    If your doctor recommends using Debrox, run out of his office. I cannot hear now and the ringing is louder than ever. The worst product on the market, with no warning about this side effect. My head feels like it's underwater and I can't hear. I called my doctor, who never told me this might happen, and he says it is normal and just use it in one ear. Are you kidding!!!!!

    Do not use this product if you have migraines with any kind of ear involvement. I tried using these drops twice in one day on my left ear. Neither time was effective at removing the wax, and the second dose caused burning in the ear canal. The night after I used it, I woke up in the middle of the night with severe pain on the left side of my face and pain in my left ear. It felt like someone was s ... Show Full Comment

    Works great for blocked ears if it is wax. If I do not see wax I know it's fluid and buy swimmers ear to dry it out. Tired of going to ENT's when there is great products like this to help me hear well and unclog my ears.

    Worked like a champ! Classic clogged ear due to wax buildup. Used DeBrox for 2 days. First day, 4 drops in ear. Second, 10 drops in ear and lied down on my side for 15 minutes. I could heard the product working with the crackling sound right away. Afterwards, I used a medication syringe with warm water. After about 2 glasses of water I start seeing results and could hear again. Thanks DeBrox, you ... Show Full Comment

    I have had earwax buildup issues since I was a little girl, and this product has been the only thing that has worked, outside of a doctor's ear cleaning. As long as you read and follow the instructions, you shouldn't have a problem. If you have a preexisting infection, this product will exacerbate it, which is why it states to not use if there is pain, etc...
