Otolorin is a combined preparation for topical use, has an antiseptic, disinfectant and moderate analgesic effect.
Release form and composition
The drug is produced in the form of ear drops: a colorless or slightly colored transparent liquid with a specific odor (10 ml each in glass bottles with a dropper cap, 1 bottle in a cardboard box and instructions for use of Otolorin).
1 ml drops contain:
- active ingredients: procaine hydrochloride - 20 mg, boric acid - 30 mg;
- auxiliary components: 0.1 M sodium hydroxide solution, 70% ethyl alcohol.
Otolorin is a combined preparation for topical use in otorhinolaryngology, has an antiseptic, disinfectant and moderately analgesic effect.
The clinical effect of the drug is due to the following properties of its active ingredients:
- boric acid: has an antiseptic and fungistatic effect, in relation to granulation tissues has a weak irritating effect;
- procaine: a local anesthetic with moderate potency and a wide therapeutic range. It is a weak base, which allows you to block sodium channels and prevent the generation of impulses in the endings of sensory nerves and their conduction along nerve fibers. In the membranes of nerve cells, it modifies the action potential without exerting a pronounced effect on the resting potential. Helps suppress the conduction of impulses of various modality, including pain.
Boric acid actively penetrates through mucous membranes and damaged tissues, especially in young children. It is displayed slowly. About 50% is excreted through the kidneys during the first 12 hours, the rest is excreted during the next 120 hours or more. Penetrating into organs and tissues, it can accumulate in them with repeated injections.
Procaine undergoes complete systemic absorption, which is particularly dependent on vascularization at the site of administration and blood flow rate, as well as on the site, route of administration and the final dose (amount and concentration). As a result of rapid hydrolysis by plasma and liver esterases, two main pharmacologically active metabolites are formed - diethylaminoethanol, which has a moderate vasodilating effect, and para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA). PABA is a competitive antagonist of sulfanilamide chemotherapeutic agents that can weaken their antimicrobial effects. The half-life of procaine is 0.7 minutes. It is excreted mainly through the kidneys in the form of metabolites, no more than 2% - unchanged.

Otolorin, instructions for use: method and dosage
Otolorin ear drops are used by instillation into the ear canal.
When treating children, tampons moistened with a solution are used, which are inserted into the ear canal.
It is recommended to hold the bottle in hand before use until its contents are warmed up. Such measures allow you to save the patient from the discomfort associated with the ingress of cold liquid into the ear.
For the procedure, the patient must lie on his side with his ear turned up and remain in this position for some time after instilling the drug.
The recommended dosage of Otolorin has the following age restrictions:
- adults: 2-3 drops 2-3 times a day;
- children over 1 year old: 1-2 drops 2-3 times a day.
The duration of the course of treatment should not exceed 7 days.
The use of drops may be accompanied by the development of allergic reactions, as well as burning and itching, which disappear on their own after one or two minutes and do not require discontinuation of the drug.
On the background of long-term therapy, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, and in rare cases - a state of shock may appear. When using Otolorin in patients with a perforated eardrum, due to contact of the drug with the organs of the middle ear, the occurrence of toxic reactions, including itching, redness of the skin, urticaria, nausea, vomiting, edema, confusion, imbalance, deafness, was noted.
In case of an overdose of the drug, the following acute and chronic toxic reactions may develop: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, skin rash, headache, confusion, impaired urination, in rare cases - shock.
It should be borne in mind that symptoms characteristic of an overdose may occur not only when the dosage regimen is violated, but also with prolonged use of Otolorin or the patient has renal dysfunction.
Symptomatic therapy is used to eliminate undesirable phenomena.
Otolorin should be used with caution at the same time as sulfanilamide drugs.
You should start using drops only after consulting a specialist who will confirm the integrity of the eardrum. The use of the drug with a perforated tympanic membrane increases the risk of toxic reactions.
Do not allow drops to fall on mucous membranes.
After opening, the contents of the bottle remain stable for 1 month.
