So, applying these drops in your ears daily allows you to finally get rid of the entire build-up, hence leaving you free from symptoms like hearing difficulties and itching.

    How long do I take Otex ear drops before I notice a difference?

    Medications affect people differently. So, there is no exact amount of time that these drops can take to provide some notable benefits. You might feel some difference and even see the earwax starting to come out almost immediately after use. However, you might use these drops and not notice any huge difference within the first day of applying. Most people start noticing more significant benefits after using Otex ear drops for at least two days or more. So, you must avoid using more doses than advised by your doctor, if you feel like the medication is taking too long to provide the desired results. You just need to be patient, and the benefits will start kicking in within no time. 

    What are the side effects of Otex ear drops?

    Like most medicines, using the Otex ear drops can also give you some side effects. However, you might or might not experience some or any of these side effects. Some of the most reported side effects of using these drops include:

    • A mild bubbling sensation in your ear. This feeling occurs due to the release of oxygen as the Otex ear drops break the excessive earwax into smaller pieces, and is usually temporary

    • The worsening of some symptoms like causing more discomfort, pain, irritation, dizziness, tinnitus, (ringing sound in your ears) and loss of hearing

    • Although this rarely happens, you might also experience a very unpleasant taste in your mouth. If you get this side effect, you should stop using Otex ear drops, and talk to your doctor to get immediate help

    When shouldn’t I take Otex ear drops?

    As much as Otex ear drops are safe to use, there are times when you should not take them to avoid complications. So, do not use these ear drops if:

    • You are allergic to hydrogen peroxide, or any other ingredient in these drops

    • You have ear problems

    • You are currently using other ear drops

    • You use a hearing aid

    • Your eardrum is damaged

    • You get dizzy a lot

    • You have syringed your ear in the past 2 or 3 days

    What’s the difference between Otex ear drops and other alternatives like Debrox Drops Earwax Removal Aid, and Mack’s Wax Away Earwax Removal System?

    You can use all these products to remove earwax from your blocked ears. However, Otex ear drops are better as they’re easier to use, unblock ears more effectively, and do not cause severe side effects compared to the two other products.

    After using Otex Ear Drops you are likely to experience a number of side effects. It is important to note that not everyone experiences the same side effects and side effects are often mild. Common side effects include the following:
