Indications & Dosage of Emadine
Emadine is indicated for the treatment of swelling, itching, or redness of the eyes due to allergic conjunctivitis. Like other antihistamines, this drug works by inhibiting the production of certain naturally-occurring chemicals, histamines, that are responsible for allergic symptoms.
For the treatment of symptoms associated with allergic conjunctivitis, apply one drop of Emadine to the affected eye(s) four times in a day. If you have a fungal, viral, or bacterial eye infection and are using an anti-infective drug, only then use Emadine. You must not use Emadine if you have a fungal, viral, or bacterial infection of the eye and are not using an anti-infective drug.
You should follow the following guidelines to ensure that the treatment is both safe and effective:
- Do not use Emadine in a larger quantity or more often than recommended by your healthcare provider. Using a medicine in more quantity or more often does not speed up recovery. On the other hand it may increase your risk to certain side effects.
- Do not let the dropper touch any surface. The dropper is sterile and can become contaminated if it comes in contact with any surface. A contaminated dropper can worsen your symptoms or lead to new infection.
Wash your hands with water before administering the drug
- Remove contact lenses before using Emadine. After receiving the drug, wait for 15 minutes before reinserting them.
