Uses
Ak-Cide is used to treat eye infections.


Storage
  • Store eye drops in a cool, dark place away from moisture and sunlight.
  • Do not store in the bathroom.
  • Do not freeze.
  • Discard the solution (but not the suspension) if it turns cloudy or contains particles.


Overdose
  • If overdose is suspected, contact your local poison control center or emergency room immediately.
  • Ak-Cide may be harmful if swallowed.

How To Use
  • For maximum effect, Ak-Cide must be used routinely as prescribed.
  • Continue using it for the full time prescribed.
  • Stopping Ak-Cide too soon may not clear the infection and could result in a relapse of the infection.
  • If the product is a suspension, shake it well before each dose.
  • To apply eye drops, wash hands first.
  • To avoid contamination, be careful not to touch the dropper tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface.
  • Tilt your head back, gaze upward and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch.
  • Place dropper directly over eye and administer the prescribed number of drops.
  • Look downward and gently close your eye 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.
  • Do not rinse the dropper.
  • If you are using another kind of eye drop, wait at least five minutes before applying other medications.

Side Effects
  • Ak-Cide may temporarily sting your eyes for a minute or two when you first use it.
  • If stinging persists or worsens, inform your doctor promptly.
  • Tell your doctor immediately if you have any of these unlikely but serious side effects: vision changes.
  • If using eye drops with chloramphenicol, notify your doctor immediately if you experience: persistent sore throat, fever, easy bleeding or bruising.
  • An allergic reaction to Ak-Cide is unlikely, but seek immediate medical attention if it occurs.
  • Symptoms of an allergic reaction include: rash, itching, swelling (including in or near the eyes), dizziness, trouble breathing.
  • If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Precautions
  • Tell your doctor your medical history, especially about: eye surgeries, eye problems, contact lens use, any allergies.
  • Vision may be temporarily blurred or unstable after applying eye drops.
  • Use caution if driving or performing duties requiring clear vision.
  • Ak-Cide should be used only when clearly needed during pregnancy.
  • Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.
  • It is not known if this form of Ak-Cide passes into breast milk in large enough amounts to affect a nursing infant.
  • Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.

Missed Dose
  • If you miss a dose, apply it as soon as remembered; do not use if it is almost time for the next dose.
  • Instead, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule.
  • Do not double the dose to catch up.

Drug Interactions
  • Tell your doctor or pharmacist of all prescription and nonprescription drugs you may use, especially of: other eye medicines.
  • Do not start or stop any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval.
