VIGAMOX 5mg/ml eye drops, solution – REMOXIN (5 ml. botle)
WHAT VIGAMOX IS AND WHAT IT IS USED
VIGAMOX eye drops are used to treat eye infections (conjunctivitis) caused by bacteria.
Adults, including the elderly and children: 1 drop in the damaged eye or eyes, 3 times daily (morning, afternoon and evening).
VIGAMOX can be used in children and newborns, in patients over 65 years of age, and in patients with kidney and liver problems.
Use VIGAMOX in both eyes only if your doctor has told you to. Use VIGAMOX only for a drop in your eyes.
The infection usually weakens within 5 days. If no improvement is observed, please consult your doctor. Use the drops for another 2-3 days or as long as your doctor has prescribed.
– Take the VIGAMOX bottle and mirror.
– Wash your hands.
– Unscrew the cap.
– Keep the bottle pointing down between your thumb and fingers.
– Tilt your head back. Open the eyelid, with the fingers already cleaned, to form a ‘pocket’ between it and the eye. The drop will fall exactly at this point – Move the dropper applicator to the bottle close to the eye. Use the mirror if this makes it easier for you.
– Be careful not to touch the eye, eyelids, surrounding area or other surfaces with the tip of the drip applicator. There is a risk of contamination of the droplets.
– Carefully press the base of the bottle to release a drop of VIGAMOX
– After inserting VIGAMOX, close the eyelid and press the eye in the corner of the nose with your finger and hold it for 2-3 minutes (Figure 3). This will prevent VIGAMOX from moving to other parts of the body, and it is extremely important to be respected in newborn babies and young children.
– If you need to use the drops for both eyes, repeat all the previous steps with the other eye, washing your hands carefully before starting. This will help prevent any possible transmission of the infection from one eye to the other.
– Close the bottle well after use.
If the drop does not get in the eye, try again.
If more than the required amount of VIGAMOX is given, rinse immediately with warm water. Do not drop again until it is time for your next usual dose.
If you accidentally swallow VIGAMOX, consult your doctor or pharmacist immediately.
If you forget to use VIGAMOX, continue with the next dose of your usual schedule. Do not place a double dose to make up for the forgotten dose.
If you are using other eye drops, wait at least 5 minutes between putting VIGAMOX and other eye drops.
If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
