Megabrom Eye Drops (Bromfenac)
What is Megabrom Eye Drops (Bromfenac) used for?
Megabrom (Bromfenac) is an ophthalmic non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to treat patients suffering from swelling and irritation of the eye. The medication operates by preventing the action of certain enzymes in the body that are responsible for causing swelling, pain, redness, and discomfort. This action makes it useful for treating inflammatory conditions or swelling caused by cataract surgery or other medical procedures. Your doctor may also prescribe the use of this medication for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.
How should I use Megabrom Eye Drops (Bromfenac)?
Megabrom Eye Drops (Bromfenac) should always be used according to the instructions of your doctor to get the safest and most effective results from treatment. The normal dosage is one drop administered once or twice each day, but your individual directions will be based on your current health, the condition being treated, and the severity of your symptoms. These should be administered by gently shaking the bottle to mix its contents, tilting your head back, pulling down the lower lid of the affected eye, and dispensing one drop into the eye. Slowly close the eyelid to spread the medication and keep the eye closed for thirty seconds to allow the medication to be absorbed. Do not allow the tip of the bottle to touch any foreign surfaces including the eye itself as this may contaminate the solution. Always observe the medication before use to ensure it is not cloudy or discoloured as this may indicate contamination.
