Medically reviewed by Drugs.com. Last updated on Sep 12, 2019.

  • OTOVEL is for otic use only. It is not for ophthalmic use, or for injection.

The recommended dosage regimen is as follows:

  • Instill the contents of one single-dose vial 0.25 mL into the affected ear canal twice daily (approximately every 12 hours) for 7 days. Use this dosing for patients aged 6 months of age and older.
  • Warm the solution by holding the vial in the hand for 1 to 2 minutes. This is to avoid dizziness, which may result from the instillation of a cold solution into the ear canal.
  • The patient should lie with the affected ear upward, and then instill the medication.
  • Pump the tragus 4 times by pushing inward to facilitate penetration of the medication into the middle ear.
  • Maintain this position for 1 minute. Repeat, if necessary, for the opposite ear [see Instructions for Use].
