(Meneire's Disease) ## can you use neomycin and polymyxin b sulfates and gramicidin ophthalmic solution usp for ear drops? my daughter has tubes and her ears a draining i was wondering if i could use that for ear drops. ## The instructions on my neomycin-polymyxin said nothing about shaking the bottle first.

(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.

is ercefuryl a diarrhea stopper like immodium or only an antibiotic?

I have occasional IBS, also diverticulitis. Is there a gentle diarrhea stopper I can use while I am travrlling for a couple of weeks other than immodium ## Jm. Ercefuryl is an intestinal antiseptic not an antibiotic. It is safe to use and has no harmful side effects. .It is highly effective against intestinal bacterial infections. The other highly effective medication is neomycin which is an antibiotic and you would need a doctor's prescription. .

ear infection drops question about Neomycin & Polymyxin B Sulfates & Hydrocortisone Otic Liquid Solution

I went to a clinic this past wednesday & had a massive ball of wax removed from my right ear & the pain in my right ear has subsided. Now my left ear feels like its full, clogged & hurts on & off since wednesday but 2 doctors in that clinic assured me there's no wax in my left ear BUT that my left middle inner ear has "supposed" fluid in it that needs to dry OUT. So I was prescribed amoxicillin 2x a day for 10 days & prednisone 40mg a day for 4 days ((to dry out my left ear, which steroid makes no sense to dry my ear out anyway??)). Well amoxicillin I am fine with but the prednisone left me with the worst acid reflux (since I'm an acid reflux sufferer), awful hives from head to toe, & was shaking horrificly like a leaf because I took prednisone fo...

Neomycin ear drops causing burning sensation

Does this medicine go to the back of the throat? I put four drops in my ear and it burned my sinuses and the back of my throat. ## Hello, Gwen! How are you? Has there been any change? Are you on any other medications? No, medications placed in your ear should not cause such issues with your nose and throat. The FDA lists the typical side effects as normally being limited to the ear and possibly including topical redness, itching, a feeling of fullness, and drainage. Sometimes, something may hit a certain nerve in your ear and make you cough, but that is usually the extent of it.

neopred 5 mg

I have been prescribed this medicine. I need to know what it does. ## This medication is unavailable in the U.S. and I am sorry to say that other countries do not regulate their prescription drugs as strictly as the FDA does. That said, finding information on them is very difficult, since there are no databases which list them all, like there are for U.S. prescription drugs. The only thing I can suggest is that you try asking your doctor or pharmacist for more information. ## There has been limited information available on this drug, but preliminary research suggests that Neopred is the brand of a drug available in Thailand. Is that where you are geogaphically located? Further information gathered suggests that Neopred contains the active ingredients Neomycin and Prednisolone. The only ...

kenacombe ointment

Can someone PLEASE tell me if a PRECAUTIONS LEAFLET should be inside the packet of KENACOMBE OINTMENT? I was prescribed this ointment with no leaflet to rub into my scalp for 2 weeks for infected dermatitis; my doctor of 5 years knew I had a bout of shingles two years ago and was still suffering nerve spasms in the back. After four applications of Kenacombe a rash appeared on my forehead; eyes severely itching and ears sore and itching. With no faith in the doctors in my area, I went to Brisbane for a second opinion to my rash as it was now spread to my breasts and midriff and down the top of my legs. The rash was burning and some blistering. The doctor in Brisbane indicated the Neomycin was the cause of the rash and burning and it would escalate for 14 days before easing!! imagine if I...
