Lotemax Eye Drops: Medication for Treating Eye Inflammation

Lotemax is an eye drop suspension. Lotemax is used to treat inflammation of the eye, after surgery.Sometimes the eye may become inflamed (red and painful). Loteprednol etabonate is one of a group of medicines called corticosteroids. It acts by reducing inflammation and eases the symptoms. Because it is used in low doses directly where it is needed, its action is only at this place.

Lotemax is indicated for the treatment of steroid responsive inflammatory conditions of the palpebral and bulbar conjunctiva, cornea, and anterior segment of the globe, such as allergic conjunctivitis, acne, rosacea, superficial punctate keratitis, herpes zoster keratitis, iritis, cyclitis, and selected infective conjunctivides, when the inherent hazard of steroid use is accepted to obtain an advisable diminution in edema and inflammation.

Lotemax is less effective than prednisolone acetate 1% in two 28-day controlled clinical studies in acute anterior uveitis, where 72% of patients treated with Lotemax experienced resolution of anterior chamber cells, compared to 87% of patients treated with prednisolone acetate 1%. The incidence of patients with clinically significant increases in IOP (>10 mm Hg) was 1% with Lotemax and 6% with prednisolone acetate 1%. Lotemax should not be used in patients who require a more potent corticosteroid for this indication.
