In brief: Yes
If it is listed on insert, then its possible, but is medical equivalent of being hit by lightning, very rare.

In brief: Yes
Viagra, cialis, levitra, (vardenafil) and staxyn all have a very small, but real risk of sudden hearing loss - just read the package inserts for each medication.
This information was added in 2007. In addition, a recent study suggests that viagra may lead to small, incremental losses of hearing over time. It is unknown if there is any direct causation by the medications.

There are several side effects to viagra (sildenafil) that include headaches, flushing of the face, and possible lowering of the blood pressure.
There may also be visual changes. However, deafness is not associated with viagra (sildenafil).
