- Store at room temperature between 59 and 86 degrees F (15-30 degrees C) away from light and moisture.

- To apply ear drops, wash hands first.
- To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your ear or any other surface.
- Lie on your side or tilt the affected ear upward.
- Place the dropper directly over the ear and administer the prescribed number of drops (3 or 4 drops are used three or four times daily or as directed).
- To help the drops roll into the ear (for adults) hold the earlobe up and back or (for children) hold the earlobe down and back.
- Keep the head tilted for about two minutes or insert a soft cotton plug if so directed (consult your pharmacist).
- Do not rinse the dropper.

- Stopping this medication too soon, however, may not clear the infection and may result in a reinfection.
- Treatment is for 10 days or as directed.
- If symptoms persist after 10 days, notify your doctor promptly.
- This medication should not be placed in the ear if the eardrum is punctured.
