I was suffering from excessive ear wax for more than a few months. I purchased DEBROX thinking it would fix my problem. I was wrong. I used it for 4 days. I used the drops and flushed my ears out with the syringe as the label instructs. During the treatment I began to have trouble hearing and severe pain in my left ear. I went to the doctor and found out I had given myself and ear infection. My ea ... Show Full Comment

I had wax in my ear and used this product for one day (2x) and have had dizziness, tightening of my chest and my ear after 2 weeks is still blocked with headaches. It's a horrible product. I went to an ENT and had the wax removed professionally but I still after weeks have not been feeling great after one treatment. It should be off the market!!!!

I read the other reviews, and decided to irrigate with just water first, since it seemed like that was what set apart the positive reviews from the negative (other than the people who didn't realized that tubes are holes). It took half a mug of lukewarm water, and the bulb, testing for hearing between each squirt, but I can hear again. Quite frankly, the kit is worth it for the bulb if it ma ... Show Full Comment

I have been using Debrox once every year or two for the past 10 years to rid myself of large wax buildups. Debrox DOES work, but maybe not as you would hope or expect. The first couple days you use it, your ear will become completely clogged since the wax foams up, loosens, and moves around. The packaging says that the wax will then start to drain out on its own... I have never had this ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Very good product. One day, I felt things were moving fast in front of me, then badly vomited. It was caused by too much ear wax blocked my left ear. The doctor cleaned some wax out, but still had some left, because it was too deep inside the ear. Then she told me to use the Debrox Kit. All wax has been cleaned by using the Kit for 3 days. Must use the Kit!
