Tobradex Dosage

Drops: The usual adult dose is 1 to 2 drops instilled into the eye every 4 hours. In the first 24 to 48 hours, your doctor may increase the dose to 1 or 2 drops every 2 hours. Your doctor will reduce the dose gradually based on how your condition improves. Shake the drops well before using them. To prevent contamination of the dropper, make sure it does not touch the eye, skin, or other surfaces.

Ointment: The usual adult dose is a 1.25 cm (one-half inch) ribbon applied into the eye (along the edge of the lower eyelid) up to 3 or 4 times daily, or used in addition to the drops at bedtime. To prevent contamination of the tip of the ointment container, make sure it does not touch the eye, skin, or other surfaces.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as 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 taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to use Tobradex exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, use it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule.

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.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Tobradex. 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. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Tobradex Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Tobradex.

Blurred vision: Tobradex may cause a temporary blurring of vision. Do not drive or operate machinery until your vision has cleared.

Contact lenses: If you use contact lenses, ask your doctor about their use while using Tobradex. Usually, contact lenses should not be worn when treating an eye infection.

Contact lenses must be removed from the eye before putting the drops in the affected eye and should not be reinserted until at least 15 minutes after using the drops.

Long-term use: Prolonged use of Tobradex may result in Glaucoma, with damage to the optic nerve, vision problems, perforation of the cornea, and Cataracts. Prolonged use of Tobradex may also result in problems with metabolism and delayed healing and overgrowth of microorganisms (e.g., certain bacteria or fungi) that are not killed by the antibiotic. If there is no improvement after 5 or 7 days of therapy or if your condition worsens, call your doctor. If you are using Tobradex for a prolonged period of time, your doctor should check your eye pressure regularly.

Pregnancy: Tobradex should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking Tobradex, contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: It is not known if Tobradex passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking Tobradex, it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.
