      Hi there,

      I had microsuction to remove a significant amount of pus from my ear.

      I had gone deaf on that ear and the sensation that accompanied that was most uncomfortable.

      My doctor then prescribed ciprofloxacin drops.

      Please could you comment on this as I believed that cipro was ototoxic...

      My ent doctor said they are not... Confused.

      Thank you

      Susi.......

      I would have no problem prescribing ciprofloxacin ear drops for a tinnitus sufferer who had an ear infection.

      Hope this helps.
