So I I may have an ear infection / inflammation in my left ear as its painful and has been since I got my earwax flushed on Sunday. The doctor prescribed me sofracort an antibotic steroid for 10 days. I took it twice on Tuesday and once on Wednesday. I stopped on Wednesday because I read an article on how that class of antibiotics can cause oxotoxicy (typically only when the ear drum is performed) (hearing loss, balance issues, vision issues) and even kidney problems. There is also a fda black box warning on it but I'm pretty sure it's more to do with iv administration and oral pills. Also apprently the adverse effects can apprently be permanent My ear pain got worse so I saw a doctor again and it's the only option unfortunately as ciprodex is out of the question I'm allergic to it. So ever since I've been incredibly anxious about it and I hope it works against the inflammation and potential infection. I'm so worried about using this medication but it's the only option The antibiotics are framyctin gramicidin which is basically (neomycin and polyxmin b) with a corticosteroid called dexamethasone.
