My 3 year old daughter has suffered from ear infections with effusion since she was 7 months old. She had tubes placed when she was 2. I have had to give her ciprodex numerous times but this is the last time. After I payed $140 for this little tube she has blood draining from her ears and it is awful. I cannot even articulate how upset I am. Homeopathy is so much better.

It did not make my 3-year old son's ear feel better...but it did make him very anxious and made him act very "strange."

I have a long-time perforated eardrum, and got a middle-ear infection after a cold. My doctor prescrined these drops. My first reaction was to the price - very expensive! After a few days of inserting the drops, my palms and fingers started itching and I developed a rash. Read the medicine insert, which listed a rash as a possible negative side effect. The doctor was adament that no connection - that rash from the drops would be local, i.e. at or around the ear. I was almost at end of my 10-day course of drops, so continued for 3 more days. Once I stopped the drops, the rash and itching stopped. But now the skin on my hands has been peeling off. Very dry, scratchy and uncomfortable. Could this be a result of the drops? PS - My ear infection's better tho!

Caused marked decrease in hearing. Looking for treatment to counter this hearing loss. If one cannot tolerate a decrease in hearing, and I can't (only one ear), DO NOT USE IT!

Currently on the second day. All 4 times I've lost my hearing everything seems muffled all day long. It burns and itches. My throat hurts now there's tons of drainage and now my other ear feels infected. Not sure if thats a coincidence or from treating my right ear. Luckily we got this free from my ear specialist otherwise I would of had to pay 100 bucks. Also its required for someone else to administer the medicine. Impossible to do it yourself

This was given to my son for an ear infection and after 3 doses he seems to have gotten worse. He woke up crying that it felt like something was stabbing his ear and now he is complaining he is dizzy. Each time I put the drops in his ears he screams that it burns and it keeps burning for hours after. Just called the dr for something else. 135.00 wasted and my poor son has gotten no relief, just has even more pain.

Had severe pain in right ear. Hard to hear for 3 months before.Used these drops for 2 days now and still sounds like the cable is out on the TV. First night a lot of pain and Blood ran out of my ear and then it has been slightly yellow and sticky liqiud since. Still draining today. Putting drops in by your self is difficult and not easy to get into the canal. Should have a better design of bottle.

I was prescribed Ciprodex for an inner ear infection by my Doctor, From the second dose I started to itch, my skin felt hot and I broke out in hives. I will not be finishing the course. It is unacceptable to have such side effects.
