Brand Name: Examples include Auro and Debrox

Auro Solution is used for:

Softening, loosening, and removing excessive earwax.

Auro Solution is a form of peroxide. It works by softening and removing earwax.

Do NOT use Auro Solution if:

  • you are allergic to any ingredient in Auro Solution
  • you have ear drainage or discharge, ear pain, irritation, rash in the ear, ear injury, hole in the eardrum, broken eardrum, or recent ear surgery
  • you are dizzy

Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.

Before using Auro Solution:

Some medical conditions may interact with Auro Solution. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any medical conditions, especially if any of the following apply to you:

  • if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding
  • if you are taking any prescription or nonprescription medicine, herbal preparation, or dietary supplement
  • if you have allergies to medicines, foods, or other substances

Some MEDICINES MAY INTERACT with Auro Solution. Because little, if any, of Auro Solution is absorbed into the blood, the risk of it interacting with another medicine is low.

This may not be a complete list of all interactions that may occur. Ask your health care provider if Auro Solution may interact with other medicines that you take. Check with your health care provider before you start, stop, or change the dose of any medicine.

How to use Auro Solution:

Use Auro Solution as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions.

  • This medicine is for use in the ear only. Avoid contact with other mucous membranes and eyes.
  • To use ear drops, lie down or tilt your head so that the affected ear faces up. For adults, gently pull the earlobe up and back to straighten the ear canal. For children, gently pull the earlobe down and back to straighten the ear canal. Drop the medicine into the ear canal. Keep the ear facing up for several minutes so the medicine can run to the bottom of the ear canal. A clean cotton plug may be gently inserted into the ear canal to prevent medicine from leaking out. To prevent germs from contaminating the medicine, do not touch the applicator to any surface, including the ear. Keep the container tightly closed.
  • Any wax remaining after treatment may be removed by gently flushing the ear with warm water, using a soft rubber bulb ear syringe.
  • Use twice daily for 4 days if necessary, or as directed by your doctor. Do not use Auro Solution for more than 4 days without talking to your doctor.
  • If you miss a dose of Auro Solution, use it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not use 2 doses at once.

Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Auro Solution.

Important safety information:

  • If excessive earwax remains after use of Auro Solution, contact your doctor.
  • Auro Solution is not recommended for use in CHILDREN younger than 12 years of age except under the advice of a doctor.
  • PREGNANCY and BREAST-FEEDING: It is unknown if Auro Solution can cause harm to the fetus. If you become pregnant while taking Auro Solution, discuss with your doctor the benefits and risks of using Auro Solution during pregnancy. It is unknown if Auro Solution is excreted in breast milk.
