Otomax Ear Drops Suspension general information

What is Otomax Ear Drops Suspension used for?

Otomax Ear Drops Suspension is a combination medication used as a topical treatment for acute otitis externa in dogs; also, for treatment of short term exacerbation of the acute signs of chronic external otitis.  Otitis externa is an infection of the outer ear that is caused by bacteria particularly Staphylococcus intermedius and/or fungi, particularly Malassezia pachydermatis.  Otomax Ear Drops Suspension is also effective for treating inflammation that is caused by the infection and helps relieve symptoms including itching, discomfort, redness and swelling. 

How does Otomax Ear Drops Suspension work?

Otomax Ear Drops Suspension is a white opaque liquid suspension containing the antibiotic gentamicin, the steroid betamethasone and the antifungal clotrimazole that work together to treat infection and inflammation of the outer ear in dogs.  Gentamicin sulphate in Otomax Ear Drops Suspension is an aminoglycoside antibiotic and is effective against a wide range of susceptible bacteria that can cause ear infection in dogs.  It works by inhibiting bacterial protein synthesis, which prevents the bacteria from producing important proteins needed to grow and kills the bacteria.  Betamethasone in Otomax Ear Drops Suspension is a synthetic topical corticosteroid, with anti-inflammatory and anti-pruritic activity that works by blocking the production of inflammatory chemicals like prostaglandins and leukotrienes.  Betamethasone inhibits the cyclooxygenase (COX 1 and COX 2) enzyme that is specifically involved in prostaglandin production.  Clotrimazole in Otomax Ear Drops Suspension is a broad spectrum antifungal used to treat fungal infections of the skin.  It is effective against the yeast Malassezia pachydermatis (formerly Pityrosporum canis) that causes ear infections in dogs.  It works by inhibiting the synthesis of ergosterol, an important component of fungal cell membrane that is not found in animal cells.  This weakens the fungal cell membrane causing the cell contents to leak out killing the fungus.  The three components of Otomax Ear Drops Suspension work together to fight the infection that causes otitis; they also help relieve symptoms of inflammation caused by the infection. 

What does Otomax Ear Drops Suspension contain?

Otomax Ear Drops Suspension contains the active ingredients gentamicin base (as sulfate) 2640 IU, betamethasone (as valerate) 0.88 mg, and Clotrimazole 8.80 mg, that work together to treat infection and inflammation of the outer ear in dogs.  It also contains a paraffin liquid plasticised hydrocarbon gel base.

What are the side effects of Otomax Ear Drops Suspension?

The most commonly reported side effects when taking Otomax Ear Drops Suspension include deafness or partial hearing loss and impaired balance in some sensitive dogs due to gentamicin; increased thirst and urinating due to betamethasone, which if used for prolonged periods or ingested can cause vomiting and diarrhoea, also symptoms of long-term corticosteroid use like immunosuppression, thinning of the skin and delayed wound healing healing.  Clotrimazole may cause some skin irritation.
