Blephamide Drug Information
Blephamide is used to prevent or treat eye infections and to treat swelling in the eye. Blephamide contains an antibiotic (sulfacetamide) that stops the growth of bacteria and a corticosteroid (prednisolone) that reduces inflammation. Blephamide treats only bacterial eye infections. It will not work for other types of eye infections. Unnecessary use or overuse of any antibiotic can lead to its decreased effectiveness.
How to Use Blephamide
To apply eye drops, wash your hands first. Shake this suspension well before each dose. To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface. Before using Blephamide, check it visually. Do not use if it has darkened in color. Do not wear contact lenses while you are using this medicine. Sterilize contact lenses according to manufacturer's directions and check with your doctor before using them. Tilt your head back, look upward and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Hold the dropper directly over your eye and place one drop into it. Look downward and gently close your eyes for 1 to 2 minutes. Place one finger at the corner of your eye (near the nose) and apply gentle pressure. This will prevent the medication from draining out. Try not to blink and do not rub your eye. Repeat these steps for your other eye if so directed, and if your dose is for more than 1 drop. Apply as often as directed by your doctor. Do not rinse the dropper. Replace the dropper cap after each use. If you are using another kind of eye medication (e.g., drops or ointments), wait at least 5 minutes before applying other medications. Use eye drops before eye ointments to allow the eye drops to enter the eye. Use Blephamide regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. Continue using it for the full time prescribed even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may allow bacteria to continue to grow, which may result in a relapse of the infection. Do not use Blephamide for longer than prescribed. If you use it regularly for an extended period of time, do not suddenly stop using it without consulting your doctor. Your dosage may need to be gradually decreased. Inform your doctor if your condition does not improve after 2 days.
Before using sulfacetamide/prednisolone, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to sulfa drugs (e.g., sulfamethoxazole), corticosteroids (e.g., hydrocortisone, prednisone); or if you have any other allergies. Blephamide may contain inactive ingredients (such as preservatives like benzalkonium chloride), which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Blephamide, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,eye problems (e.g., glaucoma, severely dry eyes), eye surgeries (e.g., cataract surgery), diabetes. Your vision may be temporarily blurred or unstable after applying Blephamide. Do not drive, use machinery, or do any activity that requires clear vision until you are sure you can perform such activities safely. Limit alcoholic beverages. Blephamide should be used only when clearly needed during pregnancy. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. It is not known if the medications in Blephamide pass into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
If you miss a dose of Blephamide, use it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Use your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.
