Dexamethasone is employed in the treatment of various conditions, including arthritis, blood and hormone disorders, allergic reactions, skin diseases, eye problems, breathing difficulties, bowel disorders, cancer, and immune system disorders. It can also serve as a diagnostic tool for assessing adrenal gland disorders, such as Cushing’s syndrome.

Classified as a corticosteroid, dexamethasone operates by diminishing the response of the immune system to diverse diseases, thereby alleviating symptoms such as swelling and allergic reactions.

Uses and Dosage

Administer this medication in the affected eye(s) as directed by your doctor, typically 3 to 4 times daily.

While using this medicine, refrain from wearing contact lenses. Follow the manufacturer’s directions for sterilizing contact lenses, and consult your doctor before resuming their use.

Allow several minutes for your vision to clear before engaging in activities like driving or operating machinery.

Consistently use this medication to derive maximum benefit. To facilitate consistency, administer it at the same time(s) each day.

The dosage and duration of treatment hinge on your medical condition and response to the medication. Adhere strictly to the prescribed dosage and duration to mitigate the risk of adverse effects. Avoid overuse or prolonged usage beyond what is prescribed.

Continue using this medication for the entire prescribed duration. Do not cease usage without consulting your doctor, as stopping abruptly may exacerbate certain conditions. Your doctor may advise gradually reducing the dose as necessary.

Do not utilize this product if it becomes contaminated, such as if the ointment changes color or develops particles. Use of contaminated eye medication can lead to infection, severe eye damage, and vision loss. Contact your doctor or pharmacist for further guidance.

Inform your doctor if your condition fails to improve after a few days or if it worsens.

To administer the eye drops, the following steps should be followed:

  1. Thoroughly wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Do not allow the dropper tip to touch the eye or any other surface, and ensure that it is kept clean.
  3. Tilt the head back and pull down the lower lid of the eye using the index finger to form a pocket.
  4. Hold the dropper as close to the eye as possible without making contact, and brace the remaining fingers against the face.
  5. Squeeze the dropper gently to instill a single drop in the pocket created by the lower eyelid while looking upwards.
  6. Remove the index finger from the lower eyelid and keep the eye closed for 2-3 minutes while tilting the head down.
  7. Apply gentle pressure to the tear duct using a finger.
  8. Use a tissue to wipe off any excess liquid from the face.
  9. Wash hands to remove any residual medication.
