Florfenicol is a bacteriostatic antibiotic which acts by inhibiting protein synthesis. Its spectrum of activity includes Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Terbinafine is an antifungal which selectively inhibits the early synthesis of ergosterol. Betamethasone acetate is a glucocorticosteroid with anti-inflammatory activity.

Dosage and Administration:

Administer one dose (1 tube) per affected ear(s) and repeat administration in 7 days. Do not clean the ear canal for 45 days after the initial administration to allow contact of the gel with the ear canal. Cleaning the ear may affect product effectiveness (see Effectiveness). If alternative otic therapies are required it is recommended to clean the ear(s) before application.
Open tube by twisting the soft tip. Insert the flexible tip into the affected external ear canal(s) and squeeze entire tube contents into the external ear canal(s). After application, gently massage the base of the ear to allow the gel to penetrate to the lower part of the ear canal.
