Drug & Food Interactions
No food and drug interactions have been reported.
Before instilling any medication into the ear, examine the external ear canal thoroughly to be certain the
tympanic membrane is not ruptured in order to avoid the possibility of transmitting infection to the
middle ear as well as damaging the cochlea or vestibular apparatus from prolonged contact. If hearing
or vestibular dysfunction is noted during the course of treatment, discontinue the use of nystatin,
neomycin sulfate, thiostrepton and triamcinolone acetonide ointment.
