Maxitrol Dosage

The recommended dose of the eye drops is 1 or 2 drops into the affected eye(s) every 3 to 4 hours.

The recommended dose of the ointment is approximately ½ inch or the ointment into the eye(s) 3 or 4 times a day, or at bedtime along with the eye drops. Follow the directions that your doctor has given you.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are using the medication without consulting your doctor.

The following procedure is recommended when using the eye drops:

  1. Wash your hands.
  2. Shake the bottle of eye drops to ensure the suspension is evenly distributed.
  3. Tilt the head back and gently pull the lower eyelid away from the eye to make a pouch under the eye.
  4. Drop the medication into this space and then let go of the eyelid and gently close the eyes.
  5. Do not blink.
  6. Keep the eyes closed and apply gentle pressure to the inner corner of the eye with your finger for 1 or 2 minutes to prevent excessive absorption into the body.
  7. Wash your hands to remove any medication that may have got on them.
  8. Do not touch the dropper or the applicator tip to any surface (including the eye).

The following procedure is recommended when using the eye ointment:

  1. Wash your hands.
  2. Roll the ointment tube in your hands for a minute to make the ointment flow easier.
  3. Do not touch the tip of the tube or let it touch your eye to avoid contamination.
  4. Tilt your head back, gaze upward, and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch.
  5. Place ¼ to ½ inch of ointment into the pouch by squeezing the tube gently.
  6. Close the eye and roll the eyeball in all directions to spread the medication.
  7. Try not to blink and do not rub the eye.

If you are using both the ointment and the drops, use the drops first and wait for at least 5 minutes before applying the ointment.

It is important to use Maxitrol exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, use 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. Do not apply a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store the eye drops and ointment at room temperature, away from heat and direct light, and keep it out of reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
