Casporyn HC Ear Drops Dosage
Medically reviewed by Drugs.com. Last updated on Sep 16, 2021.
Generic name: HYDROCORTISONE 10mg in 1mL, NEOMYCIN SULFATE 3.5mg in 1mL, POLYMYXIN B SULFATE 10000[USP'U] in 1mL
Dosage form: otic suspension
Therapy with this product should be limited to 10 consecutive days. The external auditory canal should be thoroughly cleansed and dried with a sterile cotton applicator.
For adults, 4 drops of the suspension should be instilled into the affected ear 3 or 4 times daily.
For children, 3 drops are suggested because of the smaller capacity of the ear canal.
The patient should lie with the affected ear upward and then the drops should be instilled. This position should be maintained for 5 minutes to facilitate penetration of the drops into the ear canal. Repeat, if necessary, for the opposite ear.
If preferred, a cotton wick may be inserted into the canal and then the cotton may be saturated with the suspension. This wick should be kept moist by adding further suspension every 4 hours. The wick should be replaced at least once every 24 hours.
SHAKE WELL BEFORE USING.
