Mitomycin ophthalmic is administered by a healthcare provider and comes in a single-use vial. Therefore, an intentional overdose is unlikely to occur. However, as with any medication, it is important to seek immediate medical attention if you or someone else may have received too much.
What Should I Do If I Forget a Dose of Mitomycin Ophthalmic?
Because this medicine is administered as a one-time dose by a healthcare provider during eye surgery, you will not need to remember to take any doses. If you forget your eye surgery appointment, call your healthcare provider right away to reschedule.
Mitomycin ophthalmic will be stored by your healthcare provider at room temperature, protected from light. As with all medicines, it should be kept out of the reach of children and pets.
