Description

What is Lotemax Gel?

Lotemax Gel is used to treat eye inflammation and pain after eye surgery. Loteprednol works by relieving symptoms such as swelling, redness, and itching. It belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids.

Do not wear contact lenses while you are using this medication. Sterilize contact lenses according to the manufacturer's directions, and check with your doctor before you begin using them again.

To apply the eye gel, wash your hands first. To avoid contamination, do not touch the bottle tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface. Turn the bottle upside down and shake once to fill the tip with the gel. Gently pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Place the prescribed number of drops into the pouch. Gently close the eye and roll the eyeball in all directions to spread the medication. Try not to blink or rub your eye.

Repeat these steps for your other eye if so directed.

If you are using another kind of eye medication (for example, drops, ointments, or other gels), wait at least 5 to 10 minutes before applying other medications. Use eye drops before eye ointments or gels to allow the drops to enter the eye.

Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same times each day.

Apply as directed by your doctor, usually 4 times a day. The dosage and length of treatment are based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Do not increase your dose or use this drug more often than prescribed. Your condition will not improve any faster, and your risk of side effects will increase.

Continue to use this medication for the full time prescribed. Do not stop using this medication without consulting your doctor. Some conditions may become worse when this drug is suddenly stopped. Your dose may need to be gradually decreased.

Do not use this product if it becomes contaminated (for example, the gel turns a dark color or develops particles in it). Using contaminated eye medication can cause infection, serious damage to the eye, and loss of vision. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve after a few days or if it worsens.

Cautions

Before using loteprednol, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. This product may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details.

Before using this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history, especially of: eye infections, cataracts, glaucoma, severe nearsightedness (myopia), diabetes.

After you apply this drug, your vision may become temporarily blurred. Do not drive, use machinery, or do any activity that requires clear vision until you are sure you can perform such activities safely.

Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products).

If you develop a new eye infection or injury, or require eye surgery, ask your doctor if you should continue to use your current bottle of loteprednol eye gel or start a new bottle.

During pregnancy, this medication should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.

It is unknown if the medication in this product passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.

Side Effects

Temporary blurred vision may occur when you apply this medication. A feeling as if something is in your eye may also occur. If these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.

Using this medication for prolonged periods or in high doses may cause serious side effects, including serious eye problems (such as cataracts and high pressure inside the eyes). Tell your doctor right away if you have any serious side effects, including: vision problems/changes, eye pain, headache, dizziness.

This medication may mask the signs of an eye infection. It may also put you at greater risk of developing an eye infection, especially with prolonged use. Report right away any new or worsening symptoms such as eye discharge/swelling/redness/itching/pain, vision problems/changes, or no improvement of your current eye condition. Your doctor will need to adjust your treatment.

A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, get medical help right away if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including: rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing.

This is not a complete list of possible side effects. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

FAQs

Q: What happens if I miss a dose?
A: Use the medicine as soon as you can, but skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next dose. Do not use two doses at one time.

Q: What should I avoid while using loteprednol ophthalmic?
A: Do not share Lotemax with another person, even if they have the same symptoms you have. This medicine may cause blurred vision and may impair your reactions. Avoid driving or hazardous activity until you know how this medicine will affect you.
