When should I stop taking Floxin Otic?

Use Floxin Otic for the full time prescribed, even if you feel better or the symptoms go away after a few days. Stopping this medication too early may allow bacteria to continue to grow, which can result in the infection returning. Let your doctor know if you don't feel there is improvement after one week. Report any fluids or other ear discharge you notice after treatment is done.
