What is Sofracort?
Sofracort containing the active ingredient framycetin sulphate is an anti-inflammatory type of medication called corticosteroids. The antibiotics will help kill bacteria that may cause eye and ear irritations, inflammation and infection. It is used to treat inflammation associated with infection in the front portion of the eye such as blepharitis and infected eczema of the eyelid, allergic, infective and rosacea conjunctivitis, rosacea keratitis, scleritis, episcleritis and iridocyclitis. Some patients may also use it to treat otitis externa and other inflammatory conditions of the external ear.

How is Sofracort used?
When using Sofracort to treat eye conditions, the drops should be applied every 1 to 2 hours for 2 or 3 days and subsequently 3 or 4 times daily. For treating ear conditions, the drop should be applied 3 to 4 times daily to affected ear. Contact a doctor for correct dosage and length of treatment as it will depend on the condition being treated and the patientís response to the treatment. Do not discontinue the medication without consulting a doctor as abruptly stopping the treatment may result in the infection returning and becoming immune to the antibiotics.

Adverse effects
Patients using Sofracort may encounter unwanted side effects such as:

  • Increased intra-ocular pressure
  • Perforation of the cornea
  • Hypersensitivity
  • Burning or stinging of the eye
  • Decreased vision
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or worsen.

Warnings
Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.

Sofracort is not always suitable for all patients. Always consult your health care provider prior to using this medication if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to conceive, using any other medication (prescription or non-prescription), using any herbal products or supplements, or if you have any allergies or other health problems.

The correct dosage and prescription commonly depend on the patient and the condition being treated. Do not adjust your dosage without the approval of your health care provider. This product is only for use as prescribed and instructed.
