Loteprednol Etabonate + Tobramycin



This is suitable for steroid-responsive inflammatory eye diseases that require the use of corticosteroids, and there is a superficial bacterial eye infection or risk of bacterial eye infection. Ocular steroids are suitable for inflammation of the palpebral conjunctiva and bulbar conjunctiva, cornea, and anterior part of the eyeball, such as allergic conjunctivitis, rosacea, superficial punctate keratitis, herpes zoster keratitis, iritis, and cyclitis. It is also suitable for chronic anterior uveitis and corneal damage caused by chemical, radiation or thermal burns or foreign body invasion. This also applies to the treatment of postoperative inflammation after eye surgery.



Loteprednol is a corticosteroid which is thought to act by the induction of phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins, which control the biosynthesis of potent mediators of inflammation such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes by inhibiting the release of their common precursor arachidonic acid.

Tobramycin is a member of aminoglycoside which shows bactericidal activity by inhibiting protein synthesis of bacteria.


Dosage & Administration

Shake well before use. Apply one drop into the conjunctival sac of the affected eye(s) every four to six hours. During the initial 24 to 48 hours, the dosing may be increased, to every one to two hours.



Since Loteprednol Etabonate is not detected in plasma following the topical administration, it is not expected to affect the pharmacokinetics of systemically administered medicinal products.



Contraindicated in most viral diseases of the cornea and conjunctiva. Also contraindicated in individuals with known or suspected hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients of this preparation and to other corticosteroids.

Increased intraocular pressure, burning and stinging after instillation, vision problems, discharge, itching, lacrimation disorder, photophobia, corneal deposits, ocular discomfort, eyelid disorder, and other unidentified eye problems are all possible side effects.
