Lotemax Dosage

The usual dose of Lotemax (Loteprednol) ophthalmic gel is 1 to 2 drops into the conjunctival sac (the gap between the eyeball and the eyelid) of the operated eye(s) 4 times daily, starting 24 hours after surgery and continuing for 2 weeks after surgery. Lotemax (Loteprednol) should start to work right away. If there is no improvement within 2 days, contact your doctor.

Before using the eye gel, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water. Invert the closed bottle of gel and shake it once to fill the tip. Do not allow the tip of the dropper to touch any surface, including your eyes or fingers. If you are using 2 drops, wait 30 seconds before applying the second drop. If you are using other medications in the eye, wait at least 15 minutes before applying them.

Do not wear contact lenses while you are using Lotemax (Loteprednol) ophthalmic gel.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications.

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule.

Lotemax Precautions

Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take.

Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.
