How should I use this medicine?

This medicine is only for use in the outer ear canal. Follow the directions carefully. Wash hands before and after use. The solution may be warmed by holding the bottle in the hand for 1 to 2 minutes. Lie with the affected ear facing upward. Place the proper number of drops into the ear canal. After the drops are instilled, remain lying with the affected ear upward for 5 minutes to help the drops stay in the ear canal. A cotton ball may be gently inserted at the ear opening for no longer than 5 to 10 minutes to ensure retention. Repeat, if necessary, for the opposite ear. Do not touch the tip of the dropper to the ear, fingertips, or other surface. Do not rinse the dropper after use. Keep container tightly closed.

Talk to your pediatrician regarding the use of this medicine in children. While this drug may be used in children as young as 12 years for selected conditions, precautions do apply.

What if I miss a dose?

If you miss a dose, use it as soon as you can. If it is almost time for your next dose, use only that dose. Do not use double or extra doses.

What may interact with this medicine?

Interactions are not expected. Do not use any other ear products without asking your doctor or health care professional.
