How does Ciloxan Eye Drops work?
Ciloxan Eye Drops is a multiple dose, synthetic, sterile, antimicrobial medicine for topical use on the eyes. It is active against a wide variety of gram-negative and gram-positive ocular pathogens. Ciprofloxacin is actually a bit different from other quinolones, as it has a fluorine atom, a piperazine moiety, and a cyclopropyl ring. With every mL of the solution, it contains active ciprofloxacin HCI 3.5mg equivalent to 3mg base, preservative benzalkonium chloride at 0.006%, and then inactive acetic acid, sodium acetate, mannitol, edetate disodium, hydrochloric acid or sodium hydroxide for pH adjustment, and then purified water.
If the patient wears contact lenses, they should be removed before application, and the doctor should also advise whether they can be reapplied after using Ciloxan Eye Drops. When eye drops are applied, the patient should close that eye for 2 to 3 minutes with the head tipped down without squinting or blinking. A finger should be gently pressed into the corner of the eye to prevent the liquid from draining into the tear duct. If there is more than one drop being applied, a 5-minute gap between drop application is recommended, and if any other eye drops products are prescribed, there should be a 10-minute gap between their application.
How long does Ciloxan Eye Drops last?
This treatment is usually used for 5 to 14 days in a row, and the patient should use this medicine for the entire prescribed length by the doctor. Even if symptoms do improve before the duration is finished, the infection might not have completely cleared, which might lead to the symptoms coming back.
Any patients who have demonstrated hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients in Ciloxan should not use this product, or anybody who has hypersensitivity to quinolones in general.
