How To Use
  • Place Ak-Taine in the eye(s) usually just before the procedure; or use as directed by your doctor.
  • It may be necessary to repeat a dose every 5 to 10 minutes but prolonged use is not recommended.
  • Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy.
  • 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.
  • If you are wearing contact lenses, remove them before using eye drops.
  • Then tilt your head back, gaze upward, and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch.
  • Hold the dropper directly over the eye and instill 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.
  • Replace the dropper cap after each use.
  • If you are using another kind of eye medication (e.g., drops or ointments), wait at least five minutes before applying other medications.
  • Use eye drops before eye ointments, to allow the eye drops to enter the eye.
  • Ak-Taine solution should be clear to light yellow in color.
  • If it is discolored (darker), do not use the solution.

Side Effects
  • Redness, burning, or stinging of the eye(s) may occur.
  • If these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor.
  • Tell your doctor immediately if any of these serious side effects occur: eye pain, eye swelling, vision changes.
  • Tell your doctor immediately if dryness or cracking of the skin on the fingertips occurs.
  • This may be a sign of a skin allergy (e.g., allergic contact dermatitis).
  • If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

  • Tell your doctor your medical history, especially of: other eye problems (e.g., cataracts, infections), allergies (especially drug allergies).
  • Prolonged use of eye anesthetics is not recommended; doing so could cause permanent eye problems (e.g., corneal opacities) or loss of vision.
  • Ak-Taine should be used only when clearly needed during pregnancy.
  • Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.
  • It is not known if Ak-Taine passes into breast milk.
  • Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
