Auralgan Side Effects Center
Medical Editor: John P. Cunha, DO, FACOEP
Auralgan (antipyrine, benzocaine, and dehydrated glycerin) is used to relieve pain, congestion, and swelling caused by middle ear inflammation (acute otitis media), and it is also used to help remove earwax (cerumen). Antipyrine is an analgesic, benzocaine is a topical anesthetic, and glycerin helps to soften earwax. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects. Rarely, burning/stinging/redness/new pain in or around the ears may occur.
To treat acute otitis media, the dose of Auralgan is to instill the solution into the wall of the ear canal until it is filled. Repeat every one to two hours per doctor's instructions until pain and congestion are relieved. Auralgan may interact with other ear medications. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use. During pregnancy, Auralgan should be used only when prescribed. It is unknown if this drug passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
