In brief: Ear wax remover
Debrox is the brand name for carbamoyl peroxide, which is an ear drop for softening up ear wax, and may dissolve some of the wax.
If a person has his ear canals plugged up with firm ear wax, he can use a few drops, once a day, for 2-3 days prior to his appointment with his doctor. His primary care doctor will then have a much easier time flushing the wax out with water.

In brief: Peroxide
The active ingredient in debrox is peroxide, which helps break up wax.
You can actually make your own, cheaper version by just diluting hydrogen peroxide 1/2 and 1/2 with distilled or boiled water. If you are using it to clean out wax, usually you use it once or twice a day for a week or two. If you are a frequent producer of wax, then sometimes a little mineral oil in the ear once a week helps.

In brief: Ear Wax Removal
Debrox is the #1 branded peroxide eardrop used in america.
It is also available in many non-branded peroxide irrigation wax removal kits. Give the drops 3 - 5 day use, if the plugged sensation does't clear, go see your primary healthcare provider for an ear exam.
