I have had clogged ears for a week and decided it was an ear wax problem. I tried the product and my ears became completely full and my hearing decreased. I can't even pop my ear.

Please don't use this unless you prefer having muff ... Show Full Comment

After finding hardened wax in my ear during my yearly check-up, my doctor prescribed this. I took it once and my ear totally clogged up. I had a pain in my ear. I immediately went to have the wax removed, which she did, but my ear is still clogged up terribly . At least I am no longer in pai.

It was somewhat painful and it didn't get all the blockage out. So ... Show Full Comment

I had wax build up in my ear, but could hear 100%. My doctor recommended I use Debrox ear drops. After the first use, my ear felt clogged and I felt I ringing inside my ear and I lost some hearing. I called my doctor's office and a spoke to a nurse who told me keep using it, it will get better. After four days of using it twice a day, 5 drops each time, the clogged feeling is still there and b ... Show Full Comment

I put them in alone with no one in my house and was terrified after putting in the drops. The intense pain and dizziness ... Show Full Comment
