Tobrabac ointment is indicated for the treatment of external infections of the eye and its appendages such as bacterial conjunctivitis, keratitis, corneal ulcer caused by susceptible bacteria.
Dosage & Administration
Tobrabac ointment: In mild to moderate infection, apply a small amount 2-3 times daily into the conjunctival sac(s). In severe cases of infection, apply a small amount 3-4 times daily into the conjunctival sac(s) until improvement is obtained, then reduce the dose gradually.
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 & Lactation
There are no adequate data with respect to the ocular or systemic use of Tobramycin in pregnant women.Therefore, ophthalmic Tobramycin should be used during pregnancy only when potential benefits exceed the risks. Aminoglycosides after systemic administration pass into the milk in low quantity. Breast-feeding is possible with ophthalmic Tobramycin considering the negligible amount of this substance possibly absorbed by the neonate.
