How to use Floxin Otic Solution:

Use Floxin Otic Solution as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions.

  • Floxin Otic Solution is for use in the ear only. Do not get Floxin Otic Solution in your eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Hold the container in your hand for 1 or 2 minutes before using Floxin Otic Solution to avoid dizziness, which may result from the instillation of a cold solution into the ear.
  • To use ear drops, lie down or tilt your head so that the affected ear faces up. For adults, gently pull the earlobe up and back to straighten the ear canal. For children, gently pull the earlobe down and back to straighten the ear canal. Drop the medicine into the ear canal. Keep the ear facing up for 5 minutes so the medicine can run into the bottom of the ear canal. A clean cotton plug may be gently inserted into the ear canal to prevent the medicine from leaking out.
  • To prevent germs from contaminating the medicine, do not touch the applicator to any surface, including the ear. Keep the container tightly closed.
  • If you are using Floxin Otic Solution for a middle ear infection, pump the flap over the ear 4 times after instilling the medicine in order to help it reach the middle ear.
  • Floxin Otic Solution works best if used at the same time each day.
  • To clear up your infection completely, continue using Floxin Otic Solution for the full course of treatment, even if you feel better in a few days.
  • Floxin Otic Solution should not be used as an injection.
  • If you miss a dose of Floxin Otic Solution, use it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not use 2 doses at once.

Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Floxin Otic Solution.
