Loteprednol etabonate functions by reducing the production of certain substances that cause inflammation in the eye. Its targeted action helps manage the inflammation without the broader systemic effects that can occur with other corticosteroids, making it a preferred choice for eye-related inflammations.



Lotemax, with its active ingredient loteprednol etabonate, belongs to the class of medications known as corticosteroids. It is used mainly in ophthalmology to reduce inflammation in conditions such as eye surgeries, infections, allergies, and certain types of conjunctivitis. By working to inhibit immune responses that cause inflammation, Lotemax helps alleviate symptoms like swelling, redness, and pain in the eye.

Patients should:

● Use Lotemax as prescribed by their healthcare provider.
● Apply the drops or ointment to the affected eye as directed, usually 2 to 4 times daily.
● Avoid touching the tip of the dropper or tube to any surface, including the eye, to prevent contamination.
● Understand that symptom improvement should be noticed within a few days but complete the course as prescribed.


● Lotemax is available as an ophthalmic gel, ointment, and eye drops. Patients should follow the specific instructions for the prescribed form to ensure proper administration to maximize benefits and reduce the risk of side effects.

● Precautions:

● Use with caution in patients with a history of glaucoma, cataract surgery, or herpes simplex due to the potential for increased intraocular pressure (IOP) or exacerbation of infections.
● Regular monitoring of IOP may be necessary during treatment.
● Not recommended for use in viral, fungal, or bacterial eye infections without concurrent anti-infective therapy.

Drug Interactions:

● Caution is advised with other eye medications to prevent possible interference or increased risk of side effects.
● Patients should wait 5-10 minutes before applying any other ophthalmic preparation to allow proper absorption.

● Keep the container tightly closed when not in use.
● Do not freeze the eye drops or ointment.

Special Precautions

● Inform the healthcare provider of other medications being used, especially other eye medications.
● Pregnant women should discuss the risks and benefits with their healthcare provider as the potential effects on fetal development are not well studied.

Symptoms of an overdose (largely related to extended use or accidental ingestion) may include:
