abnormally open eustachian tubes

I was prescribed Premarin nose drops (made in a Compounding pharmacy) for the abnormally open eustachian tubes...that give the pressure/fullness feeling, and hollow sounding voice.
Any comments on Premarin nose drops?

Re: abnormally open eustachian tubes

I was diagnosed by an ear specialist to have 'abnormally patent eustacian tubes'. Symptoms were the stuffy/plugged up ears, hollowness of voice, vibrating ear drums. Tests included inserting a camera into the tubes via the nose. First to try the Premarin, next likely insert tubes in ear drums, last resort as I heard is surgically closing the tubes with cartilige from nose???
Only have the Premarin for 2 days as of 5/2.

I was advised not to 'pop' the ears as mentioned.
