As with any medication, it is possible to use too much Iquix. An overdose may cause eye irritation or discomfort, but is usually not considered dangerous. However, it is a good idea to seek immediate medical attention if you may have overdosed on this medication, or have taken it by mouth.
It is important to try to remember all your Iquix doses. However, if you happen to forget one, use it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the one you missed and continue with your regular schedule. Do not use a double dose.
How Should Iquix Be Stored?
Iquix should be stored at room temperature in its original container. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children and pets.
Iquix comes in one strength and form -- Iquix 1.5% solution. It is available in a 5-mL multidose bottle.
Can I Buy Generic Iquix?
Iquix is not available in generic form (see Generic Iquix for more information).
