This is indicated for steroid-responsive inflammatory ocular conditions for which a corticosteroid is indicated and where superficial bacterial ocular infection or a risk of bacterial ocular infection exists. Ocular steroids are indicated in inflammatory conditions of the palpebral and bulbar conjunctiva, cornea and anterior segment of the globe such as allergic conjunctivitis, acne rosacea, superficial punctate keratitis, herpes zoster keratitis, iritis, cyclitis. It is also indicated in chronic anterior uveitis and corneal injury from chemical, radiation or thermal burns, or penetration of foreign bodies. This is also indicated for the treatment of post-operative inflammation following ocular surgery.
Ophthalmic steroid – antibiotic combined preparations
Loteprednol is a corticosteroid which is thought to act by the induction of phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins, which control the biosynthesis of potent mediators of inflammation such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes by inhibiting the release of their common precursor arachidonic acid.
Tobramycin is a member of aminoglycoside which shows bactericidal activity by inhibiting protein synthesis of bacteria.
Dosage & Administration
Shake well before use. Apply one drop into the conjunctival sac of the affected eye(s) every four to six hours. During the initial 24 to 48 hours, the dosing may be increased, to every one to two hours.
Since Loteprednol Etabonate is not detected in plasma following the topical administration, it is not expected to affect the pharmacokinetics of systemically administered medicinal products.
Contraindicated in most viral diseases of the cornea and conjunctiva. Also contraindicated in individuals with known or suspected hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients of this preparation and to other corticosteroids.
Increased intraocular pressure, burning and stinging upon instillation, vision disorders, discharge, itching, lacrimation disorder, photophobia, corneal deposits, ocular discomfort, eyelid disorder, and other unspecified eye disorders may occur. The incidence of non-ocular adverse events (headache) also reported.
