What is Zoxan D Eye/Ear Drop?
Zoxan D containing the 2 active ingredients ciprofloxacin and dexamethasone is both a quinolone antibiotic and corticosteroid type of medication. The medication works by preventing bacteria from reproducing and reducing inflammation, swelling, redness, irritation and itchiness. It can be used to treat infections of the eyes or ears, including swimmerís ear.
How is Zoxan D Eye/Ear Drop used?
Zoxan D is usually applied 2 times per day, evenly spaced 12 hours apart or as directed by a doctor. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage and length of treatment as it will depend on the condition being treated and the patientís response to the therapy. The drops should be administered in the same way other eye or ear drops are, consult a health care provider for further assistance. Always continue with the medication until the fully prescribed cycle is complete, even if symptoms have cleared, as abruptly stopping the treatment may allow the infection to return and cause the bacteria to become harder to treat.
Patients using Zoxan D may encounter unwanted side effects such as:
- Blurred vision
- Stinging sensations
- Increased light sensitivity
Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persists or worsen.
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.
