Can i use floxin otic (ofloxacin) for an ear infection when taking penicillin?
this is for my girlfriend who has mono like symptoms, and a strep throat, which is why she is taking penicillin. but she says her ears hurt. and when i had mono my ears hurt too. so i am just wondering if she can mix without harm?
Asked by Loretta Keeny 2 years ago.
I think your intentions are well-meaning, but you're also not a medical provider either. I've never seen someone with Mono AND Strep Throat in all my years caring for patients. Not to mention, it is a BIG "NO-NO" to use antibiotics with Mono. I would think the doctor said this to convey the "symptoms," because they can often be rather similar. Hold off on the drops. Strep commonly affects the ears to cause pain, but the drops will be useless because they will NOT work past the eardrum. She will be better off taking some Aleve or Advil to reduce her pain. Best of luck! Answered by January Pelini 2 years ago.
Never, ever self-medicate or share prescription medications. For one thing, it is illegal to share any prescription medications. Also, you said your girlfriend has "mono like symptoms" and strep throat. What do you mean by "mono like"? Was the doctor informed of this at the time of the strep throat diagnosis and penicillin administration? If the mono like symptoms are a new development, she should return to her doctor. If the doctor was aware of those symptoms, then he is probably thinking that the penicillin will cover all of that. Your girlfriend should start to feel better by day 3 or 4 but must finish her medication until it is gone or as instructed by her doctor. Penicillin remains the drug of choice for treating strep throat. Do not give her your floxin. Your otic floxin is specific for ear infections. You do not know that she really has an ear infection. Since it is an antibiotic, it will kill any bugs that are susceptible to it. We all have bacteria colonizing us everywhere. Indiscriminate use of antibiotics kills off a lot of our "good" and normal bacteria. This leaves plenty of room for the bad bacteria to grow. You could, in fact, make things worse instead of better. Don't disrupt the balance unless its for an infection and under the direction of a doctor. Answered by Dedra Goldfarb 2 years ago.
NEVER EVER mix prescription drugs without first talking to a health care provider. You could cause more harm than good. Answered by Caridad Hannemann 2 years ago.

Any doctors out there that can answer a fairly simple question?
The name of the med by the way is Floxin Otic singles (ofloxacin otic) each tube contains 0.25mL
Asked by Dorathy Bohm 2 years ago.
For starters I have already been to see my doctor. I have two very nasty ear infections (one of which promted a second visit because it started to bleed). I have been prescribed what feels like a ton of meds to help clear them up. My question being for one of my Rx. I was prescribed ear drop antibiotics to go along with an oral antibiotic, but I am to take what they call "singles" (little tubes filled with the med) . 2 in each ear once a day. I don't understand why only once a day with two in each ear, do you? and Why can't I take one in each ear twice a day? I am not overly concerned about it I was just curious to know and seeing how I can barely hear anything it is easier to type then to call the doctor again. Answered by Jenine Mabray 2 years ago.
Otitis externa is an inflammatory process of the external auditory canal. The unique structure of the external auditory canal contributes to the development of otitis externa. It is the only skin-lined cul-de-sac in the human body. The external auditory canal is warm, dark and prone to becoming moist, making it an excellent environment for bacterial and fungal growth. The skin is very thin and the lateral third overlies cartilage, while the rest has a base of bone. The canal is easily traumatized. The exit of debris, secretions and foreign bodies is impeded by a curve at the junction of the cartilage and bone. The presence of hair, especially the thicker hair common in older men, can be a further impediment. Fortunately, the external auditory canal has some special defenses. Cerumen creates an acidic coat containing lysozymes and other substances that probably inhibit bacterial and fungal growth. The lipid-rich cerumen is also hydrophobic and prevents water from penetrating to the skin and causing maceration. Too little cerumen can predispose the ear canal to infection, but cerumen that is excessive or too viscous can lead to obstruction, retention of water and debris, and infection. Additionally, the canal is defended by a unique epithelial migration that occurs from the tympanic membrane outward, carrying any debris with it. However, as evidenced by your condition, this does not always prevent an infection - otitis externa. The dose of the drops contained in the ‘singles’ that you describe, is likely insufficient to deliver a satisfactory dose which will affect the cause of the infection, therefore your doctor has prescribed two single doses for each ear. (if, for example, the required dose is 500 mg for each ear, and the dose contained in a ‘single’ is only 250mg, then you would need two ‘singles’ in each ear to make the required dose of 500mg) The reason for this being a ‘once a day’ dose is because that is the required dose to fight the infection each day. You will have a certain dose of oral (by mouth) tablets to take at certain intervals during the day which will ‘add up’ to the required dose for the whole day. The fact that the dose is split up during the day is to endeavour to keep the level of the antibiotic relatively high throughout the day. If you were to take all the medication at one time, then the medication would reach a peak and gradually ‘drop off’. The oral antibiotics compliment the aural ones instilled into your ears by the ‘singles’. Hope this helps Matador 89 Answered by Lillian Rumford 2 years ago.
Not an MD but an RN you have a bacterial infection and it's best with this medicine to take it at the same time each day - for the course of treatment to get rid of the infection (how most antibiotics work) thus the importance of the time of day to take and follow directions. It's to hit the infection to the ear drum. If you just had a middle ear infection you'd do one drop twice a day. There is no ryme or reason other then this is what works best for your type of serious (painful) infection. Rest. Feel better soon! Answered by Thelma Terstage 2 years ago.
You know you would be best to ask your Pharmacists. They can be very very informative when it comes to Rx's, and may even be able to give you an answer to that question. As for the dosage I am not sure why you should have them both at the same time. That may in fact just be the size of the dose needed and they have to break it into two smaller tubes for administration. Much like cough medicine, yes you need two table spoons, not one now and one later, but a table spoon is a easy to take measurement. I hope that helps out, and best of luck with those ear infections. Just a little FYI did you know that second hand smoke can actually cause severe and reoccurring ear infections. Answered by Elvira Kowallis 2 years ago.
Most likely would be the antibiotic milligram dosage in the small single use tubes.For instance if your MD ordered the ear drops to have 500mg of antibiotic in each ear,and it only came in 250milligrams in each tube,then the proper dose would be 2 tubes in each ear twice a day,total of 500mg/ 2x a day in each ear,along with the antibiotics by mouth. You can call your pharmacy to make sure.Take care. SW RNP Answered by Darrin Conlisk 2 years ago.

you need to take one so if can thin the wax of the ear, you then take it later because the wax builds up, to much, and you burn your ear cannal Answered by Hassie Myhr 2 years ago.

I got something in my eye yesterday, i flushed it out with cold water, saline rinse but nothing worked, had a hard time sleeping last night cause when i closed my eyes I could really feel it, got up and put some antibiotic eye drops in it thru the nite or so what i though was eye drops, comes to find out it was ear drops floxin otic. Whatever was in my eye is gone but it feels like really brusied and throbbing pain in it today. Could these drops have made it worse and if this happens again any recommendations on what to do because the cold water and rinse didn't work good. Thanks, Tee Answered by Dania Sirmon 2 years ago.
Sound like you scratched your cornea, throbbing red, murky looking. Go to your eye doc, this can cause permanent eye damage if not treated. Answered by Theodora Brummet 2 years ago.
I have scratched my eyes 2 times and had super glue in them once, I have also burned my cornea with a curling iron! Other than the burn, I had to flush my eyes out with water and an anti-bacterial rinse. The pain will go away within a few days if you don't rub your eyes. best of luck!
