Zymar 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 Zymar (Gatifloxacin-eent).

Allergic reactions: Gatifloxacin may cause a skin rash and other serious allergic reactions. If you notice a skin rash, skin blisters, skin itching, or hives, stop taking the medication and contact your doctor immediately.

Contact lenses: Avoid wearing contact lenses while you have signs and symptoms of bacterial conjunctivitis. Zymar (Gatifloxacin-eent) also contains a preservative which may discolour soft contact lenses.

Pregnancy: Zymar (Gatifloxacin-eent) should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking Zymar (Gatifloxacin-eent), contact your doctor immediately.
