Lotemax Drug Information
Lotemax Eye Ointment Overview
Lotemax Eye Ointment is used to treat eye inflammation and pain after eye surgery. Loteprednol works by relieving symptoms such as swelling, redness, and itching. It belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids.
How to Use Lotemax Eye Ointment
Do not wear contact lenses while you are using Lotemax Eye Ointment. Sterilize contact lenses according to the manufacturer's directions, and check with your doctor before you begin using them again. To apply the eye ointment, wash your hands first. To avoid contamination, do not touch the tube tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface. Gently pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Place a one-half inch (1.5 centimeter) strip of ointment into the pouch. Gently close the eye and roll the eyeball in all directions to spread the medication. Try not to blink or rub your eye. Repeat these steps for your other eye if so directed. Wipe the tip of the ointment tube with a clean tissue to remove extra medication before recapping it. If you are using another kind of eye medication (for example, drops or other ointments), wait at least 5 to 10 minutes before applying other medications. Use eye drops before eye ointments to allow the drops to enter the eye. Use Lotemax Eye Ointment regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same times each day. Apply as directed by your doctor, usually 4 times a day. The dosage and length of treatment are based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Do not use Lotemax Eye Ointment more often or for longer than prescribed because doing so may increase your risk of side effects. Continue to use Lotemax Eye Ointment for the full time prescribed.
