    This medication worked great for me. I was diagnosed with swimmers ear and used the medicine for 10 days with no problems. My rx was only 15.00 which was also a bonus.

    After limited use, I experienced noticeable hearing loss and constant tinnitis. I ended up using this medication because the presciption given me by primary care physician was outside my affordabilty range. $300 to be exact. Another giant rip off from Big Pharma. You were expecting anything less?

    Iâ??ve used these ear drops for swimmers ear symptoms before with no problems. I used it recently and then I had pressure, pain and loss of hearing. I stopped using it right away and one week later I still canâ??t hear from that ear. Taking antibiotics hasnâ??t helped to get my hearing back.

    After using this medication for one day, my ear stopped up and I could hardly hear. Stopped using the drops and it became better. Now I have a ringing that never stops. The docter says there is nothing he can do. Please do not use this medication
