Treatment of ocular infections caused by susceptible microorganisms and prevention of inflammation and bacterial infection that may occur after ocular surgery.
Dosage & Administration
Prevention of Post-Surgery Ocular Inflammation and Infection: Instill 1 drop, 4 times/day in the eye to be operated, starting 1 day before the surgery and during 15 days after the surgery.
If an allergic reaction to Moxifloxacin occurs, discontinue use of Moxidex and contact the doctor. Prolonged steroid use may result in ocular hypertension and/or glaucoma with damage to the optic nerve, defect in visual acuity and fields of vision, posterior subcapsular cataract formation, or increased hazard of developing secondary ocular infections. The intraocular pressure must be evaluated routinely. In those diseases causing thinning of the cornea or sclera (white part of the eye), perforations have been known to occur with use of topical corticosteroids. In acute purulent conditions of the eye, steroids may mask infection or enhance existing infection.
Use in Pregnancy: Pregnancy Category C. Moxidex should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus as there are no adequate and well-documented studies in pregnant women.
