Hello, Mary! How are you? I'm sorry about the ear infection, they can be very painful.

This is an antibiotic that can be used to treat various types of infections, as listed by the FDA, but it may not be the appropriate one for your ear infection and taking it inappropriately creates the risk of your developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. You should see your doctor for a proper diagnosis and prescription, if necessary.

Typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.

Is there anything else I can help with?
