      Please can you tell me if sofradex is safe to use. I have tinnitus already and know that the components in this medication are considered ototoxic.....I need to get rid of infection quickly....last time I had to have ear suctioning which made my tinnitus louder...thank you....susanne

      Sofradex ear drops have three active ingredients, one of which (framycetin) is ototoxic. I would not recommend the use of sofradex (or any drops containing aminoglycoside antibiotics) for somebody with tinnitus unless I were certain that the patient did not have a perforated eardrum.
