What is a generic medication?

Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

Lacrisert Drug Information

  • Lacrisert Overview

    Lacrisert is an insert that is placed in your eye to treat dry eyes. It is usually used when an artificial tears solution is not successful. Lacrisert may also be used to treat certain other eye disorders (keratitis, decreased corneal sensitivity). It works by keeping the eye moist, helping to protect the eye from injury and infection and to decrease symptoms of dry eyes such as burning, itching, and feeling as if something is in the eye.

  • How to Use Lacrisert

    Read the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start using Lacrisert and each time you get a refill. Learn all preparation and usage instructions. If you have any questions, consult your doctor or pharmacist. To apply Lacrisert, wash your hands first. To avoid contamination, do not touch the insert or let it touch any other surface besides the applicator. If you wear contact lenses, remove them before using Lacrisert. Ask your doctor when you may replace your contact lenses. Use the supplied applicator to place 1 insert into the eye, usually 1 to 2 times daily or as directed by your doctor. Rinse the applicator with hot running water after use. Shake off any visible water droplets, and then replace the applicator in the storage container. Avoid rubbing your eyes when using Lacrisert. If the insert comes out, you may replace it with another one. Your doctor may direct you to also use an artificial tears solution or saline drops with Lacrisert. Use those medications exactly as prescribed. Use Lacrisert regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time(s) each day. It may take several weeks to see the full benefit of Lacrisert. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or worsens.
