    Expert advice for Loteprednol

    • Your doctor has prescribed Loteprednol 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 Loteprednol for more than the prescribed duration as it may cause glaucoma or secondary infection.
    • It acts mainly on the surface of the eye and does not increase eye pressure as much as other steroid medications.
    • 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.
    • Your risk of getting an infection may become higher. Tell your doctor immediately if you have a fever, flu-like symptoms, cough, painful urination, or a wound that does not heal.
