Sofracort is a combination product that contains two antibiotics (framycetin and gramicidin) and an anti-inflammatory (dexamethasone). It is primarily indicated for the treatment of certain eye and ear irritations caused by bacteria. The antibiotics in Sofracort help to kill the bacteria, while the anti-inflammatory component helps to reduce swelling and inflammation in the eye or ear.


  • The dosage and administration of Sofracort may vary depending on the specific condition being treated and the instructions provided by your healthcare provider. Follow their prescribed dosage and administration instructions. 
  • For the ears, the usual dose is 2 or 3 drops instilled in the ear canal 3 or 4 times daily. Tilt your head to one side and let the drops fall into the ear canal from above. Alternatively, a saturated gauze wick may be inserted by your healthcare provider into your external ear canal
  • For the eyes, the usual dose for acute conditions is 1 or 2 drops every 1 or 2 hours. This dose is generally used for 2 to 3 days. After the initial acute phase, the dose is reduced to 1 or 2 drops 3 to 4 times daily.
  • Before using the eye drops, wash your hands thoroughly. Follow your healthcare provider on how to use the eye drops.
  • Use the medication for the full duration of treatment, even if you start to feel better. This will reduce the chance of the infection returning and becoming more difficult to get rid of. 
  • If you miss a dose, administer it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If you are unsure about what to do after missing a dose, contact your healthcare provider for advice.


  • Do not touch your ear with the dropper.
  • Do not allow the eye dropper to touch any surface to avoid contamination.
  • Do not administer a double dose to make up for a missed one.

Common Side Effects:

  • Burning or stinging sensation after using the drops
  • Irritation or redness in the eye or ear
  • Blurred vision
  • Eyelid itching and swelling

These side effects are generally mild and temporary. However, if you experience any severe or persistent side effects, consult your healthcare provider for further guidance.

If you have a known allergy to any of the ingredients in Sofracort, such as framycetin, gramicidin, or dexamethasone, you should avoid using this medication. Allergic reactions can range from mild skin irritation to severe reactions. If you experience any signs of an allergic reaction, such as rash, itching, swelling, or difficulty breathing, seek immediate medical attention.

Sofracort should not be used while wearing contact lenses. If you wear contact lenses, remove them before using the drops and wait at least 15 minutes before reinserting them. Contact lenses can absorb the medication and may cause irritation or damage to the lenses.

Limited studies are available on the use of Sofracort during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Consult with your healthcare provider before using this medication if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. They will weigh the potential benefits against any potential risks to you and your baby.

Inform your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you have, especially if you have a history of glaucoma, cataracts, or any other eye conditions. Sofracort may worsen these conditions or interfere with their treatment.

Follow the instructions provided by your healthcare provider regarding the dosage and duration of treatment with Sofracort. Do not exceed the recommended dose or use the drops for longer than prescribed.

This information is not exhaustive. Consult with your healthcare provider for personalized advice and information regarding the use of Sofracort, as they can provide you with the most accurate and up-to-date information based on your specific situation.
