The instructions on my neomycin-polymyxin said nothing about shaking the bottle first. I am on it for 7 days, and am on day 3 of using it without shaking it. Will it still be effective? (I've been battling my ear infection for a very long time too, just like everyone else in this chat.) :P

Ear drops and eye drops can both be used in the ear, according to what my cardiologist has told me, since eye drops are sterile. However, you cannot use ear drops in the eye, since they are not sterile.

The FDA warns that they may cause irritation, redness, a feeling of fullness, and swelling. The doses are comparable, so if one says to fill the ear and wait 5 minutes, the same would apply to the other, unless the doses of the active ingredients are different.

Yes, Davenport, that is also possible. Are you treating an ear infection?

Swan, it is always best to consult your doctor to be sure, but if you choose to continue, as is, make sure to shake them each time.

Misty, given that she has tubes, I would not suggest using anything her pediatrician has not approved.

Are there any other questions?
