Overview

  • Otex ear drops are used to help remove hardened wax from the ear canal.
  • Otex is suitable for use by adults, children and the elderly.

Side Effects

Like all medicines, Otex can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.

  • A temporary mild bubbling sensation in the ear can occur (due to the release of oxygen as the drops break down the ear wax).
  • The ear drops can make the symptoms of excessive ear wax worse, including some discomfort, irritation or pain, loss of hearing, dizziness and tinnitus (ringing sound in the ear).
  • Very rarely, an unpleasant taste has been reported. Stop using the ear drops immediately if this happens and tell your doctor.

Stop using this product and tell your doctor or pharmacist if:

  • symptoms persist or, if any of the side effects get serious
  • or you notice any other side effects not mentioned in this leaflet.
