Maxitrol Ophthalmic Ointment Overview
Maxitrol Ophthalmic Ointment is used to treat conditions involving swelling (inflammation) of the eyes and to treat or prevent bacterial eye infections. Maxitrol Ophthalmic Ointment contains neomycin and polymyxin, antibiotics that work by stopping the growth of bacteria. It also contains dexamethasone, an anti-inflammatory corticosteroid that works by reducing swelling. Maxitrol Ophthalmic Ointment treats/prevents only bacterial eye infections. It will not work for other types of eye infections and may worsen them (e.g., infections caused by viruses, fungi, mycobacteria). Unnecessary use or overuse of any antibiotic can lead to its decreased effectiveness.
How to Use Maxitrol Ophthalmic Ointment
Maxitrol Ophthalmic Ointment is applied to the eye(s), usually 3 or 4 times a day or as directed by your doctor. 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 you begin using them again. To apply the eye ointment, wash your hands first. To avoid contamination, be careful not to touch the tube tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface. Tilt your head back, look upward, and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Place a 1/2 inch (1.5 centimeters) strip of ointment into the pouch by squeezing the tube gently. Close the eye and roll the eyeball in all directions to spread the medication. Try not to blink and do not rub the 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. Apply as often as directed by your doctor. If you are using another kind of eye medication (e.g., drops or ointments), apply the eye drops first and wait at least 5 minutes before applying this eye ointment. Use eye drops before eye ointments to allow the eye drops to enter the eye. If you are using another type of eye ointment, wait at least 10 minutes after using Maxitrol Ophthalmic Ointment before applying it. Do not use Maxitrol Ophthalmic Ointment more often than prescribed or for longer than 10 days unless directed by your doctor. Use Maxitrol Ophthalmic Ointment regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same times each day. Continue to use Maxitrol Ophthalmic Ointment for the full time prescribed, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too soon may allow bacteria to continue to grow, which may result in a return of the infection. Inform your doctor if your condition does not improve in a few days.
