Uses
This medication is used to treat certain allergic eye conditions (vernal keratoconjunctivitis, vernal conjunctivitis, vernal keratitis).

  • Do not store in the bathroom.
  • Keep all medicines away from children and pets.

Overdose
  • Symptoms after swallowing lodoxamide may include: flushing, feeling of warmth, unusual tiredness, sweating, diarrhea.

How To Use
  • To apply eye drops, wash your hands first.
  • To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface.It is best to not wear contact lenses while using this medication.This medication is used in the affected eye(s), usually 4 times daily or as directed by your doctor.
  • Treatment may be continued for as long as 3 months.Tilt your head back, look upward, and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch.
  • Hold the dropper directly over the eye and place 1 drop into the pouch.
  • Look downward and gently close your eyes for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Place one finger at the corner of the eye near the nose and apply gentle pressure.
  • This will prevent the medication from draining away from the eye.
  • Try not to blink and do not rub the eye.
  • Repeat these steps if your dose is for more than 1 drop and for the other eye if so directed.Do not rinse the dropper.
  • Replace the dropper cap tightly after each use.If you are using another kind of eye medication (e.g., drops or ointments), wait at least 5 minutes before applying other medications.
  • Use eye drops before eye ointments to allow the eye drops to enter the eye.Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it.
  • To help you remember, use it at the same times each day.
  • Continue using it for the full time prescribed.It may take up to several days of continued use to see a relief in symptoms.
  • If immediate relief of symptoms (itching) is needed, use other quick-relief medication (such as eye drops containing antihistamines, decongestants, or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs-NSAIDs) along with lodoxamide as directed by your doctor.
  • Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.

  • Eye burning/stinging/discomfort, feeling as if something is in your eye, dry nose, sneezing, headache, dizziness, drowsiness, blurred vision, watery eyes, dry eyes, sticky feeling in the eye, or crusting in the corner of the eye or on the eyelid may occur.
