ANTIPYRINE/BENZOCAINE - OTIC

(AN-tee-PYE-reen/BEN-zoe-kane)

COMMON BRAND NAME(S): Auralgan, Aurodex

USES: This medication is used to relieve pain, congestion, and swelling caused by middle ear inflammation (acute otitis media). This medication is also used to help remove earwax. This product contains 2 main medications. Benzocaine is a topical anesthetic that helps to numb the pain. Antipyrine is an analgesic that helps to decrease the pain and inflammation. This product may also contain glycerin, which helps to soften the earwax, and/or zinc acetate, which helps to protect the skin.

HOW TO USE: Use this medication exactly as directed by your doctor.

An antibiotic medication may sometimes be prescribed along with this medication if you also have an infection.

To make sure that the right amount of medication is given, and to avoid touching the ear with the dropper, have another person insert the drops if possible. To lower the risk of dizziness, hold the container in your hand for a few minutes to warm it. 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. 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 2 minutes, or insert a soft cotton plug if so directed. You may be instructed by your doctor to moisten the cotton plug with this medication. Repeat for the other ear if so directed. Do not rinse the dropper. Replace the cap after use.

If you are using this medication to help remove earwax, gently rinsing the ear with warm water or using a soft rubber bulb after 2 to 3 days of treatment may help remove any remaining earwax. Consult your doctor or pharmacist about the safe use of an ear bulb.

Do not use in the eye.

Do not use this medication if it is brown or contains particles.

Inform your doctor if your condition persists after a few days of treatment or if it worsens.
