FucithalmicFucithalmic

Viscous eye-drops

 

Fucithalmic is a sterile 1% aqueous sustained-release formulation of fusidic acid, preserved with benzalkonium chloride.

 

Properties

Fucithalmic is active against Staphylococci, Streptococci, Neisseria, Haemophilus, Moraxella and Corynebacteria.

 

The sustained-release formulation of Fucithalmic ensures a prolonged contact with the conjunctival sac. A twice-daily application provides sufficient concentrations in all relevant tissues of the eye. Fucithalmic penetrates well into the aqueous humour.

 

Indications

Bacterial eye infections caused by susceptible organisms in conjunctivitis, blepharitis, sty, keratitis, dacryocystitis and in connection with removal of foreign bodies.

 

Dosage

One drop to be instilled into the eye twice daily. Treatment should be continued for at least two days after the eye appears normal.

 

Contra-indications

Hypersensitivity to any component

 

Precautions

Should not be used when contact lenses are being worn.

 

Pregnancy and lactation

There is inadequate evidence of safety in human pregnancy. Animal studies and many years of clinical experience have suggested that fusidic acid is devoid of teratogenic effects. Safety in nursing mothers has not been established.

 

Side-effects

Transient stinging may occur. Fucithalmic has a very low allergenic potential.

 

Drug interaction

Not relevant

 

Incompatibilities

Fucithalmic is a ready-for-use preparation and should, therefore not be mixed with other ingredients or preparations.

 

Storage

Store at controlled room temperature ( 15C - 25C )

 

Discard 30 days after opening.
