Is Cerumol Discontinued In Canada?

What are Cerumol ear drops?

Cerumol Ear Drops is a dual action drop that helps to gently break down ear wax by softening and loosening wax and clearing the ear canal. Wax can build up and block the ear canal. Wax blockage is one of the most common causes of hearing loss.

The wax in your ears is made by glands in the skin of your outer ear canal. The wax and tiny hairs in these passages trap dust and other materials that could damage deeper parts of your ear, such as your eardrum.

However, in some people, the glands produce more wax which may harden in the ear canal and block the ear, causing an impaction. When you try to clean the ear, you may instead push wax deeper and block the ear canal. For this reason, healthcare providers recommend against trying to reach into your own ear to clean it.

Cerumol ear drops work to soften and remove stubborn earwax blockage. If you suffer from blocked ears caused by dry, hardened earwax, Cerumol can help to provide the relief you need.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cerumol Ear Drops

What happens when you have blocked ears?

When your ears are blocked with hard, dried earwax, you can experience several symptoms that will let you know that things aren’t right. Some of the most common side effects of earwax buildup include:

  • Loss of hearing
  • Earache
  • Itchiness
  • Dizziness
  • Ear infections

High-pitched tones or ringing in the ear (also known as tinnitus)

How will Cerumol Ear Drops clear my blocked ears?

Cerumol contains many active ingredients that soak into the hard, built-up earwax in your ear canal. This softens the wax, helping it to fall out of the ear naturally, or preparing it to be syringed away by your doctor or nurse.

Should I try to remove ear wax myself?

Cerumol ear wax drops help to soften ear wax so it can fall out on its own, but you may be tempted to try and remove the wax by yourself. You absolutely should not do this and you should never stick anything into your ear in an attempt to remove the wax. The organs in your ear are very delicate and can be accidentally damaged if you try to remove your ear wax by yourself. Play it safe, and let your doctor or nurse remove your ear wax if necessary.

How to use Cerumol ear drops?

Tilt your head sideways, keeping the ear you wish to treat facing upwards. Use the dropper to place 2 – 3 Cerumol ear drops into your ear, being careful not to touch the ear with the dropper. Gently massage around the outside of the ear. Keep head tilted for a few minutes to allow drops to soak into the wax and to reach the eardrum. Plug lightly with cotton wool to prevent leaking. Repeat the process in the other ear if necessary. For best results, apply Cerumol ear drops twice a day for up to 7 days.

When should Cerumol not be used?

Cerumol ear drops are not suitable for use on children under the age of 1, children younger than 5 should only use this product under medical supervision. Do not use this product if you are allergic to olive oil. For external use only, avoid getting this product into your eyes. Check that dropper is not broken or damaged before use.

Does this product have any side effects?

Cerumol ear drops do not currently have any known side effects. However, all medications can have side effects, so if you do experience any unwanted effects while using this product, stop use and speak to your doctor or pharmacist.
