An overdose with this medication is not likely to be dangerous. However, as with any medication, it is important to seek medical attention if you may have used too much Bromday (see Bromday Overdose).
If you miss your normal Bromday dose, just use the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, however, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not use a double dose.
Store Bromday at room temperature, in its original bottle, with the cap tightly closed. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children and pets.
Bromday comes in one strength and form: Bromday 0.09% ophthalmic solution. It is available in a 1.7-mL bottle.
Bromday contains the active ingredient bromfenac. Other brand-name prescription eye drop medicines that contain bromfenac include Prolensa® and Xibrom®. Both of these medicines are also approved to treat swelling and pain from cataract surgery.
Prolensa contains a lower strength of bromfenac (0.07% solution, compared with 0.09% solution found in Bromday). Like Bromday, it is used once a day.
Xibrom contains the same strength as Bromday -- 0.09% bromfenac solution. It is used twice a day. Xibrom is no longer available, as the manufacturer stopped making the medicine. However, the drug is available in generic form.
In addition, there are several other NSAID eye drops that are used to treat swelling and pain after eye surgery. These include:
- Diclofenac eye drops (Voltaren Ophthalmic®)
- Ketorolac ophthalmic (Acular®, Acular LS®, Acuvail®)
- Nepafenac (Ilevro™, Nevanac®).
Flurbiprofen ophthalmic (Ocufen®) is another prescription NSAID eye drop. It is used to prevent the pupil from constricting (becoming smaller) during eye surgery.
