Dexaguard Eye Drops (Dexamethasone & Chloramphenicol)
Therapeutic Group: Ophthalmic » Steroid Antibiotic Combinations
Dexaguard Eye Drops

Each ml eye drops contain Dexamethasone Sodium Phosphate BP equivalent to Dexamethasone 1 mg and Chloramphenicol BP 5 mg.

Dexamethasone is one of the most potent corticosteroids; it is 5 -14 times more potent than prednisolone and 25 - 75 times more potent than cortisone and hydrocortisone. Of paramount importance with regard to local therapy is the fact that dexamethasone is over 2000 times more soluble than hydrocortisone or prednisolone. The addition of chloramphenicol, a broad-spectrum antibiotic, has made this combination yield excellent results in inflammation of the anterior uvea.
Acute purulent conjunctivitis; fresh inflammation of the superficial and deeper corneal layers and corneal ulceration. Keratitis disciformis and the more deep-seated forms of post-herpetic keratitis. Allergic conjunctivitis, allergic blepharitis. Acute and chronic iritis and iridocyclitis.

Side Effects
