It is an eye drop and was wondering what it is used to treat since it was prescribed for an ear infection.

I wondered if you could tell me what the recommended dosage is for this drug. It was prescribed to me in July and I didn't keep the insert from the box that had the dosage. I have the same condition again and need to know how much to use. Thank you.

Just to add some clarifications to this thread...

A sterile eye antibiotic solution can be used in the ear, but not vice versa, since ear solutions aren't sterile and, since it an antibiotic solution, that means it's used to treat infections.

As to the dosage, for inner ear infections, it is 1 to drop every four to 6 hours, depending on prescribing instructions and four outer ear infections, it is 4 drops every 4 to 6 hours, depending on instructions.

For use in the eye, it is as Candice posted, one drop every 4 hours, but sometimes it may be prescribed to use every 3 hours.

Are there any other questions?

There are more Polytrim details available here.

My last ear drop for infection said 5-10 drops in infected ear. One drop will not go deep enough to clear the infection.
