Description

Generic

Nepafenac

 

Indications

Nepafenac 0.1 percent Sterile Ophthalmic Suspension is used to alleviate ocular pain and inflammation after surgery, such as cataract surgery. Preventing post-operative cystoid macular edema and preventing surgery-induced miosis (CME).

Post-operative discomfort and inflammation associated with cataract surgery are treated with nepafenac 0.3 percent Sterile Ophthalmic Suspension.

 

Pharmacology

Nepafenac is an anti-inflammatory prodrug that is not a steroid (NSAID). It penetrates the cornea after instillation and is transformed to Amfenac, a strong nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication, via ocular tissue hydrolase. The cyclooxygenase enzyme is thought to be inhibited by amfenac. Prostaglandin production necessitates the presence of this enzyme.
