My wife is deaf in one ear; has had ongoing ear issues since childhood; growing up in home with two indoor chain smokers. She's been prescribed that product in the past. I've read the warnings that came with it and researched the lawsuits.
tobramycin is neurotoxic, nephrotoxic, teratogenic, and suppresses immune response to fungal and viral infections; and can cause 'irreversible neuromuscular paralysis": These warnings are in "BLACK BOX".
A black box warning is the strictest warning put in the labeling of prescription drugs or drug products by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) when there is reasonable evidence of an association of a serious hazard with the drug.
To each his own.
olive leaf works; its systemic oral treatment; nothing has to go in your ear hole... plus its neuroprotective, anti-cancer, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, fights endothelial dysfunction, and attenuates liver damage.
