotics that are usually given through an IV for serious infections.
These medications may be life saving but carry the potential for toxic effects to the inner ear. This can result in hearing loss or balance difficulty. Monitoring the blood level of the drugs can help reduce these risks but does not completely eliminate them.
