Bausch + Lomb Inc.

Lotemax (loteprednol etabonate ophthalmic ointment) 0.5% is a corticosteroid in an oinment formulation indicated for the treatment of postoperative inflammation and pain following ocular surgery.

At-a-Glance
  • Mechanism of Action: Corticosteroids inhibit the inflammatory response to a variety of inciting agents and probably delay or slow healing. They inhibit the edema, fibrin deposition, capillary dilation, leukocyte migration, capillary proliferation, fibroblast proliferation, deposition of collagen, and scar formation associated with inflammation. While glucocorticoids are known to bind to and activate the glucocorticod receptor, themolecular mechanisms involved in glucocorticoid/glucocorticoid receptordependent modulation of inflammation are not clearly established. However, corticosteroids are thought to inhibit prostaglandin production through several independent mechanisms.
  • Dosage: Apply a small amount (approximately ? inch ribbon) into the conjunctival sac(s) four times daily beginning 24 hours after surgery and continuing throughout the first 2 weeks of the post-operative period.
