Therapeutic Group: Ophthalmic » Steroidal Preparations
Presentation
Lotepro Eye Drops

Lotepro Sterile Ophthalmic Suspension: Each ml contains Loteprednol Etabonate INN 5 mg.

Descriptions
Loteprednol Etabonate is a topical anti-inflammatory corticosteroid for ophthalmic use.

Loteprednol etabonate is structurally similar to other corticosteroids. It is highly lipid soluble which enhances its penetration into cells.

Indications
Loteprednol etabonate is indicated for the treatment of steroid responsive inflammatory conditions of the palpebral and bulbar conjunctiva, cornea and anterior segment of the globe such as:

Allergic conjunctivitis

Acne rosacea

Superficial punctate keratitis

Herpes zoster keratitis

Iritis

Cyclitis

It is also indicated for the treatment of post-operative inflammation following ocular surgery.
Dosage & Administration
Shake the bottle vigorously before using
Steroid responsive disease treatment:
Apply 1 to 2 drops of Lotepro into the conjunctival sac of the affected eye(s) four times daily. During the initial treatment within the first week, the dosing may be increased, up to 1 drop every hour, if necessary. Care should be taken not to discontinue therapy prematurely.

Post-Operative Inflammation:
Apply 1 to 2 drops of Lotepro into the conjunctival sac of the operated eye(s) four times daily beginning 24 hours after surgery and continuing throughout the first 2 weeks of the post-operative period.
Side Effects
Local reactions (e.g. blurred vision, burning, itching, dry eye), photophobia, headache, rhinitis, pharyngitis. Prolonged use may increase IOP, which may be associated with possible development of glaucoma and infrequent optic nerve damage; posterior sub-capsular cataract formation and perforation of the globe where there is thinning of the cornea or sclera.
Precautions
• Shake the bottle well before use
• Patients should be advised not to allow the dropper tip to touch the eye, eyelid, fingers, or any other surface to prevent contamination
• Patients should be advised not to wear soft contact lenses when using this drug
• If this product is used for 10 days or longer, intraocular pressure should be monitored.
• The possibility of fungal infections of the cornea should be considered after long-term steroid dosing
• The use of steroids may delay wound healing.
Contraindications
Lotepro, as with other ophthalmic corticosteroids, is contraindicated in most viral diseases of the cornea and conjunctiva including epithelial herpes simplex keratitis (dendritic keratitis), vaccinia, and varicella, and also in mycobacterial infection of the eye and fungal diseases of ocular structures.
Lotepro is also contraindicated in individuals with known or suspected hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients of this preparation and to other corticosteroids.
