What is Tobradex used for?
Tobradex is used for the treatment of inflammatory conditions of the eye where there is or may also be an eye infection. Some of the eye conditions Tobradex may be used to treat include chronic inflammation of the uvea (a structure of the eye), eye injuries caused by chemicals, radiations or heat burns and eye injuries caused by foreign objects. Antibacterial drugs like Tobradex treat only bacterial infections. They do not treat viral infections. Tobradex contains Dexamethasone, a corticosteroid and Tobramycin, an aminoglycoside antibiotic. Dexamethasone blocks some substances that inflame the body. Tobramycin blocks bacterial growth and reduces infections. Together, they treat the eye. Use the medicine exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The usual adult dose is 1 to 2 drops in the conjunctival sac of the affected eye(s) every 4 hours. During the first 24 to 48 hours, 1 to 2 drops can be applied every 2 hours. As your condition improves, you may reduce the frequency as directed by your doctor or pharmacist.
