    I had a problem with my ear being what I called clogged. So the dr. Prescribed this med for me. I found it didn't work just clogged it even more and after 4 days of using it nothing had changed. I started to use a tool to clean my ear not a q-tip and hydrogen porixide and now I can hear.

    I have psoriasis on my ears, so occasionally I will get a gummed up ear from debris and/or cream treatments. The first two times I got this, I was put on Ciprodex. They were awful experiences.

    I was given this drug for outer ear inflammation and infection. I'm not sure now if I really had either. I put drops in my ear per instructions for 8 days. On the 8th day, I developed tinnitus for the first time in my left ear and old tinnitus that I had in right became worst. I would never take this drug again!

    I had to give this product a (3) star down the middle. I used this medicine twice. The first time, I had an ear infection and was prescribed this. My ear got worse after I put a few drops in so I stopped using it after one time and healed on my own. The same year, I got another infection and after suffering for about a week, I put two drops of this in my ear and the next morning my ear was complet ... Show Full Comment
