Levobac Eye Drops
Levobac (levofloxacin) eye drops is indicated for the treatment of bacterial conjunctivitis caused by susceptible organisms. In some studies it has been found that Levofloxacin is indicated in post-operative ocular infections and endophthalmitis.
Dosage & Administration
Days 1 and 2: Instill 1 drop in the affected eye(s) every 2 hours while awake, up to 8 times per day. Days 3 through 7: Instill 1 drop in the affected eye(s) every 4 hours while awake, up to 4 times per day.
As with other anti-infective, prolonged use may result in overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms, including fungi. If super-infection occurs, discontinue use and institute alternative therapy. Patients should be advised not to wear contact lenses if they have signs and symptoms of bacterial conjunctivitis. Use in Pregnancy: There are no adequate and well controlled studies in pregnant women. Levofloxacin should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. Nursing Mothers: Levofloxacin has not been measured in human milk. Based upon data from Ofloxacin it can be presumed that Levofloxacin is excreted in human milk. Caution should be exercised when Levobac is administered to a nursing mother. Pediatric Use: Safety and efficacy in infants below the age of 1 year have not been established.
