Clark, please post a link to the published results of the study which links aspirin use to tinnitus.
I just heard about this last weekend, when I was speaking with an MD and two individuals who have rheumatoid arthritis, one of whom volunteered that she takes 18 aspirin a day.
That seemed like a funny number, so I asked: "Why 18?"
Her answer was: "Because if I take 19, my ears start to ring."
Then the MD said: "That's how we adjust the dosage of aspirin for arthritis.. When the ringing starts, you cut back by one, and that's the right dosage."
I guess that's why they call it "practicing" medicine.
