Proper Use of this medication

To apply ear drops, wash your hands first. To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your ear or any other surface. Lie on your side or tilt the affected ear upward. Hold the dropper directly over the ear, and place the prescribed number of drops into the ear canal, usually twice a day or as directed by your doctor. To help the drops roll into the ear of an adult, hold the earlobe up and back. In children, hold the earlobe down and back. Keep the head tilted for about 1 minute, or insert a soft cotton plug if so directed. Remove the plug after 1 minute. Repeat for the other ear if so directed. Do not rinse the dropper. Replace the cap after use. Do not bandage, cover, or wrap the area unless directed to do so by your doctor.

Avoid getting this medication in the eyes, nose, or mouth. If you get the medication in these areas, rinse with plenty of water.

Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment.

Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same times each day.

Use this medication only for the condition for which it was prescribed. Do not use it for longer than prescribed.

Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens after 2 weeks.
