How to take the Medicine
Consumption Info If you are using other eye drops, leave at least 5 minutes between putting in MOXIFLOXACIN and the other drops.
Drug quanitty Always use this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. The usual dose is… Adults, including the elderly, and children: 1 drop in the affected eye or eyes, 3 times a day (in the morning, in the afternoon and at night). MOXIFLOXACIN can be used in children, in patients over 65 years of age and patients with kidney or liver problems. There is only very limited information on the use of this medicine in the newborn and its use is not recommended in the newborn. Only use MOXIFLOXACIN in both eyes if your doctor told you to. Only use MOXIFLOXACIN for dropping in your eyes. The infection normally improves within 5 days. If no improvement is seen, contact your doctor. You should continue to use the drops for a further 2-3 days or as long as your doctor told you to.
Drug Dose •Get the MOXIFLOXACIN bottle and a mirror •Wash your hands •Twist off the cap •Hold the bottle, pointing down, between your thumb and fingers •Tilt your head back. Pull down your eyelid with a clean finger, until there is a ‘pocket’ between the eyelid and your eye. The drop will go in here. •Bring the bottle tip close to the eye. Use the mirror if it helps •Do not touch your eye or eyelid, surrounding areas or other surfaces with the dropper. It could infect the drops •Gently press the bottom of the bottle to release one drop of medicine at a time •After using MOXIFLOXACIN, press a finger into the corner of your eye, by the nose for 2-3 minutes. This helps to stop the medicine getting into the rest of the body and is important in young children. •If you are using the drops in both eyes, wash your hands before you repeat the steps for your other eye. This will help prevent spreading the infection from one eye to the other. •Close the bottle cap firmly immediately after use If a drop misses your eye, try again.
Excess Drug Consumption If you use more medicine than you should, rinse it all out with warm water. Don’t put in any more drops until it’s time for your next regular dose.If you accidentally swallow MOXIFLOXACIN contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
Forgot Drug Consumption If you forget to use the medicine, continue with the next dose as planned. Do not use a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose.
