What are some things I need to know or do while I take Bactocin?

  • Tell all of your health care providers that you take Bactocin (ophthalmic). This includes your doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and dentists.
  • Use care when driving or doing other tasks that call for clear eyesight.
  • Bright lights may bother you. Wear sunglasses.
  • Do not use longer than you have been told. A second infection may happen.
  • Very bad and sometimes deadly allergic reactions have rarely happened with other forms of Bactocin (ophthalmic) as well as drugs like this one. Talk with the doctor.
  • Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan on getting pregnant. You will need to talk about the benefits and risks of using Bactocin (ophthalmic) while you are pregnant.

Administration

• Don't give zinc- or iron-containing drugs within 2 hours of Bactocin.

What is Bactocin?

Bactocin is a fluoroquinolone (flor-o-KWIN-o-lone) antibiotic that fights bacteria in the body.

Bactocin is used to treat bacterial infections of the skin, lungs, prostate, or urinary tract (bladder and kidneys). Bactocin is also used to treat pelvic inflammatory disease and Chlamydia and/or gonorrhea.

Fluoroquinolone antibiotics can cause serious or disabling side effects that may not be reversible. Bactocin should be used only for infections that cannot be treated with a safer antibiotic.

Bactocin may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Additional studies in rats with doses up to 360 mg/kg/day during late gestation showed no adverse effect on late fetal development, labor, delivery, lactation, neonatal viability, or growth of the newborn. There are, however, no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Bactocin ophthalmic solution should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus.

WARNINGS

NOT FOR INJECTION.

Bactocin ophthalmic solution should not be injected subconjunctivally, nor should it be introduced directly into the anterior chamber of the eye.

Serious and occasionally fatal hypersensitivity (anaphylactic) reactions, some following the first dose, have been reported in patients receiving systemic quinolones, including Bactocin. Some reactions were accompanied by cardiovascular collapse, loss of consciousness, angioedema (including laryngeal, pharyngeal or facial edema), airway obstruction, dyspnea, urticaria, and itching. A rare occurrence of Stevens-Johnson syndrome, which progressed to toxic epidermal necrolysis, has been reported in a patient who was receiving topical ophthalmic Bactocin. If an allergic reaction to Bactocin occurs, discontinue the drug. Serious acute hypersensitivity reactions may require immediate emergency treatment. Oxygen and airway management, including intubation should be administered as clinically indicated.

Bactocin Ophthalmic Interactions

Avoid wearing contact lenses until you no longer have symptoms of the eye infection.

This medicine may cause blurred vision and may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be alert and able to see clearly.

Do not use other eye medications unless your doctor tells you to.

It is not likely that other drugs you take orally or inject will have an effect on Bactocin used in the eyes. But many drugs can interact with each other. Tell each of your healthcare providers about all medicines you use, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products.

Eye infections are a common cause of conjunctivitis. In conjunctivitis, your eye becomes inflamed, feels gritty, and may water more than usual. The white of your eye may look red, and your eyelids may become swollen and stuck together with a discharge when you wake up in the morning. Only one eye may be infected to begin with, but it often spreads to both eyes. Most cases of infective conjunctivitis clear within a week or so without treatment. For more severe infections, or for infections which do not clear on their own, an antibiotic eye drop such as Bactocin can be used.

Symptoms of an Bactocin overdose may include:

How should this medicine be used?

Bactocin comes as a tablet to take by mouth. It is usually taken with or without food twice a day for 3 days to 6 weeks. The length of treatment depends on the type of infection being treated. Your doctor will tell you how long to take Bactocin. Take Bactocin at around the same times every day and try to space your doses 12 hours apart. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take Bactocin exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

You should begin to feel better during the first few days of your treatment with Bactocin. If your symptoms do not improve or if they get worse, call your doctor.

Take Bactocin until you finish the prescription, even if you feel better. Do not stop taking Bactocin without talking to your doctor unless you experience certain serious side effects that are listed in the IMPORTANT WARNING and SIDE EFFECT sections. If you stop taking Bactocin too soon or if you skip doses, your infection may not be completely treated and the bacteria may become resistant to antibiotics.

Why is this medication prescribed?

Ophthalmic Bactocin ophthalmic is used to treat bacterial infections of the eye, including conjunctivitis (pink eye) and ulcers of the cornea. Bactocin is in a class of medications called quinolone antibiotics. It works by killing bacterial cells that cause infection.

Getting the most from your treatment

  • Before you start the treatment, read the manufacturer's printed information leaflet from the pack. The manufacturer's leaflet will give you more information about the drops, and a full list of side-effects which you may experience from using them.
  • If your eyes have an obvious discharge or 'crust', it can help if you bathe them with cool clean water before using Bactocin.
  • Use the drops regularly, exactly as your doctor tells you to. If the infection is severe, this is likely to be every 2-4 hours for the first two days. (Just use the drops while you are awake - you do not need to wake yourself up during the night to put them in.) On day three, reduce the frequency down to four times a day.
  • If your symptoms do not improve within a few days, or if they become worse, speak again with your doctor.
  • When you first put the drops into your eye, it may cause blurred vision. This should quickly clear, but make sure you can see clearly again before you drive or use machines or tools.
  • Take care to avoid spreading the infection from one eye to the other, and to other members of your family. Washing your hands regularly (particularly after touching your eyes), and not sharing towels or pillows will help to prevent the infection from spreading.
  • If the tip of the bottle touches your eye(s) when putting the drops in, it is a good idea to squeeze out two or three drops straightaway on to some tissue and rinse the tip with salt water.
  • Eye infections, or using Bactocin eye drops, may cause your eyes to become more sensitive to sunlight than usual. Wearing sunglasses may help to protect your eyes.
  • If you are using any other eye drops, leave at least five minutes between applying each preparation. This is to prevent more liquid going into your eye than it can handle. Otherwise the drops will overflow from your eye and not have the intended effect.
  • Even when your eye appears normal again, there may still be some bacteria present. It is important to continue to use the drops for a further 48 hours once your eye appears normal. This will help to make sure that all the bacteria have been killed. It is likely that you may need to use the drops for about a week, but you should not use them for any longer than 10 days.
  • Do not wear contact lenses until your symptoms have completely gone. Wait for 24 hours after the last dose of eye drops before using your lenses again.
