General Information on Surolan
The generic and chemical names of Surolan are polymyxin b sulfate, miconazole nitrate, and prednisolone acetate. Prednisolone acetate is an adrenocortical steroid product and prepared in the form of a sterile ophthalmic suspension that helps reduce itching, redness, swelling, and other allergic reactions in the eye. Miconazole nitrate is an anti-fungal agent, while polymyxin b sulfate is a polypeptide antibiotic used for treating infections caused by bacteria. As such, Surolan has antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. It is prescribed for otic use in dogs, and you can buy Surolan online or from a pet pharmacy after consulting a veterinary doctor.
Side effects of Surolan
Dog owners are advised to take note of necessary precautions before they buy Surolan for their dogs. They must check the external ear canal of their pet and look for ruptures, especially tympanic membrane ruptures. If this is witnessed, they should consult the vet before administering the drug. Surolan must also not be given to a pregnant or nursing dog. Pet owners should always check the expiry date on the drug label before they buy Surolan. Administering expired Surolan can lead to severe side effects or complications. Surolan should not be administered orally and must be kept away from children.
The otic solution is available in Surolan 15ml, Surolan 30ml, and Surolan 100ml strengths. Each mL of Surolan contains polymyxin B sulfate 0.5293 mg, Miconazole nitrate 23 mg, and prednisolone acetate 5 mg. You need to shake the bottle well before using it and ensure that your pet’s ears are clean and dry before application. The recommended initial dose is 5 drops of Surolan 15ml twice a day. Once the drops have been administered, rub your pet’s ear gently. Continue this therapy for 7 consecutive days. If the infection persists even after regular administration, your vet may recommend another 7 day course using Surolan 30ml. Surolan 100ml is prescribed for dogs that suffer from severe cases of fungal or bacterial ear infections.
Surolan is not known to interact with any other pet medication, although it is recommended that you do not administer the drug to a dog suffering from perforated tympanum or pets that are hypersensitive to prednisolone acetate, miconazole nitrate, or polymyxin B sulfate. This otic solution should also not be used in tandem with drugs that can induce ototoxicity.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
