What is the most important information I should know about my Pramotic?

· Do not use the medication in your eyes or take it by mouth. Pramotic is for use in the ears only.

· Notify your doctor if burning or itching occurs or if your condition does not improve.

 

What is Pramotic?

· Chloroxylenol is an antibiotic. Antibiotics fight bacteria in your body.

· Pramoxine is a skin anesthetic. It is used to reduce itching and pain caused by ear infections.

· Together, chloroxylenol and pramoxine are used to treat infections in the ears.

· Pramotic may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.

 

Who should not use an Pramotic?

· Do not use Pramotic if the ear drum (tympanic membrane) has ruptured (broken). It is dangerous for medicine to get into the inner ear. A ruptured ear drum usually causes a considerable amount of pain. A decrease in hearing may also occur. Call your doctor if you suspect a ruptured ear drum. Your doctor will know if the ear drum is ruptured by looking into your ear with a special device.

· Do not use Pramotic without first talking to your doctor if you are pregnant.

· Do not use Pramotic without first talking to your doctor if you are breast-feeding.

 

How should I use my Pramotic?

· Use Pramotic exactly as directed by your doctor. If you do not understand these instructions, ask your pharmacist, nurse, or doctor to explain them to you.

· Do not use the medication in your eyes or take it by mouth. Pramotic is for use in the ears only.

 

· In general, Pramotic should be used as follows:     ·Have another person administer the drops whenever possible. Thoroughly clean the external ear and the ear canal of the affected ear(s).     ·Lie on your side or tilt your ear up to make administering a drop easier.     ·For adults, hold the earlobe up and back. For children, hold the earlobe down and back. This will allow the drops to run into the ear canal. Carefully instill the prescribed number of drops in each ear.     ·Keep the ear tilted for approximately 5 minutes. A cotton or gauze plug may be inserted into the ear canal to contain the medication if directed by your doctor.     ·Alternatively, a cotton or gauze plug may be inserted into the affected ear(s) before using the drops, and moistened with a few drops of sterile water. Then, the plug may be saturated with Pramotic, and drops should be repeated as prescribed without removing the plug. The plug should be replaced after 24 hours.

· Use all of the medication that has been prescribed for you. Your symptoms may improve before your condition is completely treated. If you do not use all of the medication prescribed, the condition could return or worsen.

· Notify your doctor if burning or itching occurs or if your condition does not improve.

· Store Pramotic at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep the bottle properly capped.

 

What happens if I miss a dose?

· Use the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and use only your next regularly scheduled dose. Do not use a double dose of Pramotic unless otherwise directed by your doctor.

 

What happens if I overdose?

· Seek emergency medical attention.

· Symptoms of a Pramotic overdose are not known.

 

What should I avoid while using this medication?

What are the possible side effects of Pramotic?

· Stop using Pramotic and seek emergency medical attention or notify your doctor if you experience     ·an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; closing of your throat; swelling of your lips, tongue, or face; or hives);     ·ear drainage or discharge; or     ·worsening pain, irritation, or rash.
