How to cope with side effects?

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Eye irritation
    Try placing a warm or cold pack over your closed eyes. Putting a chilled black tea bag over your eyes may also help. Remove eye and face make-up before going to bed and wash your face and eyes regularly. Rinse your eyelids gently and pat dry with a clean, dry towel. Do not rub your eyes. Raise your head at night to reduce fluid retention. If your condition does not improve, talk to your doctor. There may be medicines available depending on the cause of the inflammation.
  • Coping with Eye pain
    Make sure you are using the correct amount of this medicine. Do not use too much and do not use it too often. If the symptoms are bad, there may be an alternative medicine, so talk to your doctor. Do not use other eye drops to ease the discomfort without talking to your doctor. To relieve discomfort, try placing a cold compress over your closed eyes few times a day. Try not to touch or rub your eyes. Wear sunglasses when you are outside. Drink enough water to stay hydrated. Do not keep looking at your phone, computer or television screen for long hours.
  • Coping with Blurred vision
    You can consider washing your eyes with water. Avoid driving or using tools or machines if your vision is impaired. Do not take your next dose if your vision is still blurry. If it gets worse or does not improve, ask your doctor to recommend eye drops or talk about changing your medications.
  • Coping with Photophobia
    If your eyes are sensitive to bright light, use your hand or a hat to reduce glare while outdoors. Try to stay away from bright lights and shiny surfaces. Wearing tinted glasses or sunglasses will also help. Keep lights dimmed inside. Avoid long screen time and take frequent eye breaks from your device or avoid it totally if you can. If your condition does not improve, talk to your doctor. Your doctor may be able to prescribe you eye drops or other medications that can reduce your symptoms.

How to use Suthin Eye Drop

This medicine is for external use only. Take it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Hold the dropper close to the eye without touching it. Gently squeeze the dropper and place the medicine inside the lower eyelid. Wipe off extra liquid.

How Suthin Eye Drop works

Suthin Eye Drop is a combination of five medicines: Chlorpheniramine Maleate, Camphor, Menthol, Phenylephrine and Naphazoline which relieve eye itching/discomfort caused by allergies. Chlorpheniramine Maleate is an antiallergic which blocks the action of certain chemical messengers responsible for red, itchy, teary eyes. Camphor and Menthol provide a cooling effect to the eye. Phenylephrine and Naphazoline are decongestants which work by narrowing blood vessels of the eye to relieve inflammation (redness and swelling).
