Why is Durezol prescribed?
Durezol eye drops is prescribed for the treatment of pain and inflammation that occurs after eye surgery. It is also used in the treatment of endogenous anterior uveitis (a condition where the front portion of the eye is inflamed).
What does it do?
After eye surgery, you may feel mild pain, burning, itchiness, and some discomfort that can be relieved by certain medications. Durezol belongs to a drug class called corticosteroids and it works by inhibiting the release of substances that cause pain and inflammation.
How should I apply it?
Durezol and its generic equivalents are currently available as a 0.05% ophthalmic emulsion. It should only be applied to the eye. Apply the recommended amount of medication your doctor has prescribed.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only use this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
Avoid touching the tip of the dropper with your hands or placing it directly onto your eye and do not let it come into contact with any surface to prevent contamination.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if used properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, apply it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never apply two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before applying Durezol?
Inform your doctor about all the medications you are taking, your current and previous medical history, and any allergic reactions to Durezol or any other ingredients included in the manufacture of this medication.
Durezol may cause blurred vision right after application to your eye. Exercise caution if you will drive or operate machinery after applying Durezol.
