CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY1

TriOxin is effective both as an antibacterial and antifungal agent. The unique Hydrophilic Lipid based delivery system provides a suspension having an acid pH and a low surface tension, exerting a drying effect and allowing the medication to spread quickly to all contiguous surfaces, softening and reducing accumulated cerumen. Chloroxylenol is a halogenated phenol; non-toxic, non-corrosive, non-staining with high phenol coefficient. It may be applied directly to a wound and shows no chemical reactivity toward blood. TriOxin which contains hydrocortisone acetate is indicated when otitis is complicated by inflammation or to control itching. Benzocaine is a topical anesthetic with a low index of sensitization and toxicity.

TriOxin Ear Drops Dosage and Administration

SHAKE WELL BEFORE USING. The external auditory canal should be thoroughly cleansed and dried with a sterile cotton applicator. For adults, 4 to 5 drops of the suspension should be instilled into the affected ear 3 or 4 times daily. For infants and small children, 3 drops are suggested because of the smaller capacity of the ear canal. The patient should lie with the affected ear upward to instill the drops and this position maintained for 5 minutes to facilitate penetration of the drops into the ear canal. Repeat, if necessary, for the opposite ear.
