Used this for my 3 year old son and it was very effective. The only downfall is they are so thick that trying to get a child to hold still long enough to get them in. They worked within minutes on my son and he was finally able to fall asleep within 20min after a long night of no sleep and constant crying.

My daughter had a ear infection. This was prescribed. I had some ear pain and I put about 3 drops in my ear about 4 hours later a big ball of black wax was just sitting on the bottom of my ear canal. Works miracles.

I used these drops for pain from an ear infection and although they did help with the pain for a short time they also made the entire side of my face go numb, can't blink, can't smile, can't taste...its really annoying. I won't use these anymore!

Comment:
I had an ear pain due to a sinus infection. This took the pain away immediatly. The only draw back is that the drops are so think and hard to get out of the bottle that I had to have another person put them in for me.
