8 INDICATIONSEYE: Inflammatory conditions (eg.uveitis, marginal keratitis, allergic conjunctivitis, blepharitis and episcleritis) where development of bacterial infection is likely to occur.EAR: Otitis externa and other inflammatory conditions where bacterial infection is present or suspected.NOSE: Inflammatory conditions where infection is present or suspected.
11 DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION Eye: 1 drop instilled into the eye every one or two hours until control is achieved, when the frequency may be reduced.Ear: 2 or 3 drops instilled into the ear, every two or three hours until control is achieved, when the frequency can be reduced.Nose: 2 or 3 drops instilled into each nostril two or three times daily.
12 WARNING AND PRECAUTIONS Steroids should not be administered to "red eyes" until a definitive diagnosis has been made.Ophthalmological treatment with steroid preparations should not be repeated or prolonged without regular review to exclude raised intra-ocular pressure or unsuspected infections.The unnecessary topical use of neomycin products should be avoided as to minimize the occurrence of neomycin-resistant organisms (and organism cross-resistant to other aminoglycosides).
13 WARNING AND PRECAUTIONS Con’t Topical administration of corticosteroids to pregnant animals can cause abnormalities of foetal development. The relevance of this finding to human beings has not been established; however, topical steroids should not be used extensively in pregnancy.
14 SIDE EFFECTSAcute sensitization to neomycin is a rare event but can occur after topical application to the eye. Eye drops containing corticosteroids cause a serious rise in intra-ocular pressure in a small percentage of the population, including most of those with a family history of glaucoma.Thinning of the cornea leading to perforation has occurred with use of topical corticosteroids.Cataract is reported to have occurred after unduly prolonged treatment of eye conditions with topical corticosteroids.
19 1 drop in the affected eye (s) every 8-12 hours. DOSAGEAND ADMINISTRATION1 drop in the affected eye (s) every 8-12 hours.
20 WARNING AND PRECAUTIONS Stafen should not be used to treat contact lens related irritation.Stafen should not be administered while wearing contact lenses.Lenses may be inserted 10 minutes following administration of Stafen.
21 SIDE EFFECTS Ocular allergic reactions: burning or stinging Conjunctivitisdry eyeseye pain and itchingkeratitislacrimationMydriasisAmong others.
22 USE IN SPECIAL GROUPS Pregnancy: Pregnancy category C. Lactation: It is not known whether this drug or its metabolites are excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Stafen is administered to a nursing woman.
25 INDICATIONSAvatan Eye Drops is indicated for the reduction of elevated intraocular pressure in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension who are intolerant of or insufficiently responsive to another intraocular pressure lowering medication, as monotherapy or as adjunctive therapy.
27 DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION The recommended dose is one drops of Avatan in the conjunctival sac of the affected eye (s) once daily in the evening. If more than one topical ophthalmic product is being used, the medicines must be administered at least 5 minutes apart. When substituting another ophthalmic anti-glaucoma agent with Avatan, discontinue the other agent and start the following day with Avatan.
28 WARNING AND PRECAUTIONS Travoprost should be used with caution in patients with active intraocular inflammation (iritis/uveitis).Travoprost should not be administered while wearing contact lenses. Contact lenses should be removed prior to the administration of the solution. Lenses may be reinserted 15 minutes following administration of Travoprost.
29 SIDE EFFECTSThe most frequently reported treatment-related side-effect is ocular hyperaemia.
