Bromday Uses

How Does Bromday Work?

As mentioned previously, Bromday belongs to a group of medications called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). As the name states, NSAIDs reduce inflammation. They do this by blocking an enzyme known as cyclooxygenase (COX), which is responsible for the production of substances in the body known as prostaglandins.
 
Prostaglandins have a variety of functions in the body. One of their roles is to activate an inflammatory response, including inflammation in the eye. They also cause pain. By blocking the production of prostaglandins, Bromday reduces inflammation and pain.
 
Bromday is given as an eye drop, and works directly in the eye. With normal use, very little, if any, of the drug is absorbed from the eye into the bloodstream.
 

Can Children Use It?

This medication has not been adequately studied in children, and is not approved for use in individuals younger than 18 years old. Talk to your child's healthcare provider about the particular risks and benefits of using Bromday in children. 
 

Can Older Adults Use It?

Older adults can use Bromday. Individuals older than 65 years of age are expected to respond to and tolerate the medication no differently than those younger than age 65.  
 

Can You Use Bromday for Off-Label Reasons?

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend this medicine for something other than reducing pain and inflammation following cataract surgery. This is referred to as an "off-label" use. Bromday could be used off-label to reduce pain and inflammation after other eye surgeries.
