Patienteninformation

Cerumenex®

Mundipharma Medical Company

Was ist Cerumenex und wann wird es angewendet?

Cerumenex erweicht und löst verfestigte Pfropfen von Ohrenschmalz. Es dringt zwischen das

Ohrenschmalz und die Gehörgangwand ein.

Cerumenex wird angewendet zum Entfernen von verfestigtem Ohrenschmalz aus dem Gehörgang,

z.B. bei Verschluss oder teilweisem Verschluss des äusseren Gehörgangs und vor ohrenärztlichen

Untersuchungen, Behandlungen und Eingriffen.

Was sollte dazu beachtet werden?

Cerumenex ist zum einmaligen Gebrauch mit anschliessender Spülung bestimmt.

Aufgeweichte Ohrenschmalzpfropfen durch Spülung mit Wasser entfernen, und nicht mit harten

Gegenständen wie z.B. Wattestäbchen.

Wann darf Cerumenex nicht angewendet werden?

Bei Ohrenentzündungen, bei perforiertem Trommelfell, bei Hauterkrankungen (z.B. Ekzemen) im

Gehörgang und in der Ohrmuschel, bei Allergie auf einen der Inhaltsstoffe.

Cerumenex darf nicht zur Behandlung von Ohrenschmerzen verwendet werden.

Wann ist bei der Anwendung von Cerumenex Vorsicht geboten?

Falls Sie auf Seifen mit allergischen Hautreaktionen reagieren, sollte vor der Anwendung von

Cerumenex die lokale Verträglichkeit abgeklärt werden.

Bei zu langer Einwirkungszeit kann Cerumenex im Ohrenbereich Irritationen auslösen. Ein

Überschreiten der Einwirkungszeit von 30 Minuten muss deshalb vermieden werden.

Bei Auftreten von Überempfindlichkeitsreaktionen (z.B. Hautausschlag, Hautrötung, Juckreiz,

Schwellungen im Bereich des Gesichts oder des Nasen-Rachen-Raumes, Atembeschwerden) ist das

Arzneimittel abzusetzen und ein Arzt bzw. eine Ärztin aufzusuchen.

Bei gleichzeitigem Auftreten von Schwindel ist ein Arzt bzw. eine Ärztin aufzusuchen.

Bei Versagen der Therapie ist ein Arzt bzw. eine Ärztin aufzusuchen.

Informieren Sie Ihren Arzt, Apotheker oder Drogisten bzw. Ihre Ärztin, Apothekerin oder Drogistin,

wenn Sie an anderen Krankheiten leiden, Allergien haben oder andere Arzneimittel (auch

selbstgekaufte) einnehmen oder äusserlich anwenden!

Darf Cerumenex während einer Schwangerschaft oder in der Stillzeit angewendet werden?

Aufgrund der bisherigen Erfahrungen ist bei bestimmungsgemässer Anwendung kein Risiko für das

Kind bekannt. Systematische wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen wurden aber nie durchgeführt.

Vorsichtshalber sollten Sie während der Schwangerschaft und Stillzeit möglichst auf Arzneimittel

verzichten oder den Arzt, Apotheker oder Drogisten bzw. die Ärztin, Apothekerin oder Drogistin um

Rat fragen.

Wie verwenden Sie Cerumenex?

Mehrere Tropfen Cerumenex mit Hilfe der im Flaschendeckel enthaltenen Pipette bei schräg

gehaltenem Kopf in den Gehörgang einträufeln. Gehörgang mit einem Wattebausch verschliessen.

Nach 20–30 Minuten den erweichten Pfropfen mit reichlich lauwarmem Wasser unter wenig Druck

ausspülen. Keine harten Gegenstände wie Wattestäbchen usw. verwenden.

Ist das Ergebnis nicht zufriedenstellend, darf das Verfahren am gleichen Tag höchstens einmal

wiederholt werden.

Cerumenex muss unbedingt nach jeder Behandlung gut ausgespült werden. Zu häufige Anwendung

oder zu langes Einwirken können Reizungen auslösen.

Es ist wichtig, versehentlich neben dem Gehörgang auf die Haut gelangtes oder aus dem Ohr

herauslaufendes Cerumenex gut mit Wasser abzuwaschen.

Bei Kindern darf Cerumenex nur auf ärztliche Verschreibung angewendet werden.

Halten Sie sich an die in der Packungsbeilage angegebene oder vom Arzt oder der Ärztin

verschriebene Dosierung. Wenn Sie glauben, das Arzneimittel wirke zu schwach oder zu stark, so

sprechen Sie mit Ihrem Arzt, Apotheker oder Drogisten bzw. mit Ihrer Ärztin, Apothekerin oder

Drogistin.

Welche Nebenwirkungen kann Cerumenex haben?

Selten können lokale Hautreizungen, von milden entzündlichen Rötungen der Haut und Juckreiz des

äusseren Gehörgangs bis zu schweren ekzemartigen Reaktionen des gesamten Ohrenbereichs,

auftreten.

In Einzelfällen können Überempfindlichkeitsreaktionen auftreten, die sich äussern mit

Hautausschlag, Hautrötung, Juckreiz oder Schwellungen im Bereich des Gesichts oder des Nasen-

Rachen-Raumes.

Wenn Sie Nebenwirkungen bemerken, die hier nicht beschrieben sind, sollten Sie Ihren Arzt,

Apotheker oder Drogisten bzw. Ihre Ärztin, Apothekerin oder Drogistin informieren.

Was ist ferner zu beachten?

Für Kinder unzugänglich aufbewahren.

Bei Raumtemperatur (15–25 °C) lagern.

Nicht einnehmen. Bei versehentlicher Einnahme, insbesondere durch Kinder, ist sofort der Arzt/die

Ärztin zu benachrichtigen.

Das Arzneimittel darf nur bis zu dem auf dem Behälter mit «EXP» bezeichneten Datum verwendet

werden.

Weitere Auskünfte erteilt Ihnen Ihr Arzt, Apotheker oder Drogist bzw. Ihre Ärztin, Apothekerin oder

Drogistin. Diese Personen verfügen über die ausführliche Fachinformation.
