  • Your doctor has prescribed Lotenase to treat inflammation (redness and swelling) of the eye due to allergy or after Lasik surgery.
  • Do not skip any doses and finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better.
  • Do not use Lotenase for more than the prescribed duration as it may cause glaucoma or secondary infection.

  • May require frequent follow-ups with the doctor to monitor side effects.
  • Apply pressure on the corner of the eye (close to the nose) for about 1 minute immediately after instilling the drop.
  • Wait for at least 5-10 minutes before delivering the next medication in the same eye to avoid dilution.
  • Stinging sensation may occur for 1-2 mins. Notify your doctor if it persists for longer.
  • Make sure to use within 4 weeks of opening the bottle.
  • Take with food to avoid an upset stomach.
  • Dose is decreased or tapered over time.
  • Most side effects occur with high doses and on long-term use.
