Civox Eye Drops
Ciprofloxacin 0.3% ophthalmic solution is indicated for the treatment of corneal ulcers, conjunctivitis, and blepharitis, which are caused by susceptible strains of bacteria.
Dosage & Administration
For Corneal Ulcers: Instill 2 drops into the affected eye every 15 minutes for the first six hours and then 2 drops into the affected eye every 30 minutes for the remainder of the first day. On the second day, instill 2 drops into the affected eye hourly. On the third through the fourteenth day, place 2 drops into the affected eye every four hours. Treatment may be continued after 14 days if corneal re-epithelialization has not occurred. Bacterial Conjunctivitis/Blepharitis: Instill 1 drop to the conjunctival sac(s) every two hours for two days and 1 drop every four hours for the next five days.
General: As with other anti-infective, prolonged use may result in overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms, including fungi. If super-infection occurs, discontinue use and initiate alternative therapy. Ciprofloxacin should be discontinued at the first appearance of a skin rash or any other sign of hypersensitivity reaction. Use in Pregnancy & Lactation: There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Ciprofloxacin ophthalmic solution should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus.
