Levofloxacin Ophthalmic Solution stop bacterial eye infections in their tracks and give dogs and cats quick relief from pain, swelling, itching and discomfort.
Levofloxacin Ophthalmic treats only bacterial eye infections. It will not work for other types of eye infections. Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections.
Levofloxacin Ophthalmic Solution is indicated for the treatment of bacterial conjunctivitis caused by susceptible strains of the following organisms:
*Efficacy for this organism was studied in fewer than 10 infections.
Instill one to two drops in the affected eye(s) every 2 hours while awake, up to 8 times per day.
Instill one to two drops in the affected eye(s) every 4 hours while awake, up to 4 times per day.
Levofloxacin Ophthalmic Solution is contraindicated in patients with a history of hypersensitivity to levofloxacin, to other quinolones, or to any of the components of this medication.
Not for Injection. Levofloxacin Ophthalmic Solution should not be injected subconjunctially, nor should it be introduced directly into the anterior chamber of the eye.
In patients receiving systemic quinolones, serious and occasionally fatal hypersensitivity (anaphylactic) reactions have been reported, some following the first dose. Some reactions were accompanied by cardiovascular collapse, loss of consciousness, angioedema (including laryngeal, pharyngeal or facial edema), airway obstruction, dyspnea, urticaria, and itching. If an allergic reaction to levofloxacin occurs, discontinue the drug. Serious acute hypersensitivity reactions may require immediate emergency treatment. Oxygen and airway management should be administered as clinically indicated.
As with other anti-infectives, prolonged use may result in overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms, including fungi. If superinfection occurs, discontinue use and institute alternative therapy. Whenever clinical judgment dictates, the patient should be examined with the aid of magnification, such as slitlamp biomicroscopy, and where appropriate, fluorescein staining. Patients should be advised not to wear contact lenses if they have signs and symptoms of bacterial conjunctivitis.
