Ciprodex otic ear drops

Common Questions and Answers about Ciprodex otic ear drops

ciprodex

Avatar n tn Excellent advice, merceditas. Ciprodex otic is an antibiotic ear drop that combines the antibiotic ciprofloxacin with the glucocorticoid steroid dexamethasone. While both of these things are safe to use on a dog, human-strength drugs are often too strong to be used on our much-smaller four-legged companions, and what starts out as a well-meaning gesture quickly turns into a medical emergency far bigger than the original problem.
1899725 tn?1321500363 My 8 year son has had an ear infection for 5 weeks now. We've gone through a course of Ciprodex otic drops and a course of Neomycin/Polymyxin B ear drops. He's also been on Keflex and Augmentin. The doctor keeps telling me it's "swimmer's ear" or "just an ear infection" and should go away soon. 5 weeks of dealing with my child hurting is not soon enough. I'm actually a pediatic RN and know that this is not normal.
Avatar m tn To ease ear pain, apply a warm washcloth or a heating pad set on low. Follow the instructions for ear drops and complete your antibiotic course. You can use OTC Acetaminophen also for relief from pain. However, if symptoms worsen, consult your doctor. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
93654 tn?1247499334 My understanding is that ciprodex is an ear drop so you definitely need to stop using it in the eye. It may have a different pH than eye drops and might cause significant irritation - but not usually a major problem. Please have your doctor make you an appointment with an ophthalmologist and explain to the primary care docor that the ciprodex drops are not for the eye.
Avatar f tn i went back to see anothe doctore and prescribe sofradex ear drops and advice me to stop using kenacomb otic. it is now day 5 and my hearing on one ear is still muffled. I can hear normally when i use the phone on that ear but it is just the annoying muffled sound that is persistent. can you please help me. what can i do to stop the muffled sound in my ear?
Avatar m tn Hey! So this all started about two months ago when I decided it would be a good idea to self-irrigate my ear after experiencing a lot of wax. I got a syringe and some warm water and just started blasting into my right ear canal. It didn't end up being successful as the wax never actually did come out, but I then started having earaches that have never fully healed. I've been to the doctor 4 times since then.
Avatar m tn treated with CiproDex otic solution,no response, another round of CiproDex this time combined with Azithromycin. Left eyelid started twitching few days after ear infection/CiproDex treatment. Gradually, I started having tingling in my legs. Also had three panic attacks with heart beat +180 bpm. diagnosed with borderline hyperthyroidism (TSH 0.32 and FT4 24) and all symptoms were attributed to thyroid problem. The thyroid is back to normal now without any thyroid meds.
Avatar f tn I just had tubes put in both ears 6 days ago. I got the flu and had both ears infected. The pressure and pain is gone, but now I'm talks by ina tunnel and my hearing is diminished. I think I'm draining, because when I use my ciprodex drops...I swear I taste it in the back of my throat. How lucky big is this gonna last? Will my hearing go back to normal? Will the tunnel in my head stop?
Avatar m tn She has used OTIC drops prescribed by doctor but itching persists and as a result ear bud or finger need to used frequently to ease the pain and itch. Ear appears to be dry as tiny white dots are seen with occasional flake.
Avatar m tn the first 6 days when i put the drops he seems fine but now on the seventh day when i put the drops he`s crying ,its like he`s feeling some burning sensation or maybe stinging..i dont know what he really feels..he`s only 21 mos.my question is ..is that normal..after 6 days of drops suddenly he feels uncomfortable?
Avatar n tn He has an ear infection, which I have learned is common in goldens. His vet had me treat it with ear drops and antibiotics. He went back today (after 2 weeks) and they said that he would need to have his ear flushed. This procedure would cause him to be put under sedation. The cost would be over 250.00. The vet said that he has wax and debris in his ear canal and if it is not treated, his ear drum could rupture, causing hearing loss and further infection. Is this truly necessary?
1232362 tn?1333135406 the pain never really cleared up and the day before i went back to the dr and got script for ear drops it was qute severe. she said she saw fluid in both ears but not enough to warrant the pain i felt and if the drops don't correct i may have to see an ent specialist and may require tubes. what is this procedure? I'm 46 and have never had a problem w/my ears before! i have no fluid coming out of them, have some slight dizziness.
Avatar n tn Ask you vet for dosing on any over the counter one such as benadryl (diphenhydramine) or Tavist (clemastine) or Chlortrimeton (chlorpheniramine) BUT most important get your pup on oral antibiotics and antifungals along with a good topical ear med like otomax or for really bad yeast clotrimazole drops. Also try cleansing the ear with a mixture of Domeboro solution.
Avatar n tn Epi-Otic Ear Cleanser ($12.95 from Amazon) for an initial cleanse, the finish off with Mometamax Otic Suspension ($26.99 from 1-800-PetMeds). You'll need an Rx from your vet for the Momentamax, but it's the best thing since sliced bread and will knock out a yeast infection quicker than you can say M-O-M-E-N-T-A-M-A-X. My English Mastiff is prone to them, and this combination has always worked well for her.
Avatar m tn In the month of May, I returned to home from college and I started to experience ear pain and fullness. Went to some local doctor, the doc prescribed ear wax drops. It did not help. Then, I followed with a series of appointments with several doctors some prescribing cold tabs and some antibiotics. It did not help the hearing but the pain went away. In july, I went to an ENT doctor, she prescribed me a nasal spray, cold tabs and asked me to do valsalva maneuver.
Avatar n tn Ent relented and gave me Ciprodex ear drops. Began using 3 daya ago, they seem to help, especially first 2days, but the antibiotics I was on at the time, the prescribed term to use them was up! Now the drops don't seem as effective??? In the interim saw my family doctor, she looked in both ears, said the one ear, ear dum is clear, like saran wrap, the ear that I'm having the problem with, she said looks pink and thicker, she didn't seem to have an answer!!! Any ideas???

600619 tn?1219707750 One of my dogs got a horrible yeast infection in one ear and after he finished the meds, the epi-otic has really kept his ears healthy.
1621608 tn?1339519872 Baytril Otic, twice daily in ear; Otomax, twice daily in ear; or Mometamax once daily. Oral antibiotics that would help would be: Cephalexin at a dose of 25mg per Kg. twice daily for at least 14 to 21 days. Other antibiotic choices are: Ciprofloxacin and Enrofloxacin (Baytril) at a dose of 5 to 10 mg per Kg. twice daily for Ciprofloxacin and once daily for Enrofloxacin (Baytril). Even Amoxicillin would help. I do not know the size of this dog.
Avatar m tn s/lupus trigered by ear infection 2)adverse reaction to ciprodex since i might have overdosed 3) rheumatic fever since my ear infection was lingering for a couple of months until it was fully cured? which one is more likely? I am dying. I am thinking about getting something to take and die. I live in Canada and here it takes months until you see a specialist. I have an appointment with a rhematologist in a couple of months. I just cant take it anymore. please help me.
Avatar f tn I have had itchy, flaking, draining ears ever since swimming in a pool down at DisneyLand 25 years ago. I would use the prescription antibiotics drops, which would relieve the problem for a little while, but then the whole thing would start over again. Recently I have used two new product that seem to be the answer. Don't laugh but there is a non-prescription otic solution used on dogs with the same types of symptons called ZYMOX with hydrocortisone (Amazon.com).
Avatar f tn The best way to eliminate your dogs ear infections is with a culture and sensivity of the ear exudate which will reveal the exact cause and best medication to clear your dogs ear infection.
Avatar m tn My dog has a mild yeast infection in her left ear but she may have a tear in her eadrdrum. The vet gave us TrizEDTA but due to her losing her hearing from Tri-Otic, we didn't want to use any more ear medication that can cause hearing loss. I've recently started making her home cooked meals, wipe her down with apple cider vinegar+water, and flushing her ears out every other day plus cleaning the outer part of her ears on days I don't flush.

Avatar m tn Drug interecation. dog is new to gabapentin, ear flap is all crusty itchy. Has been on and is currently taking, methocarbamol, tramadol, carporfen.
Avatar f tn I'm using Zymox Otic now, on my 3rd day. I've had itchy wet, peeling ears for 4 years. Tried everything. Read lots of posts. I'm trying Zymox and not yet seeing any relief. I do notice that my ears feel especially itchy while I have the Zymox in my ear, maybe because it's "working"? And at night I tend to scratch them when I'm half asleep, and they seem especially sensitive afterward.
