Gatilox 0.3% contains the active ingredient Gatifloxacin, a fluoroquinolone class of antibiotic. It is an ophthalmic solution of 0.3% which is proposed for the treatment of bacterial conjunctivitis. Gatifloxacin inhibits the growth of bacteria responsible for causing infection. It helps to relieve symptoms such as itching, redness, or soreness caused due to eye infections. The product is for external use only. Before using this eye drop, inform your doctor if you have any eye condition.
The dose and duration of the treatment will be decided by your ophthalmologist based on your eye condition.
The proposed dosing regimen and route of administration involves:
- On day one, instil a single drop every two hours in the affected eye while awake, up to eight times, and on days 2 to 5, instil one drop twice daily in the affected eyes while awake approximately twelve hours apart.
- Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.
- Avoid touching the dropper tip against your eye or anything else.
- Hold the dropper close to the eye without touching it.
- Gently squeeze the dropper and place the medications inside the lower eyelid.
- Wipe off extra medication with the help of tissue or a cotton swab.
- Avoid skipping any application and finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better. This will ensure the infection is completely cured and prevent it from returning.
If you follow your doctor's instructions carefully, you may expect your symptoms to improve during your treatment. Call your doctor if your symptoms do not resolve or worsen or if you develop other eye problems during the treatment.
Gatilox eye drop is contraindicated in patients with a history of hypersensitivity to Gatifloxacin, other quinolones, or any of this medication's components. Also, let your ophthalmologist know all the prescription, non-prescription, vitamins, and nutritional supplements. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. If you become pregnant during the treatment, please call your ophthalmologist. Also, let your ophthalmologist know if you wear contact lenses. You should remove your contact lenses for the period you suffer from bacterial conjunctivitis or while applying eye drops. The safety and effectiveness of Gatiflox eye drop in infants below one year of age have not been established. Clinical trials have demonstrated that it is safe and effective for treating bacterial conjunctivitis in pediatric patients one year or older.
The following side effects have been identified during post-approval use of Gatilox ophthalmic solution or other ophthalmic solutions containing Gatifloxacin. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to medicine exposure. These reactions included anaphylactic reactions, angioedema (pharyngeal, oral or facial edema), dyspnea, blepharitis, eye swelling (including corneal and conjunctival oedema), hypersensitivity, including signs and symptoms of eye allergy and allergic dermatitis, nausea, pruritus, dermatitis and blurred vision.
Most side effects of the medication do not require medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to this medicine. Talk to your doctor if they persist or if you are worried about them.
