How to use Carbamide Peroxide Solution:

Use Carbamide Peroxide 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 Carbamide Peroxide Solution for more than 4 days without talking to your doctor.
  • If you miss a dose of Carbamide Peroxide 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 Carbamide Peroxide Solution.
