Topical use of clioquinol may increase the amount of protein-bound iodine (PBI) in patients with normal thyroid function and therefore may interfere with some thyroid function tests (such as PBI, radioactive iodine and butanol-extractable iodine). These tests should not be performed within a period shorter than 1 month following the use of this ear drop. Other tests, such as the T3 resin sponge test or the T4 determination test, are unaffected by clioquinol.
Application to extensive or eroded areas of skin may lead to increased PBI values within 1 week.
